Digital Communications Technologies (DKT)

The aim of the "Digital Communications Technologies" laboratory (DKT) is the practical application and further understanding of the theoretical fundamentals learned in courses. Our students also learn how to operate state-of-the-art measurement instruments and how to conduct, interpret and document experiments on their own.

All experiments are elaborately described in our experiment instruction manuals. We also provide the manufcaturer's instruction manuals and technical documentation for every measurement device.

Nowadays, transmission of data as well as signal transmission and processing is done almost exclusively digitally (PC, DVD, Blue-Ray, VoIP, digital television and radio etc.). The laboratory covers subject areas such as analog-to-digital conversion, line encoding, bit error rate determination, digital modulation methods (ASK, PSK, FSK, QAM, OFDM), building computer-simulated digital transmissions as well as source and channel encoding. To analyze aforementioned properties, we provide state-of-the-art measurement devices, including digital storage oscilloscopes, spectrum analyzers, network analyzers and high-performance computers.
