Digital Communications

by Dr. Robert Heath | University of Texas, Austin
Digital Communications is authored by Prof. Robert Heath of University of Texas, Austin. The course is well suited to post graduate studies in wireless communications and focuses on the real world challenges faced by physically separate transmitters and receivers. Featuring 10 lab classes to fill one semester, the course deep dives into algorithm design for modulation and demodulation; pulse shaping; energy detection; equalization; frame detection; introduction to orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM); frequency correction and sync; and OFDM channel coding. A sample lab is available for free download. The complete manual is included in the NI Digital Communications Teaching Bundle (see Resources tab).
