Subject description


  • Enrolment in semester.

Content (Syllabus outline):

  • Characterization and classification of signals (continuous and discrete time, periodic and aperiodic, power and energy signals.
  • Spectral analysis of continuous-time signals: Fourier series, Fourier transformation.
  • LTI systems: impulse response, frequency response, system function poles and zeroes.
  • Relationship between continuous and discrete time signals: sampling, reconstruction, aliasing.
  • Discrete-time signals and LTI systems; spectral analysis of discrete time signals TDFT, discrete Fourier transformation (DFT). Impulse response sequence, frequency response, the z-transform, poles and zeros of DT system function.
  • Fundamental filter structures. Computer aided design of FIR and IIR filters.

Objectives and competences:

  • To introduce the fundamentals of signal processing, including the basics of continuous-time signal processing by linear circuits as well as digital processing of discrete signals.
  • The acquired knowledge in this field enable proper selection of computer aided tools for signal analysis and processing.

Intended learning outcomes:

  • Students should understand
  • the importance of frequency domain representation of various kinds of signals;
  • the importance of sampling theorem and its consequences;
  • various descriptions of LTI systems;
  • be able to design simple analogue and digital filters.

Learning and teaching methods:

  • Lectures,
  • tutorial,
  • homeworks.
