High-Speed Digital signals – Transmission, Reception and Analysis

High speed digital systems require data transfer rates equal to or higher than 1GHz.
These rates, and the resulting system bandwidths, pose severe design challenges aimed to minimize the system-induced distortions that affect the binary signal integrity and, consequently, the ability of the decoding sytem to recover correctly the digital data.
These distortions can originate from both stochastic processes, such as AWGN and phase jitter, or from deterministic, such as signal-shaping effects, multi-path reflections, CW leakage effects etc.
The aim of this project is to study the various system-induced distortion mechanisms and to upgrade an existing, Matlab-based application (developed recently by a group of students in the HSDSL lab) and to allow its integration into a new HSDSL project aimed to train EE students in the areas DSP techniques and jitter effects in binary waveforms.
