**Course Title** : Digital Signal Processing
**Course Number**: ENEE 610 (graduate) CMPE 422 (undergraduate)
**Credits**: 3.00
**Description**: This is a first-year graduate course for communication and signal processing majors in electrical engineering (EE) that covers the fundamentals of digital signal processing (DSP). The goal of this course is to provide the first-year EE graduate student with the foundations and tools to understand, design and implement DSP systems, in both hardware and software. Students will learn computer-based DSP design and simulation software tools. The student also will acquire an understanding of DSP hardware basics and architecture. Topics covered include: (1) A/D-D/A conversion and quantization, number representations and finite wordlength effects; (2) FIR, IIR and lattice filter structures, block diagram and equivalent structures; (3) multi-rate DSP and filterbanks; (4) digital filter design methods and verification; (5) DSP hardware architecture; and (6) DSP simulation/ laboratory experiences.
**Prequisite (Graduate)** : Prerequisite: ENEE 601, ENEE 620 or their equivalent or consent of instructor.

Assignments

Assignment 1: Homework

Assigned: Thurdsay 2018/02
Due: Monday 2018/02/14 Beginning of class * From OS 2.45*,2.49*,2.51*,2.54,2.56,2.63*,2.65,2.67,2.77* * All problems must be submitted. * The problems with asterisk will be graded based on correctness and effort should be made to clearly identify and explain your solution. * The other problems will be graded for completeness (that you attempted to completely solve the problem and provide an answer). * You may collaborate with other students on this homework, but must identify them by name with your submission by writing their names on a coversheet.

Assignment 2: Homework

Due: Monday 2017/02/26 Beginning of class
From OS 3.21, 3.31, 3.36, 3.42, 3.46, 3.48, 5.7, 5.8
  • On this HW, though you may have discussion with collaberators and even compare final answers, you must write the entire final submitted solutions for the graded problems entirely on your own as you would an exam. Any form of direct copying or transcribing of another student's written solution is not allowed. Providing another student access to your written solution for the purpose of copying is not allowed. No handing off solutions -- Providing access of your written solution to another student beyond purpose required to aid simultaneous discussion is not allowed.
  • You must identify all collaberators by name with your submission by writing their names on a coversheet.

Assigned: Thurdsay 2018/04/09 Due: Monday 2018/04/16 * Computer Problem: * 1500 samples of a continuous signal from stationary process comprising two sinusoidal components is obtained by sampling at 8k samples/sec. The data is provided in the csv below. You are asked to compute the frequency of the two components using the dft (fft). * (a) Assume that you need to know the frequency of each to within the nearest 16 Hz. How many samples do you actually need? Use that many to find the frequency of the two sinusoids. Show the dft result as a stem plot and report the frequencies answers directly from the dft result. * (b) Assume that you need to know the frequency of each to within the nearest 10 Hz. How many samples do you actually need? Use that many to find the frequency of the two sinusoids. Show the dft result as a stem plot and report the frequencies answers directly from the dft result. * From OS: * 7.7 * 7.15 * 7.27 (use python/matlab for plotting and explain results with theory) [mystery_peaks.csv](./attachments/mystery_peaks.csv) ```python import pandas as pd #df = pd.read_csv('https://eclipse.umbc.edu/robucci/enee610/attachments/mystery_peaks.csv') # this may work for you df = pd.read_csv('mystery_peaks.csv') #for this version, you have to download the csv xx = df['time_series'].values tt = df['time_stamps'].values ```

Assignment 7: Homework

Assigned: Thurdsay 2018/04/18 Due: Monday 2018/04/25 * Q1: 7.4 * Q2: 7.13 * Q3: Using a bilinear transformation, design a digital Butterworth highpass filter with the following specifications: * passband edge at 50kHz * stopband edge at 25kHz * peak passband ripple of 0.5 dB * and a minimum stopband attenuation of 50dB. Provide the following: * (a) Provide the specification of the analog highpass filter * (b) Provide the specification of the analog lowpass filter * (c) Provide all relevant analytical transfer functions * (d) Plot the analog lowpass, analog highpass, digital filter frequency responses * Q4: Rework by hand the follow two problems: Hayes 9.39 Hayes 9.40 Plot the responses of the two resulting filters in matlab * Q5: Hayes 9.69 - Provide a more detailed explanation than answer given explaining why. Sketch an example analog filter frequency response and the two resulting digital filter frequency responses to help explain. You may use matlab to plot responses instead of producing hand sketches.
