EE3001 - Signal Processing 2

Credit points: 3
Year: 2014
Student Contribution Band: Band 2
Administered by: School of Engineering (pre 2015)

Wave propagation. Transmission lines: characteristic and input impedance, lossless, lossy and distortionless lines. Smith Chart, impedance matching. Introduction to filter networks, practical frequency responses, terminations, frequency and impedance scaling and transformation of low-pass types to high-pass, band-pass or band-stop types. Butterworth, Chebyshev, Cauer-Chebyshev and Bessel filter types. Passive and active filters including ladder structures, cascaded biquad sections, active ladder simulation and switched capacitor filters. RF filters: coupled resonator LC, helical, cavity, dielectric and ceramic filters. Phase locked loops and their applications. Frequency synthesis.

Learning Outcomes

  • ability to analyse and design active filters and switched capacitor filters;
  • ability to analyse and design phase locked loops;
  • ability to analyse and design practical low pass filters incorporating frequency and impedance scaling and using transformation to other filter types;
  • to understand the principles of wave propagation and operation of transmission lines. Learn matching and analysis techniques;
  • to understand types and basic properties of RF filters.
