Signal Processing (APTE7615)

Level: 
7
Credits: 
15 (0.125 EFTS)
Compulsory: 
No
Aim: 
To introduce students to aspects of analogue signal processing, in particular filtering. The underlying principles are detailed and relevant calculations performed.
Pre-requisites / Co-requisites: 
Students must be admitted to the Bachelor of Applied Technology programme to enrol in this course. Pre-requisite: APTE6611.
Topics include: 

* Mathematical tools and CAD, * Signals * Circuit analysis in s-plane, * Filter theory and families, Active and passive filters, Filter technologies, Filter applications
* Mathematical tools are applied to analogue signals,Range may include
Power series, Laplace and Fourier transforms, DFT and FFT * Signal types are recognised,Range may include
random, deterministic, periodic, quasi-periodic, aperiodic, transient
* Circuit analysis on the s-plane is applied,Range may include
Complex frequency variable s and the s-plane, Laplace and Inverse-Laplace transforms, impulse response, step response, pole-zero diagrams
* Filter theory is explained,Range may include
Low-pass, high-pass, band-pass, band-stop, all-pass * Filter families are defined,Range may include
Butterworth, Chebyshev (type I & II), Elliptic, Bessel
* Active filters are designed,Range may include
Second-order sections, higher orders, universal filter
* Passive filters are design,Range may include
Second-order sections, higher orders, discrete and distributive circuits
* Filter technologies are compared,Range may include
Alternative active filters (active-R, NIC/gyrator types), switch-capacitor, crystal, ceramic resonator, SAW, transmission line stubs, stripline and microstrip
* Filters are applied to real world problems,Range may include
Audio, equalising, instrumentation and transducer signal conditioning, medical, anti-aliasing/reconstruction filters, control systems, PLLs, RF applications (front-ends, IF and video)
