  • Student can reason about sampling and reconstruction.
  • Student can reason about properties of discrete signals and systems, like linearity, time invariance, causality and stability.
  • Student can reason about non uniqueness of discrete frequencies and aliasing and how it can be avoided.
  • Student can solve linear difference equations using a general technique involving convolution and a concise more limited technique, using the transfer function of a discrete system.
  • Student understands the frequency perspective given by the Discrete Time Fourier Transform and its properties.
  • Student understands the frequency perspective given by the Discrete Fourier Transform and its properties.
  • Student understands and can use the Fast Fourier Transform and its properties. Student understands and can use the z transform and its properties, in particular for stability and to solve linear difference equations.
  • Student can design an IIR filter using the bilinear transform.
  • Student can design an FIR filter using the window method.
  • Student knows the importance of linear phase filters and effect of windowing in the frequency domain.
  • Students can down- and upsample a signal.
  • Student can investigate the spectral content (for example the SNR) from finite measurements.
  • Student is introduced to a selection of 2D DSP topics representing classical and modern approaches. This topic is optional and is excluded from the exam.
This course presents a wide range of introductionary topics in the field of digital signal processing, both theoretical and practical. 

Tests consists of one written DSP test and 4 obligatory pass/fail lab sessions and one bonus lab session. There is one written DSP resit and a single opportunity to repair failed DSP labs. If 4 obligatory labs have been passed final grade = DSP Grade, otherwise 1. If final grade >=6 and bonus lab session has been passed, depending on the quality of all lab sessions, a bonus between 0 and 1 can be added to the final grade.

NB. If you have to follow the old 3EC version of DSP, please contact the module coordinator as soon as possible to discuss a specific arrangement. In this 5EC version of DSP, topics have been removed and added with respect to the 3EC version. You cannot take the 5EC version as a replacement of the 3EC version.
