Abstract

Many communication topics are difficult for undergraduate students to internalize, but demonstrations and laboratory experiences have been shown to help a great deal. This paper describes how we teach the concept of frequency shift keying by using a highly successful combination of theory, demonstrations, lab exercises, and real-time DSP experiences that incorporate MATLAB and the Texas Instruments C67x digital signal processing starter kit.
