Digital Signal Processing (SPPU-ENTC-TE)

Updated on 2017/07/27 18:55

Digital signal processing (DSP) and Analog signal processing are subfields of signal processing. DSP means the use of digital processing, such as by computers, to perform a wide variety of signal processing operations. The signals processed in this manner are a sequence of numbers that represent samples of a continuous variable in a domain such as time, space, or frequency.
DSP applications include audio and speech signal processing, sonar, radar, sensor array processing and much more.

This course takes you through the discrete time signals and systems, their analysis and transforms, signal processing, sampling and aliasing and implementing filters.
