  • At EURECOM, R. Knopp teaches graduate-level courses in Digital Communication Theory and Signal Processing Technologies.
  • He also participates in continuing education programs for industry, on behalf of EURECOM, on specific topics of interest in state-of-the-art wireless communication systems.

My courses

  • DigiCom / Fall 2013 - Digital communications

    • This course covers the fundamentals for the analysis and design of physical layer digital communication systems.
    • It serves as the basic building block for understanding modern mathematical procedures that enable communication via different physical media (e.g. radio, twisted-pair wireline, coaxial cable, fiber-optical).
    • Both the deterministic and random characterizations of common transmit signal and noise processes are covered as well as optimal receivers and their performance using different digital signalling methods.

  • SigTech / Spring 2014 - Signal processing technologies

    • This course provides an overview of different enabling technologies for real-time signal processing applied to communication systems.
    • The basic implementation technology behind areas such as, wireless communication devices, audiovisual devices, media players, PC-based multimedia, soft modems (software radio), video gaming will be covered.
    • A hands-on approach is taken, with the aid of state-of-the-art laboratory equipment, to expose students to the real-time hardware and software aspects of modern signal processing architectures.
    • The topics covered span conversion technologies (A/D, D/A), bus architectures and data acquisition systems, embedded DSP processors, PC-based DSP architectures and implementations, real-time operating systems (RTOS) aspects and system-on-chip (SoC) architectures. Specially design laboratory sessions are supported by introductory lectures on the particular area under study.



  • In 2011 he received a Best Student Paper Award with his co-authors Rizwan Ghaffar, Umer Salim and Irfan Ghauri for the article "Mixed CSIT DL channel: gains with interference aware receivers" (European Wireless Conference 2011)
