    This unit introduces the fundamental concepts of discrete-time systems for engineering. Digital signal processing (DSP) is concerned with the infrastructure of multimedia, and this unit will provide the tools for developing and implementing that infrastructure.

    Learning Outcomes

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

    1. Have a sound understanding of the fundamentals of DSP;

    2. Understand discrete time signals and sampling theory;

    3. Be able to design and implement finite and infinite impulse response filters;

    4. Be able to apply low-pass, bandpass, and high-pass filters to practical, real-world problems;

    5. Be able to convert sample rates and average signals;

    6. Demonstrate an understanding of the concepts of spectrum analysis of periodic and non-periodic signals;

    7. Demonstrate the ability to analyse signals using the Laplace transform, z-transform and the discrete Fourier transform / fast Fourier transform; and

    8. Be able to programmatically apply implementations of these concepts in Matlab.
