Summary: For junior-level courses in Continuous-Time and Discrete-Time Systems and Signals, and Using MATLAB in Systems and Signals, in electrical, computer, and telecommunications engineering technology programs. Students must be comfortable with calculus.
This text provides a comprehensive review of the foundations of continuous-time systems, and introduces, with equal emphasis, the "new circuit theory" of discrete-time systems. It looks at the concepts ...show more and analysis tools associated with signal spectra -- focusing on periodic signals and the Discrete Fourier Transform, and makes students aware of the capabilities of MATLAB. Topics include analysis techniques, frequency response, standard filters, spectral analysis, discrete-time signals and systems, IRR and FIR filter designs, and sampling strategies. ...show less
