Course Contents
The communication lab course contains experiments about analogue and digital communication, at the beginning of the lab the students are introduced about the different lab devices such as the frequency meter, the CRO, the function generator and the signal source. then the first part of the lab which is the analogue communication contains experiment shows the students how to generate and demodulate the different types of AM and FM then in second group the student must practice about digital communication like sampling, PCM, Sigma-Delta modulation, the data formats and noise in digital system including the Matlab simulation.. .
