"Simulink is a graphical tool provided by MathWorks to enable model-based design and simulation. This thesis consists of two papers which take advantage of Simulink features in order to model communication systems.
The first paper employs Simulink to create projects to supplement a purely lecture oriented course: Communication Systems I. The projects cover Linear systems, Analog modulation and Digital modulation concepts in a set of six projects. These projects have been designed based on Gagne's nine events of instruction to enhance their impact on students' learning process. The paper also outlines the advantages of this approach over the conventional programming or hardware based laboratories used in some universities.
The second paper describes enhancements made to an existing Bluetooth communication model in Simulink. The original model is corrected by changing the original BER meter and then modified by incorporating Rayleigh fading channels and multiple slaves. The effect of fading on the Bluetooth communication protocol is studied with ease"--Abstract, page iv.
