Catalog Description: EE 477 Digital Communication                                                            (4+0+0)4

Stochastic processes. Noise analysis in analog communication. Data transmission through AWGN channel, bandpass data transmission, equalization. Optimum  receiver design,  carrier and pulse synchronization. Error probabilities for binary/m-ary transmission. Carrier modulation : CAM, CPM, CFM, QAM and their performances. Entropy, quantization and rate distortion, information sources, channel capacity, coding.

 Prerequisites: EE 374, MATH 343.

 Coordinator: Ayşin Ertüzün, Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering


Goals:   The course covers basic principles of digital communication.  It begins with a review of probability theory and continues with an introduction to stochastic processes, which is a tool for statistical analysis of communication systems. The analysis and design of digital communication systems are discussed. Discrete pulse and digital carrier modulation schemes are covered.


Learning Objectives:


At the end of this course, students will be able to:

Analyze stochastic signals
Design  bulding blocks of baseband and passband digital communication systems such as pulse shaping filters, correlative coders
Analyze modulation schemes used in passband data transmission
Compute probabiliry of error for different modulation schemes
Design optimal recievers in the form of matched filter and correlative recievers

Prerequisites by Topic:


Analog Communications
Pulse Digital Modulation Schemes



1.       Random Processes  (2 Weeks)

2.       Baseband Pulse Transmission  (3 weeks)

3.       Signal Space Analysis (3 weeks)

4.       Passband Digital Transmission (4 weeks)

5.       (Time permitting) Introduction to information theory and its implications for digital communication systems


Course Structure: The class meets for two lectures a week, each consisting of two 50-minute sessions. 5-6 sets of homework problems are assigned per semester.  There are two in-class mid-term exam and a final exam.

Computer Resources: None.

Laboratory Resources: Concurrently with EE 479 – Communication Laboratory Course



Homework sets (10%)
Two Midterms (25% each).
Final exam (40%).

Outcome Coverage:


(a) Apply math, science and engineering knowledge.  This course covers the principles of digital communication.  Statistical communication and state space analysis for communication systems are heavily emphasized in lectures, homework sets and exams.

(c) Design a system, component or process to meet desired needs. Designing  building blocks of baseband and passband digital communication systems such as pulse shaping filters, correlative coders, optimal receivers in the form of matched filter and correlative receivers take more than half of the course time.
