Education Aims: To introduce the principles, major algorithms and implementation possibilities of digital signal processing at postgraduate level.
By the end of the module students should be able to:
- have a knowledge and understanding of appropriate DSP technologies for telecommunications, measurements and multimedia applications;
- design and/or apply procedures for accurate and fast transformations of signals between their different domains;
- analyse and/or design constant coefficient and adaptive digital filters;
- apply appropriate digital signal processing techniques to actual data.
