Laboratory of Electronic and Computer Engineering 2

Course Description

The purpose of the course is to give students the practical knowledge in analysis and design of electronic instrumentation systems as well as analysis, modeling and simulation of data transmission systems using Matlab. The course offers implementation of the concepts and tools that are taught in Electronic Instrumentation through design examples with real devices, as well as an individual hands-on experience about the concepts that are taught in the course Signal Processing in Communications.

General Competencies

Ability to design, develop, test, evaluate and document an instrumentation system. Skills in programming within Matlab environment, especially using Simulink toolbox. Ability to analyze, model and simulate behavior of data transmission systems. Practical knowledge about lower layers of communication systems.

Learning Outcomes

  1. analyze impacts of imperfections of the analog components and noise on the accuracy of the measurement channel
  2. develop electronic measurement systems for measurement of very low DC voltages
  3. develop electronic measurement system for measurement of very low AC voltages
  4. combine methods for signal extraction from noise
  5. analyze the effects of real-world parameters of analog subsystems in communication systems
  6. develop various parts of communication systems, for example filters, Hilbert transformers, multipliers, decimators, interpolators, modulators and demodulators, frequency synthesizers
  7. develop behavioral model of software defined radio receiver in Matlab environment
  8. assemble implementation models of software defined radio receivers on platforms containing DSP processors or application specific integrated circuits (ASIC)
