Entry requirements

In order to meet the general entry reguirements for first cycle studies you must have successfully completed upper secondary education and documented skills in English language and Courses of at least 60 credits at first cycle including the following knowledge/courses: Mathematics (corrresponding to M0031M), linear analysis (M0018M) and basic signal analysis (S0001E). Alternative: Alternative to completed courses can be corresponding knowledge acquired through work within the IT or electronics sector.

Course Aim
After completion of the course, the students shall have knowledge and understanding of
  • The architecture of digital signal processors (DSPs)
  • The effect on linear and time invariant systems as a consequence of finite bit depth in the DSP architecture (e.g. quantization of filter coefficients), and methods for mitigating these effects
  • Fundamentals of filter design.

At the end of the course, the student should be able to:
  • Implement digital processing algorithms on a DSP processor
  • Debug and analyze the system’s behavior
  • Verify algorithm functionality.
  • Present and demonstrate the results orally and in written reports.

The students should also be able to judge
  • If a specific task is possible to implement on a specific system given real-time and memory constraints.

Basics of sampling, real-time hardware architecture, digital filter structures, quantization, real-time applications and use of development tools.

Lectures, laboratory exercises and problem solving sessions.

Graded laboratory exercises and graded final project report with oral presentation.
