The unit teaches the theories and practices of digital signal processing, including sampling, digital spectra analysis, digital Fourier transforms, z-transforms, digital filters, with the emphasis on their applications, especially in audio and image signal processing, by using contemporary software and hardware techniques.

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of the unit, students will be able to:

1. Explain the fundamental theories of digital signal processing;

2. Design and implement finite and infinite impulse response filters;

3. Construct low-pass, band-pass, and high-pass filters to solve signal processing problems;

4. Apply the concepts of spectrum analysis to periodic and non-periodic signals;

5. Explain Laplace transform, z-transform and discrete Fourier transform and their application in signal analysis; and

6. Develop digital signal processing systems using contemporary software and hardware techniques.
