Building blocks of communication systems. Analog communication methods: Analog amplitude and phase/frequency modulation. Frequency division multiplexing. Sampling and quantization, Pulse tranmission methods: pulse-code modulation, differential pulse-code modulation and delta modulation. Time-division multiplexing. Digital modulation techniques: Digital amplitude and phase/frequency shift keying.
