Course Descriptions

Electrical Engineering (EE) is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the study and application of electricity, electronics and electromagnetism. Common EE tasks include designing communication systems, energy conversion and power delivery, control systems applications, design of analog and digital systems, and others.

ECE 412 - Software Defined Radio

A software-defined radio (SDR) is characterized by its flexibility: Simply modifying software can completely change the radio’s functionality. This course addresses many of the choices an SDR designer must make to build a complete digital radio. Topics could include: modeling corruption, (de)modulation, AGC, filtering, bits to symbols, carrier and timing recovery, pulse shaping, equalization, coding, noise figure for the RF front end, and clock-jitter of the A/D. In the integral laboratory students will use LabVIEW to create a complete digital radio using the NI USRP 2920 platform.
