Digital Signal Processing

Digital Signal Processing (DSP) deals with the manipulation and shaping of signals whose values are only defined at discrete instants in time. Discrete signals are a natural consequence of measuring physical and process variables at discrete intervals in time. Continuous signals are often sampled by Analog-to-Digital Converters (A/D) for direct storage in a computer. Signals stored in a computer can be processed for many practical applications. Examples include speech synthesis, speech coding, digital audio and video, digital control of industrial processes, digital filtering for shaping signal characteristics including noise suppression, etc.

The DSP certificate program will introduce the participants to basic theoretical and practical concepts of DSP. Applications of digital filtering, speech processing, real-time processing, and FFT analysis will be discussed. Case studies of typical DSP applications will be presented. (12 credit hours)
