RF and Communications Teaching Demos

Students sometimes have difficulty understanding communications topics such as QPSK and FM demodulation because the theory, advanced formulas, and the relation to practical applications are often disconnected. With access to real-world signals, communications courses can be more than just math, homework, and simulation. Through experiential learning using integrated hardware, software, and courseware, students can make firsthand connections between theory and implementation.
