## Instructor

Prof. Robert C. Maher

Office: 610 Cobleigh Hall (northeast corner of 6th floor, inside ECE main office) Office:  994-7759Mobile:  599-5830 [email protected] /rmaher/eele477 Monday and Tuesday: 11AM-noon, or other times by appointment.Drop-in questions at other times are always OK if my office door is open.

## Textbooks and Materials

1.  DSP First: A Multimedia Approach, McClellan, Schafer, and Yoder, Prentice-Hall, 1998.  Please put your name in your textbook in case the book is misplaced.

2. The textbook contains a CDROM that contains labs 1-10 that we will be using in the course.  It is expected that you will print out and read these labs before coming to the laboratory.

## Class Objectives

To produce graduates who understand how to analyze and manipulate digital signals and have the fundamental Matlab programming knowledge to do so.

## Course Outcomes

At the conclusion of EELE 477, students will be able to:

• Describe the Sampling Theorem and how this relates to Aliasing and Folding.
• Determine if a system is a Linear Time-Invariant (LTI) System.
• Take the Z-transform of a LTI system
• Determine the frequency response of FIR and IIR filters.
• Understand the relationship between poles, zeros, and stability.
• Determine the spectrum of a signal using the DFT, FFT, and spectrogram.
• Design, analyze, and implement digital filters in Matlab.
• Explain the typical features of a digital signal processing chip.

Homework: Lab Reports: 10% → Homework and/or D2L quizzes will be required periodically.  Homework is due on the due date at the BEGINNING of class.  No late homework will be accepted. 25% → Lab reports are due no later than the BEGINNING of the next week's lab session, unless otherwise announced.  No late lab reports will be accepted. 20% → Written in-class exam given in February. 20% → Written in-class exam given early in April. 25% → The cumulative final exam is: THURSDAY, May 7, 2015 (6-7:50PM) 100%

Grade guarantee:  point percentage grade ranges will not be higher, but may be lower, than indicated by the following scale:

A range  = 90-100%
B range = 80-89%
C range = 70-79%
D range = 60-69%
F = 59% or less

## Policies

• A course grade of F will be given if you do not attend both midterm exams and the final exam, regardless of the accumulated point total.

• Department policy requires that you receive a passing lab grade to pass this course.

• You are responsible for all material covered in class and in the textbook reading assignments.
• You are expected to keep a clean lab area and return items to their proper place. Equipment is expensive and is provided for your learning experience. Please conduct yourselves appropriately.  Abusive behavior toward the lab equipment, other students, or the instructor, will result in summary dismissal from the course.
• Late submissions of assignments (homework and lab papers) will not be accepted. Plan ahead and notify the instructor prior to justifiable absences, or if a bona fide emergency prevented you from attending class.
• Please note that many of the lab assignments depend upon earlier labs:  even if you miss a lab or get a zero score because you do not turn in the lab assignment on time, you will still need to be responsible for the material in order to complete subsequent lab assignments.
• Among other details, Section 310.00 in the MSU Conduct Guidelines states that students must be prompt and regular in attending classes, be well prepared for classes, take exams when scheduled, and act in a respectful manner toward other students and the instructor.
