- Learning Outcomes
- By the end of the module students are expected to be able to:
- Understand the consequences of the sampling theorem
- Convert between continuous-time and discrete-time signals by using sampling theorem
- Classify discrete-time signals and linear time-invariant systems using difference equations description
- Apply the Z-transform to discrete-time signals and systems
- Perform simple manipulations on Z-transforms, in particular find solutions to some simple systems given by their difference equations or their block diagrams
- Determine the stability of a linear time-invariant system based on its poles and zeros structure
- Design elementary infinite impulse response (IIR) and finite impulse response (FIR) filters
- Construct Matlab functions using the built-in DSP toolbox corresponding to FIR filter specifications
