Description
Introduction to the principles of signal processing, including discrete-time signals and systems, the z-transform, sampling of continuous-time signals, transform analysis of linear time-invariant systems, structures for discrete-time systems, the discrete Fourier transform, computation of the discrete Fourier transform, and filter design techniques. Computer Engineering 153, Electrical Engineering 153, and Electrical Engineering 250 are taught in conjunction. Students cannot receive credit for more than one of these courses.
Prerequisite(s): Electrical Engineering 103. Enrollment restricted to School of Engineering and Division of Physical and Biological Sciences majors or permission of instructor.
Class website: The full website will also hosted in http://ecommons.ucsc.edu
