In these “Communication SystemNotes PDF”, you will study the concepts of electronics in communication and communication techniques based on Analog Modulation, Analog and digital Pulse Modulation. Communication and Navigation systems such as GPS and mobile telephony system are also introduced. This paper will essentially connect the text book knowledge with the most popular communication technology in real world.
The topics we will cover will be taken from the following list:
Electronic communication: Introduction to communication – means and modes. Power measurements (units of power). Need for modulation. Block diagram of an electronic communication system. Brief idea of frequency allocation for radio communication system in India (TRAI). Electromagnetic communication spectrum, band designations and usage. Channels and base-band signals.
Analog Modulation: Amplitude Modulation, modulation index and frequency spectrum. Generation of AM (Emitter Modulation), Amplitude Demodulation (diode detector), Single Sideband (SSB) systems, advantages of SSB transmission, Concept of Single side band generation and detection. Frequency Modulation (FM) and Phase Modulation (PM), modulation index and frequency spectrum, equivalence between FM and PM, Generation of FM using VCO, FM detector (slope detector),Qualitative idea of Super heterodyne receiver.
Analog Pulse Modulation: Channel capacity, Sampling theorem, Basic Principles-PAM, PWM, PPM, modulation and detection technique for PAM only, Multiplexing (time division multiplexing and frequency division multiplexing).
Digital Pulse Modulation: Need for digital transmission, Pulse Code Modulation, Digital Carrier Modulation Techniques, Sampling, Quantization and Encoding. Concept of Amplitude Shift Keying (ASK), Frequency Shift Keying (FSK), Phase Shift Keying(PSK), and Binary Phase Shift Keying (BPSK).
Satellite Communication: Introduction, need, Geosynchronous satellite orbits, geostationary satellite advantages of geostationary satellites. Transponders (C – Band), Uplink and downlink, path loss, Satellite visibility, Ground and earth stations. Simplified block diagram of earth station.
Mobile Telephony System: Basic concept of mobile communication, frequency bands used in mobile communication, concept of cell sectoring and cell splitting, SIM number, IMEI number, need for data encryption, architecture (block diagram) of mobile communication network, idea of GSM, CDMA, TDMA and FDMA technologies, simplified block diagram of mobile phone handset, 2G, 3G and 4G concepts (qualitative only), GPS navigation system (qualitative idea only).
