FYS-2006 Signal processing - 10 ECTS
Admission requirements are generell studiekompetanse + SIVING.
Local admission, application code 9391 - singular courses in engineering sciences. The course is also available to exchange students and Fulbright students.
Course contentThe 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 Z-domain is explained. The continuous-time 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.
Objectives of the course
Knowledge - The student can
- define the role of sinusoids in signals, e.g. for synthesizing music
