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.
