Course objectives
To introduce the fundamentals of digital signal processing and related applications. This course will cover linear system analysis, z-transform, discrete Fourier transform (DFT) and its applications, FFT algorithms, digital filter (FIR and IIR) design and multi-rate signal processing.
  • 1) An Introduction to digital signal processing (DSP), signals and their types
  • 2) Analog to Digital Converter (ADC) and Digital to Analog Converter (DAC)
  • 3) Amplitude quantization errors for rounding and truncation, statistical parameters of the quantization errors
  • 4) Principal characteristics of a signal, mean values, power, energy, autocorrelation, cross-correlation
  • 5) Spectrum of a signal, time sampling and amplitude quantization of a signal
  • 6) Digital filters, digital filters with finite impulse response (FIR) and infinite impulse response (IIR)
  • 7) Discrete Fourier Transform - DFT, Fast Fourier Transform - FFT, Parametric and Nonparametric Spectral Estimation in Use
  • 8) Direct Frequency Synthesis - DDS
  • 9) RF telemetric modules for data transmission
  • 10) Software Defined Radio principles
  • 11) Radio Frequency Identification RFID principles
  • 12) Radar principles, radar signal processing
  • 13) Using DSP in audio and telemetric application
  • 14) Introduction of the MATLAB Signal Processing Toolbox

Teaching methods
During the semester, students are required to do tasks involving the use of Matlab software package. The course concludes with a final test.
Assessment methods
Final examination consists of 3 parts:
1) defence of the project - implementation of the design from laboratory lessons and discussion about protocol,
2) written test - logical algebra, design of the digital circuits and analysis of the digital circuits,
3) oral exam - teoretical tools for design of the digital circuits.
