Link to Lecture Schedule
Tuesday lectures at 8:30-10:00, without break
Special course on multicarrier (OFDM, OFDMA, SC-FDMA, FBMC, DMT) and multiantenna (MIMO) techniques and their applications to mobile communication systems, WLAN/WiFi, terrestrial radio and TV transmission,and digital subscriber line modems.
During period 4 on Tuesdays at 8:30-10:00 and Thursdays at 14:15-17:00, both in room TB207.
The lectures will be mostly given by Markku Renfors (contact info below); occasionally other researchers from the group
At the end of Thursdays’ lecture sessions, about 45 min.
Homework problem solutions to be presented by the students as a part of the bonus system. The solutions should given to Markku before the start of each exercise session, on paper or by email.
Also additional worked-out exercises about topics covered in the lectures.
Model solutions well be available in POP until the first exam in May 2017.
Exercises include various elements which are needed for the Exercise Project.
Exam and a mandatory (small) Exercise Project.
Bonus system helps to improve the grade
Possibility to pass the course through active participation and exercises, without exam
Lecture attendance: 13 sessions, 1 point per session, max 13 p.
Exercise solutions: 7 sessions, graded at scale 0…4, max 28 p.
Total: b = 0 … 41 p.
Bonus points for exam: B = round(b/10)
0 … 4 p. added to the exam points
Typical grading scale: 15 p. to pass, 27 p. for grade 5
To pass the course (with grade 1) without exam: B ≥ 28 & completed Exercise Project
The lecture slides will be available in PDF format under TUT's POP system.
