Digital Signal Processing

Course Description

This course applies digital communication principles to the analysis and design of signal processing systems. Students will learn signal filtering using mathematical models of continuous-time and discrete-time signals and linear systems. MATLAB software will be used to analyze and simulate a variety of communication systems.

Learning Outcomes

  • Analyze analog and digital signal processing technologies.
  • Apply analog and digital principles in communication systems.
  • Analyze both discrete and non-discrete data for signals using MATLAB.
  • Evaluate essential properties of different transforms methods.
  • Compute signal power and energy in time and frequency domain.
