Catalog Data ECEN 4532 (3). DSP Laboratory. Develops experience in code development, debugging, and testing of real-time digital signal processing algorithms using dedicated hardware. Applications include filtering, signal synthesis, audio special effects, and frequency domain techniques based on the Fast Fourier Transform.
(Meets with ECEN 5532.)
Credits and Design 3 credit hours: 2 hours of lecture, 2 hours of lab per week. Elective course. Note: Graduate students have extended project assignments.
Prerequisite(s) ECEN 3300, Linear Systems
Corequisite(s) ECEN 4632, Intro to Digital Filtering
Textbook None. On-line materials provided.
Course Objectives The course objectives are to gain a working knowledge of the design, implementation, and debugging of real time DSP algorithms written in assembly language for an industry-standard DSP microprocessor.
