Virtual Design of an Audio Lifelogging System: Tools for IoT Systems

Morgan & Claypool Publishers
Free sample

The availability of inexpensive, custom, highly integrated circuits is enabling some very powerful systems that bring together sensors, smart phones, wearables, cloud computing, and other technologies. To design these types of complex systems we are advocating a top-down simulation methodology to identify problems early. This approach enables software development to start prior to expensive chip and hardware development. We call the overall approach virtual design. This book explains why simulation has become important for chip design and provides an introduction to some of the simulation methods used. The audio lifelogging research project demonstrates the virtual design process in practice.

The goals of this book are to:

  • explain how silicon design has become more closely involved with system design;
  • show how virtual design enables top down design;
  • explain the utility of simulation at different abstraction levels;
  • show how open source simulation software was used in audio lifelogging.

The target audience for this book are faculty, engineers, and students who are interested in developing digital devices for Internet of Things (IoT) types of products.

About the author

Brian Mears has a Ph.D. from City University, London. He worked in the computer industry in the U.K., at CERN in Geneva, at Bell Labs designing integrated circuits for audio compression, and at Intel Corporation for 29 years where he was a silicon architect and manager for embedded 32-bit microcontrollers, multi-core digital signal processors, and smartphone SoCs. His experience with complex SoC chip design led him to employ modeling and simulation techniques for silicon architecture design and software development. Retired from Intel Corporation he is currently an adjunct faculty member at Arizona State University researching design techniques and tools for architecture design.

Mohit Shah received his Ph.D. from Arizona State University in 2015. He co-founded Genesis Artificial Intelligence, which specializes in advanced system and application design. He received his B.Tech from Nirma University, India in 2008. His research interests lie in speech processing and analysis methods, covering both DSP and machine-learning related aspects. He has authored several publications in these areas. His prior work in industry included research internships at Intel and Palo Alto Research Center (Xerox PARC) in 2012 and 2013, respectively.

Richard G. Lyons
Amazon.com’s Top-Selling DSP Book for Seven Straight Years—Now Fully Updated!

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 includes

New 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
