Circuits and Signal Processing

Bede Liu

This course focuses on analyzing signals (sound, voltage, communication transmissions, pressure, images, etc.) and the systems that act on them (circuits, physical echos, mechanical dynamics, modulation, etc.). We concentrate on the Fourier transform and linear-time invariant systems, providing a depth of tools for sampling, manipulating, preserving, and interpreting information signals. The course also has a weekly lab component which includes building a "Shazam" music identification system and controlling an inverted pendulum.

Sample reading list:
A.V. Oppenheim, A.S. Willsky, S.H. Nawab, Signals and Systems, 2nd ed.

Reading/Writing assignments:
Weekly labs include computing and simulation lab exercise using Matlab, weekly homework assignments. 5-40 pages of reading per week.

Mid Term Exam - 25%
Final Exam - 40%
Lab Reports - 15%
Problem set(s) - 20%
