This is a joint undergraduate/graduate-level course that uses linear system theory to understand and analyze digital communication systems. Important topics in the course include line coding, introduction to random variables and random processes, performance of digital communication systems, and an introduction to spread spectrum techniques and error control coding. These topics are similar to those that would be covered in a graduate-level digital communications course, however, without a random variables prerequisite this course is not as mathematically challenging.
The textbook used for the course is, "Modern Digital and Analog Communication Systems", 4th Edition, by B. P. Lathi.
