2 Copyright 2011 Saeed M. Khan as to this presentation. 2 Discussion Points Motivation A Basic Communication System A Wireless Communication System Cellular/Personal Communication Service (PCS) Summary

3 Motivation Personal Interest in an exciting growth industry (cellular/PCS) Careers in this industry are for many disciplines however electronics majors occupies a special place--- Printed circuit board (PCB) design Programming hardware (microprocessors, programmable devices, memory) Radio frequency electronics Copyright 2011 Saeed M. Khan as to this presentation. 3

4 Motivation(Growth and Investment 2011) Results of the survey also showed 70% of the companies, technology and non-technology businesses included, are currently leveraging or are planning to leverage mobile applications for their business, and many companies are planning major internal investments in new technologies including new laptops, mobile devices, mobile applications, and custom software.

5 Motivation (some speculation about the future): Continued convergence of technologies and applications Explosive innovation that take advantage of 3G and 4G technologies SOME CURRENT DAY APPLICATIONS WITH 3G CONTACTS, TASKS, CALENDER CALCULATORS, CAMERAS INTERNET Play games TEXT TV GPS MP3 Copyright 2011 Saeed M. Khan as to this presentation. 5

6 6 A Basic Communication System SourceTransmitterReceiverDestination Channel Source of information e.g. voice, video, data, etc. Generally takes information converts to a signal that can be transmitted through the channel. Wired, wireless, Fiber Optic Converts electrical signal back to information. Receiver of information e.g. voice, video, data, etc.

7 Copyright 2011 Saeed M. Khan as to this presentation. 7 A Wireless Communication System SourceTransmitterReceiverDestination Channel Transmits information through antennas after modulation (e.g. AM, FM, CDMA, etc.) Wireless (air, free-space) Receives signal and demodulates into information
