Notes on Digital Signal Processing: Practical Recipes for Design, Analysis and Implementation

Book Description

The Most Complete, Modern, and Useful Collection of DSP Recipes: More Than 50 Practical Solutions and More than 30 Summaries of Pertinent Mathematical Concepts for Working Engineers

Notes on Digital Signal Processing is a comprehensive, easy-to-use collection of step-by-step procedures for designing and implementing modern DSP solutions. Leading DSP expert and IEEE Signal Processing Magazine associate editor C. Britton Rorabaugh goes far beyond the basic procedures found in other books while providing the supporting explanations and mathematical materials needed for a deeper understanding.

Rorabaugh covers the full spectrum of challenges working engineers are likely to encounter and delves into crucial DSP nuances discussed nowhere else. Readers will find valuable, tested recipes for working with multiple sampling techniques; Fourier analysis and fast Fourier transforms; window functions; classical spectrum analysis; FIR and IIR filter design; analog prototype filters; z-transform analysis; multirate and statistical signal processing; bandpass and quadrature techniques; and much more.

Notes on Digital Signal Processing begins with mapping diagrams that illuminate the relationships between all topics covered in the book. Many recipes include examples demonstrating actual applications, and most sections rely on widely used MATLAB tools.

  • DSP fundamentals: ideal, natural, and instantaneous sampling; delta functions; physical signal reconstruction; and more

  • Fourier Analysis: Fourier series and transforms; discrete-time and discrete Fourier transforms; signal truncation; DFT leakage and resolution
