Training on Digital Modulations (sponsored by: ROHDE & SCHWARZ CANADA INC.)


Training Overview
Digitally modulated signals are very important for use in modern communication systems. There are several
methods for encoding data digitally, and there are also important considerations such as data rate, the use of
filters, and encoding methods. It is also important to understand how these signals can be distorted. This training
provides a good understanding of the fundamentals and provides a hands-on session with vector signal
generators and vector signal analyzers.

Anyone who would like to learn the fundamentals of digital modulation.

Required credentials
Elementary knowledge of spectrum analyzers and analog modulations.

Training environment
Theoretical presentations, followed by a practical session.
Maximum of 3 people per station; station consisting of a vector signal generator and a vector signal analyzer.
Have your lunch in company of the trainer. Training material and measurement results provided.
