2017 08 23   Information letter 1: Course information
    Welcome to the course TSKS01 Digital Communication!

The course information and some other information is now available at the course homepage: //www.commsys.isy.liu.se/en/student/kurser/TSKS01

All information about the course can be found there. Any additional information will be sent out by email and then posted on the bulletin board at the homepage. The course homepages and the mailing list are the means that I will use to communicate important information to the students.

The first lecture is on Friday, September 1, at 13:15. It is important that you show up at this lecture, because I need to know how many people that intends to take the course - in particular to plan the number of lab sessions that should be scheduled.

Important: We will use a new edition of the course compendium this year. It should be available at the LiU Service Center, Building A, at the day of the first lecture. The compendium has the date "August 2017" printed at the bottom of the front page. It is also possible to use the edition from 2016 (a few misprints have been corrected and some new tutorial problems have been added). However, you cannot use course material from earlier years, because the course content changed substantially in 2016.

See you next week!

2017 08 31   Information letter 2: Course compendium is ready
    I have been told that the course book and problem-solving book have been printed. They are available for purchase at the LiU Service Center, Building A, entrance 19C. The course book has compendium number A1671 and costs 214 SEK. The problem-solving book has compendium number A1672 and costs 81 SEK. The price covers the printing, there is no profit for the authors. The Service Center is open 9.15-15.15 from Monday to Friday.

On the course homepage you can find the preliminary lecture plan and which parts of the course book that will be covered. I recommend that you read these chapters and/or sections before each lecture and prepare questions. In this way, you will get the most out of the teaching sessions and save time in your studies.

Similarly, there is a list of tutorial problems that we recommend for each tutorial session. I recommend you to read the problem formulations in advance and see how far you can solve the problems. At the tutorial session, the teacher will solve some of the problems on the whiteboard and then support you in the solving of the remaining ones.

See you tomorrow!

2017 11 20   Information letter 4: Lab memo
    The laboratory exercises start on Friday this week. The lab memo is now available on the course homepage:


You need to read it carefully before the first lab session. Note that it is mandatory to attend the first and the last lab session. It is also recommended that you attend the other sessions, so that you can receive feedback from the teaching assistent on your solutions. In addition to the scheduled sessions, you should expect to spend additional time on solving the lab task and writing the report.

Good luck!
