Details: Product Description DSP First and it's accompanying digital assets are the result of more than 20 years of work that originated from, and was guided by, the premise that signal processing is the best starting point for the study of electrical and computer engineering. The "DSP First" approach introduces the use of mathematics as the language for thinking about engineering problems, lays the groundwork for subsequent courses, and gives students hands-on experiences with MATLAB. KEY TOPICS: Covers basic DSP concepts, integrated laboratory projects–related to music, sound and image processing. Other topics include new MATLAB functions for basic DSP operations, Sinusoids, Spectrum Representation, Sampling and Aliasing, FIR Filters, Frequency Response of FIR Filters, z-Transforms, IIR Filters, and Spectrum Analysis. MARKET: Useful as a self-teaching tool for anyone eager to discover more about DSP applications, multi-media signals, and MATLAB. From the Back Cover This best-selling, hands-on, multimedia package provides an introduction to fundamental concepts, specifically discrete-time systems, for beginning engineering students. Created and written by the same well-respected authors, it has been adopted in over 100 institutions worldwide since publication. This class-tested learning package is also widely used as a self-teaching tool to discover more about USP applications, multimedia signals, and MATLAB(R) . Unique features such as visual learning demonstrations, MATLAB laboratories, and a bank of solved homework problems are just a few of the things that make this an essential learning tool for mastering fundamental concepts in today's electrical and computer engineering curricula. About the Author Dr. James H. McClellan received the B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from Louisiana State University in 1969 and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from Rice University in 1972 and 1973, respectively. During 1973-4 he was a member of the research staff at M.I.T.'s Lincoln Laboratory. He then became a professor in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department at M.I.T. In 1982, he joined Schlumberger Well Services where he worked on the application of 2-D spectral estimation to the processing of dispersive sonic waves, and the implementation of signal processing algorithms for dedicated high-speed array processors. He has been at Georgia Tech since 1987. Prof. McClellan is a Fellow of the IEEE and he received the ASSP Technical Achievement Award in 1987, and then the Signal Processing Society Award in 1996. Ronald W. Schafer is an electrical engineer notable for his contributions to digital signal processing. After receiving his Ph.D. degree at MIT in 1968, he joined the Acoustics Research Department at Bell Laboratories, where he did research on digital signal processing and digital speech coding. He came to the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1974, where he stayed until joining Hewlett Packard in March 2005. He has served as Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing and as Vice-President and President of the IEEE Signal Processing Society. He is a Life Fellow of the IEEE and a Fellow of the Acoustical Society of America. He has received the IEEE Region 3 Outstanding Engineer Award, the 1980 IEEE Emanuel R. Piore Award, the Distinguished Professor Award at the Georgia Institute of Technology, the 1992 IEEE Education Medal and the 2010 IEEE Jack S. Kilby Signal Processing Medal.
