ELT-43506 Communication Systems Laboratory Course, 5-9 cr
Ari Asp, Mikko Valkama
|ELT-43506 2019-02||1 - 4||
|The course can be started in September or February by participating in mandatory background lectures. In this context, it is checked that the students have sufficient background knowledge and skills to take the course.
The course includes a number of partly elective laboratory exercises. For each of the chosen exercises, a pre-report, a laboratory measurement report, and a final report need to be completed in an acceptable way.
The goal of laboratory course is to become familiar with the tools used in practical communication system development. After the course a student will be able to use general tools and methods for telecommunication development tasks independently. After the course the student will be able to understand basic behavior of functional blocks of a communication system. The actual laboratory work is expected to take 30 % of the effort. Acquiring the background knowledge, as well as examination and evaluation of the measurement results belong to the student's self studies.
