We use daily equipments in which the signals are stored and treated digitally. From the basic signal processing used in CD-players to advanced processing used in MP3 coding of music, speech coding in GSM, digital video and image processing. The course gives the basic knowledge in digital signal processing and knowledge of signal properties in the time domain as well as in the frequency domain.

The course deals with time discrete signals and systems. Items such as the Fourier Transform, the Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT) and the z-transformed are treated in the course as well as some basic structures for implementation of digital filters. Also, system function and frequency functions are introduced as well as digital filters. Digital processing of analogue signals using A/D and D/A conversion is studied. In the laboratory work, practical applications of digital signal processing such as speech signals processing and biomedical signals processing are treated. Also, the course includes basic filter design using Matlab and digital signal processors (DSP).
