TSKS01 Digital kommunikation
Course program autumn 2011
Examination
The examination consists of two parts, that are reported separately to LADOK:
- TEN1 (5 hp), which is a traditional written exam, and
- LAB1 (1 hp), which consists of two lab assignments which is examined by oral reporting before leaving the lab.
5.1 Written Exam (TEN1)
The exam is a written exam. It consists of three parts, an introductory task, a question part and a problem part.
Totally, you can get at most 15 points. Allowed aids during the exam: Paper, pencil, rubber, pocket calculator, and the Tables & Formulas booklet from Signal Theory.
5.1.1 The introductory task
No points are given for the introductory task. It has to be solved correctly to pass the exam. It examines the following aim:
- The student should be able to reliably perform standard calculations regarding digital modulation, binary (linear) codes for error control and source coding.
5.1.2 The question part
The question part consists of two questions, where you are asked to elaborate on (or explain) topics of this course. These questions can give you at most five points each. You need at least three points from this part of the exam to pass. This part examines the following aims:
- The student should be generally aquainted with modern communication, especially digital communication, i.e. be able to briefly describe several communication techniques.
- The student should be able to briefly account for some common channel models, especially for cables, radio channels and optical channels.
- The student should be able to describe problems that arise in telecommunication situations, using own words, and be able to describe, and in a relevant way, compare methods to counteract those problems.
- The student should be able to account for the connection between different concepts in the course in a structured way using adequate terminology.
5.1.3 The problem part
The problem part consists of four traditional problems. These problems can give you at most five points each. You need at least six points from this part of the exam to pass. This part examines the following aim:
- The student should be able to, with some precision, analyze and compare various choices of digital modulation methods and coding methods in terms of error probabilities, minimum distances and related concepts.
5.1.4 Grading
The grade on the exam, and also on the course, is based on the total number of points obtained in the question and problem parts.
Grading limits (Swedish grades):
- Grade 3 (pass): Intro task correct and 14 points
- Grade 4: Intro task correct and 19 points
- Grade 5: Intro task correct and 24 points
Totally, you can get at most 30 points.
5.2 Laborations (LAB1)
The laborations examine the aim
- be able to implement such communication systems that are treated in the course in block form and empirically evaluate them.
The first laboration takes place during the first half of the course, i.e. HT1. The second laboration takes place during the second half of the course, i.e. during HT2. They will be based on a Lab-memo that will be made available at the course web site.
Both laborations are done in the Research lab of the Division of Communication Systems. It is located on the top floor of Building B, in corridor D between entrances 25-27, close to 27.
