Understanding Digital Signal Processing, Third Edition, is quite simply the best resource for engineers and other technical professionals who want to master and apply today’s latest DSP techniques. Richard G. Lyons has updated and expanded his best-selling second edition to reflect the newest technologies, building on the exceptionally readable coverage that made it the favorite of DSP professionals worldwide. He has also added hands-on problems to every chapter, giving students even more of the practical experience they need to succeed.
Comprehensive in scope and clear in approach, this book achieves the perfect balance between theory and practice, keeps math at a tolerable level, and makes DSP exceptionally accessible to beginners without ever oversimplifying it. Readers can thoroughly grasp the basics and quickly move on to more sophisticated techniques.
This edition adds extensive new coverage of FIR and IIR filter analysis techniques, digital differentiators, integrators, and matched filters. Lyons has significantly updated and expanded his discussions of multirate processing techniques, which are crucial to modern wireless and satellite communications. He also presents nearly twice as many DSP Tricks as in the second edition—including techniques even seasoned DSP professionals may have overlooked.
Coverage includesNew homework problems that deepen your understanding and help you apply what you’ve learned Practical, day-to-day DSP implementations and problem-solving throughout Useful new guidance on generalized digital networks, including discrete differentiators, integrators, and matched filters Clear descriptions of statistical measures of signals, variance reduction by averaging, and real-world signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) computation A significantly expanded chapter on sample rate conversion (multirate systems) and associated filtering techniques New guidance on implementing fast convolution, IIR filter scaling, and more Enhanced coverage of analyzing digital filter behavior and performance for diverse communications and biomedical applications Discrete sequences/systems, periodic sampling, DFT, FFT, finite/infinite impulse response filters, quadrature (I/Q) processing, discrete Hilbert transforms, binary number formats, and much more
The Complete DSP Guide for Businesspeople and Nontechnical Professionals
Digital signal processing (DSP) technology is everywhere–each time you use a smartphone, tablet, or computer; play an MP3; watch a digital TV or DVD; get GPS directions; play a video game; take a digital photo; or even have an MRI, DSP technology is at work.
Now, for the first time, The Essential Guide to Digital Signal Processing offers readers of all levels simple, plain-English explanations of digital and analog signals and modern DSP applications. Whether you sell technology, write about it, manage it, fix it, or invest in it, this is the book for you.
Using everyday examples and simple diagrams, two leading DSP consultants and instructors completely demystify signal processing. You’ll discover what digital signals are, how they’re generated, and how they’re changing your life.
You’ll learn all you need to know about digital signal collection, filtering, analysis, and more, and how DSP works in today’s most exciting devices and applications.
Coverage includesHow engineers understand and work with analog signal spectra and frequencies How digital signals are generated and used in modern electronic devices The surprising things that happen when analog signals are converted to digital form How (and why) engineers compute digital signal spectra with Fourier transforms What wavelets are and how they’re used everywhere, from medicine to the camera in your smartphone How digital filters are used in DSP applications Cutting-edge DSP applications, from automatic music-tuning software to medical EKG signal analysis A comprehensive glossary of signal processing terminology and acronyms
You’ll gain a clear, conceptual understanding of all key signal processing operations and vocabulary. That means you’ll understand much of the “magic” built into today’s newest devices, and you’ll be ready to succeed in virtually any nontechnical role that requires DSP knowledge.
