The aim of this book is to introduce the general area of Digital Signal Processing from a practical point of view with a working minimum of mathematics. The emphasis is placed on the practical applications of DSP: implementation issues, tricks and pitfalls. Intuitive explanations and appropriate examples are used to develop a fundamental understanding of DSP theory, laying a firm foundation for the reader to pursue the matter further. The reader will develop a clear understanding of DSP technology in a variety of fields from process control to communications.
- Covers the use of DSP in different engineering sectors, from communications to process control
- Ideal for a wide audience wanting to take advantage of the strong movement towards digital signal processing techniques in the engineering world
- Includes numerous practical exercises and diagrams covering many of the fundamental aspects of digital signal processing
