Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The aim of the course is to acquaint students with the design and optimization of modern transmission (radio RF and optical OW) systems for the needs of new generation networks based on software defined radio using virtual instrumentation. Upon completion of this course, students should be able to design, implement, optimize, and verify modern transmission systems based on software-defined radio using virtual instrumentation.

Subject syllabus:

The subject is focused on: a) The use of software defined radio (SDR) and virtual instrumentation (VI) based cognitive radio in the design and optimization of modern transmission systems. b) Generating and analyzing digitally modulated signals, including SDR-based channel modeling tool using VI. c) Advanced signal processing methods in modern radio networks - design and optimization of adaptive equalization methods (transmission channel equalization) using SDR and VI. d) Implementation of proposed and optimized methods (modulation, coding, equalization, etc.) on real hardware in the form of PXI (PCI eXtensions for Instrumentation) modular system and USRP (Universal Software Radio Peripheral) system based on SDR and VI. Upon completion of this course, students should be able to design, implement, optimize, and verify modern transmission systems based on software-defined radio using virtual instrumentation.
