The course is administrated by

Institutt for fysikk og teknologi

Type of course

The course is available as a singular course. The course is also available to exchange students and Fulbright students.

Course overlap

FYS-260 Signal analysis (introduction) 9 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 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.
