High-Level Wireless Digital Communications for Program and Engineering Managers Course Sampler


Published on

This two-day course is designed to provide an overall view of wireless communications including commercial and military applications for Program Managers, Engineering Managers, and others that do not have a technical engineering background and who are looking to understand Wireless Communications at a high level to be more effecting in dealing with customers, staff, and those working on these programs. It is also an excellent refresher course for those engineers that want to be more involved with Digital Communications in their careers. This is a very informative class at a high level so managers that are involved or going to be involved with Wireless Communications can understand at a high level what the engineers and programs are developing. It includes high level descriptions, enough detail to understand the concepts with little math or analysis involved. This is focus towards spread spectrum systems, which is nearly all of communications today. It covers a wide range of data link communication techniques, including tradeoffs of cost reduction and size reduction methods using a budget to determine what is needed for the wireless system. Thus the student gains a firm understanding of the processes needed to effectively understand wireless data link communication systems which is vital to their jobs. You will gain an intuitive understanding from all of the experiences of the Instructor who has been working with communications for over 25 years.
This seminar has been taught to a number of Program Managers and other Managers at other companies with excellent feedback by those who took the class.
Students will receive a copy of the instructor's textbook, Transceiver and Systems Design for Digital Communications, 3rd Edition.

  3. 3. Link Budget • Link - Connects the Transmitter to the Receiver • Budget - Allocation of Power and Noise through the Link • Tracks Signal & Noise Levels from Tx PA to Rx Detector (LNA) – Power Output (PA), Tx Losses, Channel Losses, Rx Losses – Signal/Noise at Receiver’s Detector – Required S/N (or Eb/No for BER) • Used in Solving Tradeoffs – Size, cost, data rate, LPI/LPD, waveform, coding, etc. Rx Antenna Tx Antenna Power & Noise Through the Link Transmitter Receiver 1Bullock Engineering Research Copyright 2010
