Digital Communication Systems
Some Physical Layer Aspects of Digital Communications
The past two decades have witnessed remarkable progress in communication technologies, and one of the main drivers for this progress has been the need to achieve higher data rates. Researchers believe that this trend will continue into the future and are therefore directing their research in the area of 5G communication systems . Although technology standards continue to evolve, the fundamental concepts of communication systems remain unchanged. Keeping this in mind, some of the key physical layer concepts of digital communication systems are presented in this article.
