The course provides the basic knowledge of various digital modulation and demodulation techniques used in digital communication system. Comparison of various techniques will enable the student to select most appropriate technique for the application. The course includes the statistical analysis like mean, variance etc. The error detection and error correction codes are also included.
Course Outcome
1. Convert analog signal into digital signal using different techniques like PCM, DM, ADM.
2. Understand the concept of ISI and reduction of ISI through nyquist criteria.
3. Compare various digital modulation techniques
4. Understand behavior of various modulation-demodulation techniques in presence of noise.
5. Know probability, random variable and various statistical analysis methods.
6. Derive channel capacity for discrete memory less channel and continuous channel.
7. Compare various error detection and correction codes.

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
