ADVANCED SIGNAL PROCESSING

ELE4ASP

2018

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject, students explore advance digital signal processing (DSP) by analysing and solving problems in real world digital signal systems. Students first study the necessary analytical DSP skills including fast Fourier transform, discrete cosine transform, spectrum analysis and digital models of speech, and then apply these tools to audio, communication systems and image processing applications by analysing and implementing linear predictive codes, polyphase filters and finite and infinite impulse response filters. This subject provides excellent exposure of DSP to students wishing to pursue a career in fields involving digital audio, communication and image processing.

Graduate capabilities & intended learning outcomes

01. Apply the necessary analytical tools to analyse and design digital signal processes using the fast Fourier transform, discrete cosine transform, spectrum analysis and digital models of speech.

Activities:
Lectures 1-8 cover linear transformation, 9-16 discuss optimal linear prediction, 17-24 introduce the fundamentals of multirate DSP. Assignment questions and lab simulations are designed to reinforce the knowledge.
Related graduate capabilities and elements:

02. Write a clear, concise and well-structured lab/assignment report, focusing on problem solving techniques used to solve the real world problems.

Activities:
There are 4 programming projects which students can choose. To finish the project, students have to do some research, learn new programming skills such as real time DSP, GPU or GUI design. A project report is required.
