Digital Signal Pprocessing and Communication — A PC Based Laboratory

Conference paper


Laboratory experiments on the fundamentals of digital signal processing, filter design and digital communication are presented in this paper. They are three examples of a laboratory in which personal computers and special hardware designed for these computers are used. This laboratory is an update of an earlier laboratory on fundamentals of system theory, modulation techniques, and statistical communication theory. Because analogue technique was used, qualitative but no quantitative results were gained from these former experiments. To overcome this disadventage and to profit in this respect from digital technique, a redesign of the laboratory became necessary. Some design aspects of the old laboratory — maintenance of the laboratory equipment, easy access to the experiments, and the preparation of students at home — have influenced the new one.
