The goal of the lab is to teach the participants selected topics of communications engineering practically by using Software Defined Radios (SDRs). For this purpose, the basics of the visual programming language LabVIEW are taught, with which the SDRs can be programmed. In this lab, the essential functional blocks that are used in standard communication systems are implemented in LabVIEW and executed on SDRs. The course includes experiments on modulation, synchronization, channel coding, channel estimation, multi-antenna configurations (MIMO), and security. For each experiment, there are preparatory assignments that have to be solved. At the end of an experiment, the students prepare a protocol in which the results are documented.
Communications Engineering 1, basic knowledge of the fundamentals of communications, experience with signals and systems, especially signal descriptions in the time and frequency domain.
By the end of the course, the students will be familiar with the basics of the LabVIEW language and will be able to use the language features and function blocks that are related to wireless communications in their own programs. They are able to use LabVIEW to control the SDRs, understand foreign programs, and write their own signal processing algorithms and programs. Furthermore, the students are able to handle the SDR hardware and to establish a connection to the control computer. By working on the obligatory preparatory tasks, the students have understood the theoretical basics of the above mentioned methods of communications engineering (modulation, synchronization, channel coding, channel estimation, multi-antenna configurations (MIMO), and security) and can evaluate their advantages and disadvantages. After carrying out the experiments, they are also able to apply these methods to similar scenarios and to integrate them into their own programs.

Before each class, the students work on the preparatory assignments. After a short introduction to the topic of the current experiment by the lecturer, using the blackboard and electronic presentation methods, the preparatory assignments are discussed. Afterwards the students carry out the experiments. The lecturer will provide individual supervision. The students prepare a protocol to document the findings after the class.
