EE4000 - Signal Processing 3

Credit points: 3
Year: 2012
Student Contribution Band: Band 2
Administered by: School of Engineering

Software and Theory: The sampling and processing of signals in a digital environment, including effects of sampling, aliasing, time domain to frequency domain transforms, convolution and correlation of sequences, window and filter specification, specification and design of IIR and FIR filters.Hardware: Analogue to digital and digital to analogue converters, direct digital synthesis. Digital down conversion, decimation and interpolation. Digital signal processing engines.

Learning Outcomes

  • ability to specify and select components required for a DSP based radio receiver;
  • ability to write specification and using these to design digital FIR and IIR filters;
  • to understand the characteristics of sampled signals and mechanisms for sampling;
  • to understand the principles, application and interpretation of Convolution and Correlation (in terms of digital signal processing);
  • to understand the principles, application and interpretation of Discrete and Fast Fourier Transforms;
  • to understand the principles, application and interpretation of windowing techniques, the Z-transform and Bilinear Z-transform;
  • to understand the properties and limitations of DSP hardware.
