This course covers the transition between 2G and 3G systems and the technologies (speech and channel encoders, interleaving, encryption, equalization, multi-user detection, smart antennas) that are used in this transition and future generations. Technical and compatibility aspects of digital cellular systems are discussed along with a review of the standards for the industry. The course covers TDMA and CDMA systems. Credit will be given for either ECE 512 or ECE 712/714 but not both.
