EESC6353 - Broadband Digital Communication

EESC 6353 Broadband Digital Communication (3 semester hours) Characterization of broadband wireline and wireless channels. MAP and ML detection. Intersymbol Interference (ISI) effects. Equalization methods to mitigate ISI including single-carrier and multi-carrier techniques. Equalization techniques and structures including linear, decision-feedback, precoding, zero-forcing, mean square-error, FIR versus IIR. Multi-Input Multi-Output (MIMO) Equalization. Implementation issues including complexity, channel estimation, error propagation, etc. Real-world case studies from Digital Subscriber Lines (DSL) and wireless systems. Students work individually or in small teams on project and present their findings to class. Prerequisites: EE 4360 and knowledge of MATLAB. (3-0) T
