Course description and aims

The instructor lectures on the digitization of signal and orthogonal transforms including the Discrete Fourier transform for connecting a time and frequency domains.
The instructor lectures on the coding method of time-series signal including examples.
In addition, the instructor lectures on the theory and design FIR of IIR filters based on linear discrete-time systems.

For the analysis or development of a machine or system adapting to the conditions of the surrounding environment or itself, knowledge on and skills for analyzing the measured information are essential.
The instructor in this course lectures on the signal processing technique that is enabled by digitization.
As its first step, this course facilitates students' knowledge and skills about measurement and analysis of the phenomenon.

Student learning outcomes

At the end of this course, students will be able to:
1) Understand the concept of digitization of time series signal
2) Understand the processing technique applied to digital signal such as filtering and Fourier transform
3) Gain the skill to apply the method listed above
The processing is understood to be applied to the digitization of concepts and digitized signals relating to one-dimensional signals, and a target to be able to acquire practiced technology.


Quantization, discretization, digitization, discrete Fourier transform, coding, linear discrete-time system theory, filter

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

Lectures and practice exercises will be given.
