English

 
Timing 

Autumn, period 2

 
Learning outcomes 

1. Student can explain the challenges of signal processing hardware, software, and design methodologies.

2. Student is able to transform a digital filter designed with floating point arithmetic into a fixed point precision implementation, optimizing the word lengths to achieve the performance specifications.

3. Student is able to explain the most important algorithm implementation structures and can identify their usage contexts.

4. Student has rudimentary practical skills in modeling, designing, and judging finite word length signal processing algorithms with Matlab and Simulink software tools.

 
Contents 

Binary and floating point arithmetic, DSP programming models and co-design, digital signal processors, algorithms and implementations, including CORDIC, transforms (FFT and DCT), multi-rate signal processing, polyphase filters, filter banks, adaptive algorithms and applications. The software environments of the course are Matlab with the Fixed Point Toolbox extension and Simulink with the DSP Blockset extension.

 
Mode of delivery 

Lectures, independent work, group work.

 
Learning activities and teaching methods 

The course consists of lectures (30 h) and design exercises (6-12 h). the rest as independent work (33h).

 
Target group
