The course focuses on the principles and theory of spread spectrum (SS) communications with emphasis on CDMA and satellite positioning. Issues to be covered include, e.g., principles of SS techniques, spreading codes, code acquisition, code tracking and performance analysis of single- and multi-user detection in various channel conditions.
Lectures, calculus and Matlab exercises, and an optional computer simulation project.
In an optional Matlab project work, students carry out an individual simulation study of a system or an algorithm related to the lectures. Topics and detailed instructions.
Lectures are on Thursdays, 14-16, starting January 13th, 2011, in classrooms TC221. Calculus exercises are on Tuesdays, 14-16, starting January 25th, in TC221. Detailed timetable below.
5 cp by passing the final examination
7 cp by passing the examination AND completing a successful computer simulation project
The course will be based mostly on the following books:
Bulletin Board

Topics and Timetable

  1. Theory of spread spectrum tecniques
  2. Aplication 1 - WCDMA and HSPA evelution
  3. Aplication 2 - Satellite positioning
