Digital Signal Processing - Level II


Stony Brook University, in partnership with Robert A Shade, Systems Engineering Consultant, is pleased to present this series of Digital Signal Processing (DSP) programs.

The enormous speed available in even the smallest computers has enabled evolution from analog to digital processing for many electronics products. In this workshop, the applications and advantages of Digital Signal Processing are discussed, the underlying mathematical principles are introduced and a number of relevant applications are presented. Attendance at this Digital Signal Processing Level II course is recommended as a way of introducing employees of those companies currently utilizing DSP to the technology, as well as for managers of those companies tasked with the introduction of DSP into their product development methodology.

Digital Signal Processing Level II will cover all the topics in Level I including the underlying mathematics and derivations of the processes. Many examples worked out in MATLAB will be shown. Filter design will not be included at this level. The examples used for illustration of the principles will be taken primarily from the fields of Radar and Sonar.

The Program
  • Signals and Systems
  • Basic Fourier Analysis
  • Sampling and A/D Conversion
  • Signal Synthesis
  • Antenna Design
  • Definition of FFTs and IFFTs
  • Principles of Time Domain vs. Frequency Domain Signal Processing
  • Filtering Concepts
  • Principles of Detection of Signals in Noise
  • Simple Applications including RF and Acoustic Signal Detection and Classification


Discrete – Time Signal Processing, 2nd Edition is a required text for Digital Signal Processing Level II.
