Practical Radio System Considerations Implementation Issues Spectral Regulatory Constraints Engineering Trade-offs I When designing wireless communication systems, decisions are required that adequately balance various system requirements I Transmit power, i.e., communication range, battery life I Data rate, i.e., bandwidth, throughput I Probability of bit error, i.e., error robustness I Interference I Cost I Form factor I Some of these requirements can be conflicting I Transmit power versus probability of bit error I Interference versus data rate I Cost versus form factor I Design decisions dependent on target wireless application Professor Alexander M.

Practical Radio System Considerations Implementation Issues Spectral Regulatory Constraints “Faster Than Real-time” Concept I Rate at which discrete information is mapped to and from the analog domain dictated by sampling rate I Defined by the analog-to-digital converter (ADC) and digital-to-analog converter (DAC) I Bottleneck of any digital communication system I Digital processing rate could be orders of magnitude higher than ADC/DAC I Within intra-sample time instants, numerous digital processing cycles can occur I Commit numerous digital processing cycles for each sample I Human operator unaware of any delay in transmitting/receiving samples I If sampling rate is in “real-time”, then the digital processing between samples is “faster than real-time” I Faster than real-time concept important since advanced processes and algorithms can be employed I Equalization and signal distortion compensation Professor Alexander M.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
