Signalbehandling - design och implementering
Signal Processing - Design and Implementation

ETIF10, 7,5 credits, G2 (First Cycle)

Valid for: 2016/17
Decided by: Education Board A
Date of Decision: 2016-04-05

General Information

Elective for: BME4, C4-ssr, D4-bg, D4-ssr, E4-ss, E4-bg, F4, F4-bg, F4-r, F4-ss, Pi4-ssr
Language of instruction: The course will be given in English on demand


The course provides solutions to problems in signal processing where design of filters, filter banks and fast algorithms are in demand. The course presents the fundamentals of wavelets and points to different applications where wavelet analysis is a powerful tool. The student should obtain sufficient insights on theory and application to independently formulate the mathematical problem, to solve it, and to implement the solution for processing of real signals.
