# Course Details

Introduces the student to Digital Signal Processing techniques. Topics include: continuous and discrete time systems, z-transforms and Fast Fourier Transforms. In addition, the course includes the design and implementation of digital filters. A filter design package such as MatLab is used. The filter designed by the student on the package will be tested on a TMS320C6211 DSK board.

## Prerequisite(s)

ELEX 2120 and ELEX 3305* and MATH 3431* (* may be taken concurrently)
