The following resources come from the 2009/10 BEng (Hons) in Digital Communications & Electronics (course number 2ELE0064) from the University of Hertfordshire. All the mini projects are designed as level two modules of the undergraduate programmes.
The objectives of this module are to investigate the following functions in a radio receiver for a communication system
• RF amplification
• Frequency conversion
• IF amplification and filtering
This project involves working from a specification for the performance of a radio receiver and making laboratory measurements on various building blocks. These will be connected to form a complete receiver whose overall performance will be assessed using both test equipment and 'off air' signals.
