Digital signal processing (DSP) is the method of processing signals and data in order to enhance, modify, or analyze those signals to determine specific information content. It involves the processing of real-world signals that are converted to, and represented by, sequences of numbers. These signals are then processed using mathematical techniques, in order to extract certain information from the signal, or to transform the signal in some preferably beneficial way.
The term ‘digital’ in DSP requires processing using discrete signals to represent the data in the form of numbers that can be easily manipulated. In other words, the signal is represented ...
