Digital Signal Processing

Digital Signal Processing is the branch of engineering that, in the space of just a few decades, has enabled unprecedented levels of interpersonal communication and of on-demand entertainment. By reworking the principles of electronics, telecommunication and computer science into a unifying paradigm, DSP is a the heart of the digital revolution that brought us CDs, DVDs, MP3 players, mobile phones and countless other devices. The goal, for students of this course, will be to learn the fundamentals of Digital Signal Processing from the ground up. Starting from the basic definition of a discrete-time signal, we will work our way through Fourier analysis, filter design, sampling, interpolation and quantization to build a DSP toolset complete enough to analyze a practical communication system in detail. Hands-on examples and demonstration will be routinely used to close the gap between theory and practice. To make the best of this class, it is recommended that you are proficient in basic calculus and linear algebra; several programming examples will be provided in the form of Python notebooks but you can use your favorite programming language to test the algorithms described in the course.

digital signal processing in 13 reviews

This is a fantastic course -- thank you to Professors Prandoni and Vetterli for providing such a high quality course on digital signal processing at no cost.

It really builds your fundamental understanding of Digital Signal Processing As the textbook from which the material is taken states, "the level of mathematical abstraction is probably higher than in several other texts on signal processing".

Especially in the tests, where the lectures alone are not always providing enough information.I should also mention that if you work, have family and other private activities, the course is quite demanding, mainly due to the time and volume per week.Overall it is an excellent course, which is definitely worth the effort if you want to learn digital signal processing in a comprehensible way!

Great in every aspect, can't wait for Advanced Digital Signal Processing class from EPFL!

Unclear lectures too brief to learn Excellent teaching of digital signal processing theory and techniques.

Good one The content of this course is really useful and contains the key points of digital signal processing.

Its is very helpful for me to study and understand this course Excellent course with fantastic and passionate teachers A mathematical and, to a lesser extent, a programming and standards (ITU) perspective of Digital Signal Processing.

more advanced in 4 reviews

I'm so glad I persisted because this subject is foundational to more advanced studies and has provided a view into our digital age that I could not find anywhere else.

If you get through the course, you will have a preliminary handling of some of the fundamental topics in DSP and hopefully be ready for a more advanced course.

I was very happy with the course, and felt that it prepared me well to go on to more advanced studies.

It will initiate you for more advanced levels of signal processing.

for many years in 3 reviews

I have been out of collage for many years and needed a refresher.

I was familiar with the topic NOT as a DSP professional but as a circuit designer for many years.

high level in 3 reviews

it is really great approach to understanding DSP and linked it to practicing and how to write code This is a fantastic course that covered the high level general concepts very well, and got deep into the theory and mathematics behind DSP.

The math gets to a pretty high level after a few sections, but it still seems manageable to understand.

will definitely in 3 reviews

If you can complete all the homework, you will definitely be able to ramp up the DSP world.

More examples or practice problems will definitely help.

homework problems in 2 reviews

The homework problems were oriented directly toward the video lectures, and were sometimes enjoyably challenging and difficult.

This gave the course and edge of difficulty I enjoyed, but I can see that some people might find the homework problems unpalatable, especially because one's grade on the course comes from the degree to which the problems are solved successfully.

The homework problems are aptly challenging too.
