Digital Signal Processing Laboratory (868H1)

15 credits, Level 7 (Masters)

Spring teaching

The module will introduce you to programming digital signal processors to perform digital filtering of signals in one or two dimensions. You will learn to use the appropriate toolchain in order to code, compile, execute and debug their own software running on a modern ARM DSP core. They will implement FIR and IIR filters on one dimensional signals and frame based processing of two dimensional signals such as images.

Teaching and assessment

We’re currently reviewing teaching and assessment of our modules in light of the COVID-19 situation. We’ll publish the latest information as soon as possible.

Contact hours and workload

This module is approximately 150 hours of work. This breaks down into about 30 hours of contact time and about 120 hours of independent study. The University may make minor variations to the contact hours for operational reasons, including timetabling requirements.

This module is running in the academic year 2021/22. We also plan to offer it in future academic years. However, there may be changes to this module in response to COVID-19, or due to staff availability, student demand or updates to our curriculum. We’ll make sure to let our applicants know of material changes to modules at the earliest opportunity.

It may not be possible to take some module combinations due to timetabling constraints. The structure of some courses means that the modules you choose first may determine whether later modules are core or optional.
