Lecture "Advanced Digital Signal Processing"

Basic Information

Lecturers:   Gerhard Schmidt (lecture) and Eric Elzenheimer (exercise)
Room:   KS2/Geb.F - SR-I
Language:   English
Target group:   Students in electrical engineering and computer engineering
Prerequisites:   Basic Knowlegde about signals and systems

Students attending this lecture should be able to implement efficient and robust signal processing structures. Knowledge about moving from the analog to the digital domain and vice versa including the involved effects (and trap doors) should be acquired. Also differences (advantages and disadvantages) between time and frequency domain approaches should be learnt.

Topic overview:

  • Digital processing of continuous-time signals
  • Efficient FIR structures
  • DFT and FFT
  • Digital filters (FIR filters/IIR filters)
  • Multirate digital signal processing

Jugend Forscht

On November 24th, one of our DSS team members, Owe Wisch, took part in the "Jugend forscht Perspektivforum" at the CAU. Thirty young students from the "Jugend forscht" project came to Kiel and participated in three different workshops focusing on career paths in maritime climate protection. Owe Wisch from our chair lead one of the workshops and presented his research topics, beamforming ...
