Eligibility:

For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.

Course specific prerequisites

A basic course in signals and systems. Knowledge of C-programming and Matlab is most useful!

Aim

The purpose of the course is to show how digital signal procesing (DSP) is used in practical applications. You will learn to use computer-based tools for signal processing in "batch-mode" (Matlab) as well as in real-time. The focus is on problem solving, and the theory is mostly summarized. After completing the course you should be able to choose and implement suitable algorithms for meeting given demands in, for example, a complex measurement situation.
You should also be able to see how the methods can be used in novel application areas.

Content

Short repetition of signals and systems. The Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT) and filter functions. Digital filter design. Decimation and interpolation. Digital filterbanks.
Short on adaptive (self-learning) filters. Fourier-based spectral analysis. Effects of finite wordlength. Real-time implementation. Short on Digital Signal Processors (DSP) and fixed-point arithmetics. Application in medical electronics (analysis of ECG and EEG), telecommunications (channel equalization and echo cancelation), interference suppression, oversampling A/D-converters etc.

Organisation

The course is largely given in project form. The theory is presented in a few lectures and supervised problem-solving sessions. A guest lecture illuminates applications and presents problems from industry. Most of the time is spent on your own work with hand-in problems, computer exercises and project tasks.

Literature

To be decided.

Examination

Hand-in problems and projects. Possibly a computer-based exam.
