This course is an introduction to the fundamental design principles of radio communications with the main focus on the signal processing at the physical-layer. We start from discussions on the theory and characterization of radio communication systems and expand to principles of radio signal propagation, digital modulations, and detection. Later, we describe physical-layer signal processing for radio transmission technologies. This course will have a practical approach where communication theory will be presented by design examples through different signal processing techniques. While we focus on signal processing in communications, there are no strict requirements on background in digital communications or advanced signal processing. To complement the lectures, we introduce well-defined computer simulation exercises and educational software-defined radio (SDR) platform where baseband functions are implemented in SDR to experience a real-life communication over a wireless channel.
