The introductory subject to the study of Digital Signal Processing. The main emphasis is focused on the interpretation and acquirement of the basic principals. Practical approaches and real examples from different areas (music, biomedical engineering, speech processing communication systems) are used. The program system MATLAB is used for the tasks solution, which offers comfortable and user friendly environment with graphical and sound outputs and allows digital signal processing in different formats.

Study targets:

The aim of the study is theoretical and practical knowledge in the fundamentals of digital signal processing.

Course outlines:

1. Introduction to digital signal processing
2. Sinusoidal signal generation
3. Signals in frequency domain, sinusoidal synthesis and analysis
4. Aliasing, sampling theorem, analysis of real signals in time domain
5. Simple first order digital filters, digital differentiators and integrators
6. Second-order digital filters - resonators
7. Audio application of digital filters, artificial reverberation, audio effects
8. Image processing using 1-d filters
9. DFT and FFT, windowing, , leakage, time and frequency resolution
10. User digital FIR and IIR filter realisation
11. Resampling systems
