Lutz Lampe is a Professor with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at UBC. He received PhD degree in electrical engineering from the University of Erlangen, Germany, in 2002. His research interests are broadly in theory and application of wireless, power line, optical and underwater acoustic communications, including personal communications, machine-to-machine communications, and communications for smart grids.
Dr. Lampe has received a number of UBC and international awards for his scholarly contributions. He has been an Associate Editor for several international journals, General Chair of the Smart Grid Communications, International Power Line Communications and Ultra-Wideband Communications conferences, and he is the present Chair of the IEEE Communications Society Technical Committee on Power Line Communications. He is Co-Editor of the book Power Line Communications.
Signals and Communications
Review of Fourier analysis of signals; convolution and correlation; filtering, sampling, and multiplexing and modulation of signals; introduction to probability with applications in communications. Credit will only be given for one of EECE 359 or EECE 369, although EECE 359 is not equivalent to EECE 369. [3-0-2]
Signals and Systems
Complex numbers, LTI systems, convolution sum, discrete-time Fourier series and transforms, z-transform, sampling, introduction to filtering and modulation, feedback systems, stability. [3-0-2]
Wireless Communication Systems
Characterization of fading channels such as land-mobile, mobile-satellite, cellular and indoor; modem design and performance on fading channels, diversity techniques, carrier and bit synchronization; effects of non-linearities and interference on system performance, and remedies; software and hardware system designs; system architectures (FDMA, TDMA, CDMA); cellular systems: frequency allocation, spectrum efficiency, and channel assignment strategies; spread spectrum systems.
