7/28/20 to 8/27/20


Location: Virtual

Event Description

This course builds on the IEEE course “DSP for Wireless Communications” also taught by Dan Boschen, further detailing digital signal processing most applicable to practical real-world problems and applications in radio communication systems. Students need not have taken the prior course if they are familiar with fundamental DSP concepts such as the Laplace and Z transform and basic digital filter design principles. The course title has been changed with some minor additions but this is the same course that was previously taught titled “More DSP for Wireless Communications”, with the addition of Python demonstrations using Jupyter Notebooks.

Topics / Schedule:

  • Sessions 1A&1B: DSP Review, Radio Architectures, Digital Mapping, Pulse Shaping, Eye Diagrams 
  • Sessions 2A&2B: ADC Receiver, CORDIC Rotator, Digital Down Converters, Numerically Controlled Oscillators 
  • Sessions 3A&3B: Digital Control Loops; Output Power 
  • Control, Automatic Gain Control
  • Sessions 4A&4B: Digital Control Loops; Carrier and Timing Recovery, Sigma Delta Converters 
  • Sessions 5A&5B: RF Signal Impairments, Equalization and Compensation, Linear Feedback Shift Registerss 

Webinar Dates:
Tuesdays: July 28, August 4, 11, 18, 25, Thursdays, July 30, August 6, 13, 20, 27

This course will be presented with a live instructor using web-meeting software. The course content will be covered in 10 sessions as described above.
