DESCRIPTION - summary of the module content
AIMS - intentions of the module
To introduce the fundamental principles of digital signal processing, from both theoretical and practical viewpoints. To design digital signal processing systems for a range of important application areas. To develop experimental digital signal processing applications using XiLinx FPGA devices
INTENDED LEARNING OUTCOMES (ILOs) (see assessment section below for how ILOs will be assessed)
Note: List A comprises core outcomes that will be covered fully in lectures and must be achieved by all students to meet the minimum university requirement for progression. List B comprises outcomes that are EITHER more difficult to achieve OR are to be achieved by private study (or both). All outcomes will be assessed, and coverage of List B outcomes is essential for both BEng and MEng students. A: Threshold Level Review of typical applications of DSP Discrete-Time Signals - discrete impulse, step, ramp and sinusoids Discrete-time system blocks - add, multiply, delay Sampling - Nyquist's theory, aliasing and anti-aliasing filters Discrete-time, linear, time-invariant (DTLTI) systems DTLTI input-output relationships - the finite difference equation The z Transform and its relationship to the Laplace transform Transfer functions in the z-domain Signals in the z- domain Relationship between the z-Transform and the DFT The Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) and the DFT Design of non-recursive digital filters - moving average filters, linear phase FIR filters, Fourier design method and windowing Design of recursive digital filters - designs based on z-plane poles and zeros, designs based on analogue filters, the bilinear transformation Filter design using MATLAB Practical filter implementation issues Practical DSP hardware implementation using XiLinx FPGA devices B: Good to Excellent Interpolation, upsampling and downsampling Discrete time convolution and correlation Understanding z-plane pole-zero diagrams FFT signal processing, The frequency sampling method Impulse invariant method Low-pass, high-pass and band-pass filter transformations
