Learning activities and teaching methods
Learning outcomes
The aim is to familiarize students with basic processes of signal processing including modulation, sampling, and quantization. Students are further familiarized with the terms and relations of theory of information.
Knowledge Define the main ideas and conceptions of the subject, describe the main approaches of the studied topics, recall the theoretical knowledge for solution of model problems.
