High Speed Communication Circuits and Systems: Course Description

Graduate students will learn about applications for wireless and broadband data links for high speed communication systems in the 'High Speed Communication Circuits and Systems' OpenCourseWare. The free graduate course is offered by MIT and teaches students the analytical skills and intricate design issues associated with circuit and system levels for high speed communication. The course is designed to teach students both aspects of each high speed communication group: circuits and systems. The lecture topics for each group include VCOs, high speed and low noise amplifiers, transmission lines, high speed digital circuits, GMSK transceivers, frequency synthesizers and clock and data recovery circuits. Students will also learn how to do circuit-simulations with computer programs, such as SPICE and CppSim, a custom C++ simulator. The MIT course was taught by Professor Michael Perrott in 2003 as a lecture class two times per week.

This OpenCourseWare includes lecture notes, homework assignments, two projects and a practice exam. If you are interested in taking this free course, visit the high speed communication course page.
