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

Saturday Morning Physics 2018

The DSS team was invited to participate in the last of the "Saturday Morning Physics" (SMP) events in 2018. On December 8th, a Saturday of course, Thorben Kaak, Gerhard Schmidt, and Owe Wisch gave a talk on underwater signal processing. Pupils from all around Schleswig-Holstein were quite interested, especially in the basics of SONAR systems.
