FYS2006 Signal processing  10 stp
Course contents
The course outlines the fundamental importance of sinusoids, in the form of complex exponential functions, as building blocks of signals, and provides an introduction to frequency (spectrum) analysis. Sampling and aliasing is covered, and the processing of discrete signals using FIR and IIR filters both in the time (impulse response), frequency (system function) and Zdomain is explained. The continuoustime Fourier transform is introduced, with applications in amplitude modulation and sampling, leading to the definition of the discrete Fourier transforms (DFT and FFT). Exercises are emphasized. Practical signal processing using programming is also emphasized, hence basic programming skills are advantageous.Objective of the course
Knowledge  The student can
 define the role of sinusoids in signals, e.g. for synthesizing music
 describe the process of sampling and discretization of signals
 define properties of different systems for processing signals
 explain the complementary properties of time and frequency analysis
 understand the Fourier transform of signals and its use
Skills  The student can
 determine the correct sampling frequency for signal discretization
 implement signal processing solutions in a programming language  process discrete signals using FIR and IIR systems
 design filters for noise removal
 analyze and design processing systems both in terms of time and frequency
 use the Fouriertransform of a signal for frequency analysis and processing
General expertise  The student can
 appreciate the importance of signal processing in a society with signals everywhere
 work with signal processing for data analysis
 program scripts and functions
Assessment
Portfolio assessment of a takehome examination counting about 25 % and a final 4 hour written examination counting about 75 %. All components in the portfolio are assessed as a whole and one combined grade is given. Assessment scale: Letter grades AF.
Resit examination (section 22): Students having failed the last ordinary examination are offered a resit examination early in the following semester, if the course is compulsory in their study programme, otherwise given that an examination is already being arranged. 4 hour written examination counting 100 %.
Postponed examination (sections 17 and 21): Students with valid grounds for absence will be offered a postponed examination. Postponed takehome examination is arranged during the semester if possible, otherwise early in the following semester. Postponed written examination is held early in the following semester.
See indicated sections in Regulations for examinations at the UiT The arctic university of Norway for more information.
Coursework requirements: Access to the final examination requires submission of takehome examination.
Date for examination
Written test 04.12.2017The date for the exam can be changed. The final date will be announced in the StudentWeb early in May and early in November.
