EE 302 Introduction to Digital Signal Processing


3 cr.


EE 301.

Course Description

This is the continuation of EE 301 course and develops the students' ability to apply mathematical techniques to analyze discrete signals and systems. Students learn the fundamentals of sampling and the representation of discrete-time systems and modeling an analog-to-digital (A/D) converter. They also learn both ideal and approximate methods of reconstructing a signal from a sequence of samples, and learn z-transform, inverse z-transformation, discrete convolution, difference equations, discrete-time transfer functions, discrete Fourier transform (DFT), and its realization through the use of fast Fourier transform (FFT) algorithms. Students also learn to analyze and design filters such as Butterworth, Chebyshev analog filters, Infinite Impulse Response (IIR), and Finite-duration Impulse Response (FIR) digital filters. Throughout the semester, MATLAB, a computational software program, is used to emphasize and to help in understanding important concepts of the course as well as a tool for solving homework problems. The methods of assessing student learning in this course are homework assignments, quizzes, in class exams, and a final exam.
