Communication System
Block Diagram
 Source encoder converts message into message signal or bits
 Transmitter converts message signal or bits into format
appropriate for channel transmission (analog/digital signal)
 Channel introduces distortion, noise, and interference
 Receiver decodes received signal back to message signal
 Source decoder decodes message signal back into original
message

Summary
 Communication systems send information
electronically over communication channels
 Communication systems recreate transmitted
information at receiver with high fidelity
 Many different types of systems which convey
many different types of information
 Design challenges include hardware, system, and
network issues
 Focus of this class is design and performance of
analog and digital communication systems
