Communication Systems I: Course Description

Students explore analog and digital communication systems in detail through this free course. The course begins by covering the fundamentals of analog communication. Students use basic Fourier properties and their knowledge of sampling to analog AM and FM modulators and demodulators. Much of the course is dedicated to digital communication, including baseband and bandpass digital systems and signal space concepts. Lab work builds an understanding of the effects of design choices on eye and constellation diagrams. Utah State University professor Jacob Gunther teaches this free course, which requires MATLAB software to access.

Class notes and related resources are available free online. If you are interested in analog and digital communication, visit the Communication Systems course page.
