In this course, students derive algorithms from signal processing theory and map the algorithms to embedded software. They learn design flows from application theory to algorithm design to simulation in MATLAB and embedded software implementation in C. At various stages in the design flow, students explore and quantify design tradeoffs in signal quality vs. implementation for various algorithms. Applications include audio, image processing, biomedical instrumentation and communication systems.
The teaching assistants are Mr. Dan Jacobellis and Ms. Alice Liu. Lab sections will meet meet in person at the following times: Mondays 6:30pm-9:30pm (Jacobellis), Tuesdays 6:30pm-9:30pm (Liu) and Wednesdays 6:30pm-9:30pm (Liu) and Fridays 1:00pm-4:00pm (Jacobellis). Students work in teams of two in the lab. A maximum of 12 students are in each lab section. The TAs will also hold weekly office hours by Zoom on Wednesdays 4:30-6:00pm (Jacobellis), Thursdays 6:30pm-9:30pm (Liu) and Fridays 5:00pm-6:30pm (Jacobellis).
