Professor  Mihai V. MICEA, lecturer 
Curricula  Fourth year undergraduate, Computer and Software Engineering 
Semester  1 
Course Structure  Credits: 4
Course classes: 14 x 2 hrs. Seminars: 0 Laboratory workshops: 14 x 2 hrs. Project sessions: 0 
Objectives  The course is a detailed presentation of the basic algorithms and techniques involved in digital signal processing. The theoretical aspects of digital signal processing are described in an intuitive manner, along with many examples and applications. A special section of the course describes the internal architecture, operating principles and application fields of the specialized family of processors  the digital signal processors. 
Keywords  Discrete time signals and systems, convolution, correlation, Z and Fourier transforms, digital filters, digital signal processors. 
Covered Topics 

Laboratories 

Evaluation  The final mark consists of a practical evaluation during the course classes and the laboratory workshops (32%), and a final term written examination: a theory module of one hour (23%) and an application module of two hours (45%).
