Modulation Techniques

Discussion of Modulation Techniques

5G Wireless Networks (265)

This three day course provides comprehensive information on the 5G wireless network with a focus on physical layer and air interface technologies. The course starts with a review of cellular standards evolution and the shortcomings that 5G addresses. Next we move on to describe the modulation waveforms and also look at the issues that are introduced by working with higher GHz frequency bands. Further topics include Massive MIMO, network architecture, 5G system features, and evolutionary services.

Practical Digital Wireless Signals - Measurements and Characteristics (210)

Physically intuitive understanding is the purpose for this course on Wireless signal and system fundamentals. Understanding why these signals and techniques work, not just how, is the objective of these three days.

Practical Digital Wireless Signals (232)

Physically intuitive understanding is the purpose for this course on Wireless signal and system fundamentals. Understanding why these signals and techniques work, not just how, is the key objective of this course. This course is similar to course 210, but is shortened to three days by omitting the measurement demos.

Digital Mobile and Wireless Communications - Radio Interface for 4G/LTE, IMT-Advanced, 5G (016)

This five-day course is an in-depth study of modulations used in modern digital communication systems such as the IMT-2000 system and the wireline DSL systems. Modulation techniques covered include Gaussian Minimum Shift Keying (GMSK), pi/4-QPSK for wireless communications; Discrete Multitone (DMT), Quadrature Amplitude Modulation, QAM, Carrierless AM-PM, and CAP for wireline systems. Trellis coding, Viterbi algorithms, and multiple access techniques are also discussed, with particular emphasis on CDMA and WCDMA. There will be a special emphasis on the OFDM multiple access technique as well as an in-depth discussion of CDMA and WCDMA.

Radio Systems: RF Transceiver Design from Antenna to Bits and Back (241)

This course on RF transceiver issues spends a full day covering digital modulation principles. Please see the outline for day four of the course.

Applied Design of RF/Wireless Products and Systems (161)

This three-day course focuses on digital modulation in a practical context. RF designs for cellular phones, wireless LANs, and other cordless products have a difficult journey from concept to mass production. Not only are specialist skills required to architect these systems, and to invent suitable circuit topologies, but also to solve the integration and manufacturability issues of a high volume product. This course teaches the practicalities of turning a prototype circuit into a design suitable for production.
