Digital Signal Processing - Level III

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 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 III will continue the explorations started in Level II. It will cover all the topics in Level I and II with additional mathematics formalism. Examples worked out in MATLAB will be shown. Mathematical techniques used for antenna design will be explained, along with continuous time, discrete time, and discrete time/frequency Fourier processing. Several different approaches to Filter Design will be included at this Level. Hardware implementations will also be introduced. The examples used for illustration of the principles will be taken primarily from the fields of Radar and Sonar. Signal detection will be covered with more emphasis on the real-time algorithms and the statistical nature of the detection process including the concepts of false alarm rate calculation and reduction.

The Program
  • Signals and Systems
  • Basic Fourier Analysis
  • Sampling and A/D Conversion
