Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions


Signals and systems in time and frequency domain, examples, discretization, filter and frequency transforms, compression, realization (signal processors), outlook to digital image processing

Learning Outcome

At the end of this module students are able to evaluate theoretical concepts and underlying algorithms of modern digital signal processing systems. In the exercise course, the students learn to apply these concepts to a concrete problem and to decide on a proper implementation.

Learning and Teaching Methods

The module consists of a lecture, an exercise and tasks for self-study. The contents of the lecture are conveyed in the lecture and through presentations. Students are encouraged to deal with the content of the topics through small tasks set in the course of the lectures, as well as by solving exercise sheets. The solution to the exercises is discussed in the exercise.

Module Exam

Description of exams and course work

The examination is carried out in the form of a 105-minute written exam. This is intended to demonstrate that modern methods of signal processing are mastered and suitable algorithms can be selected for a specific problem.
