Comprehensive, application-driven presentation of the technology, benefits and limitations of Digital Signal Processing with special emphasis on communications systems.

Modern communications systems offering voice, data, and multimedia services draw heavily on sophisticated signal processing. Rapid advances in microelectronics, computer architecture, and software tools have created opportunities to address these needs with cost-effective, high performance Digital Signal Processors.

This course introduces DSP technology in the context of system level concepts and considerations, and emphasizes specific functions that are ideally suited for DSP implementations. The course has been developed with all those in mind who want a simple-to-understand, practical, yet comprehensive introduction to the technology. While DSP technology and the information provided in this course are applicable to a wide variety of systems, communications systems , and digital wireless communications systems in particular, serve as the instructional vehicle.

About the Instructor

Bruce McNair is Distinguished Service Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Stevens Institute of Technology, Hoboken, NJ. He is also Founder and Chief Technology Officer of Novidesic Communications, LLC, a technology consulting company. Prior to starting Novidesic and joining the faculty at Stevens in 2002, he spent 24 years at AT&T Bell Laboratories (AT&T Labs - Research after the Lucent spin-off). His most recent work there was research of next generation (4G and beyond) wireless data communications systems, including high-speed, high-mobility wide area networks as well as range and speed extensions to 802.11(a & b) wireless LANs. Mr. McNair's prior activities at Bell Labs included computer, network and system security, development of encryption hardware, high-speed voice-band modems, and public data network protocols. Before joining Bell Labs, he spent seven years developing military communications systems for the US Army Electronics Command and ITT Defense Communications Division.

Mr. McNair received his B.E. and M.S. in Electrical Engineering from Stevens Institute of Technology.
