Division: Electrical and Information Technology
Course type: Third-cycle course
Teaching language: English
The course aims to give a thorough understanding in Discrete-Time Signal Processing. Increasing complexity, high requirements on performance in the form of throughput and low power consumption will increase the expectations from future designers. To have a solid base in this subject is one of the skills that are important for both circuit designers as well as system designers.
Knowledge and Understanding
For a passing grade the doctoral student must be able to describe simple and more advanced discrete-time systems
Competences and Skills
For a passing grade the doctoral student must
Judgement and Approach
For a passing grade the doctoral student must be able to sort out important information independently, from an extensive material, such as a textbook
Discrete time signals, the z-transform, In- output relationships, Sampling, Fourier analysis, transform analysis, DFT/FFT, FIR/IIR filters, Filter design techniques, Quantization, and more based on some 20 scientific papers, mainly journal papers.
Types of instruction: Seminars, exercises. Seminars given by participants
Examination formats: Written assignments, seminars given by participants.
Seminars based on the textbook material and seminars based on research papers, where the students will give seminars. At least 80% attendance on the seminars is demanded. The students will be offered a number of hand-in exercises to choose among. Certain flexibility is needed in the examination form depending on the number of students.
Rules for reexamination: By agreement with the examiner.
Grading scale: Failed, pass
Course coordinator: Peter Nilsson firstname.lastname@example.org Research students from different abstraction levels from high level systems down to circuit and system levels are welcome to the course
