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.

Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
All the assessments will need to adhere to a particular format as specified on the unit's Canvas site and submitted electronically via Canvas.
Detailed rubrics will be provided for each assessment.
Special assessment requirements
To obtain a particular grade in this unit, it is necessary that there are no outstanding submissions at the end of week 14. The unit convener reserves the right to question students orally on any of their submitted work.
In order to pass this unit, students need to:
1- Submit all three first assessment, research paper, and final assessment.
2- Achieve minimum 50% of combined weighted marks of all assessment items
3- Achieve Minimum 50% of the final assessment.
All assessment items will receive a numerical mark. The final grade will be determined as a weighted average of the individual assessment items.
To be awarded a particular grade in DSP, students must meet the overall requirements, individual requirements for each assessment item set out in the table below. All grades are conditional upon the following minimum requirements:
Minimum 50% of combined weighted marks of all assessment items
Minimum 65% of combined weighted marks of all assessment items
Minimum 75% of combined weighted marks of all assessment items
Minimum 85% of combined weighted marks of all assessment items
The unit convener reserves the right to question students orally on any of their submitted work.
Students have a responsibility to uphold University standards on ethical scholarship. Good scholarship involves building on the work of others and use of others' work must be acknowledged with proper attribution made. Cheating, plagiarism, and falsification of data are dishonest practices that contravene academic values. Refer to the University's Student Charter for more information.
To enhance understanding of academic integrity, all students are expected to complete the Academic Integrity Module (AIM) at least once during their course of study. You can access this module within UCLearn (Canvas) through the 'Academic Integrity and Avoiding Plagiarism' link in the Study Help site.
Use of Text-Matching Software
The University of Canberra uses text-matching software to help students and staff reduce plagiarism and improve understanding of academic integrity. The software matches submitted text in student assignments against material from various sources: the internet, published books and journals, and previously submitted student texts.
Expected Average Student Workload: * denotes an assessable item
- Lectures: 12 x 2h =24h
- Tutorials/Computer Labs 10x2h =20h
- Preparation (lectures, tutorials, computer labs, reading) 12 x 3h =36h
- * Mid-semester Assessment =15h
- * Research Paper =25h
- * Final Assessment =30h
Total 150 hours
To get the most out of unit, students are highly recommended to actively participate in the lectures as well as the tutorials.
Tutorial and Lab Attendance is compulsary and will count towards 5% of the total mark.
Required IT skills
Basic Programming Skills in Matlab and use of Arduino.
Students might consider purchasing refrence textbooks which can cost $100-$400, depending upon the condition of the book (new, used) and number of refrence books.
One of the refrence text books is freely available on Canvas.
