Fundamentals of Real-Time Embedded DSP

A required course in the Specialized Studies Program in DSP Systems Engineering.

Course Description

Real-time embedded digital signal processing (DSP) systems are widely used in medical devices, image/video processing, telecommunications, and industrial products. Learn how to design and efficiently implement real-time DSP algorithms on actual DSP hardware. Trade-offs and optimizations needed to meet execution throughput and resource usage will be studied. Basic DSP algorithms such as FIR filters, IIR filters and FFT will be implemented on a commercially available DSP development board and actual hardware performance investigated.

Prerequisites: EECS X495 DSP Fundamentals, Modeling, and Analysis, EECS 805 C Programming for Embedded Systems or equivalent experience

Dipu Ghosh, MSEE, MBA, is the founder of VidyaConnect, an educational services firm. He teaches computer technologies such as ARM, DSP and C. He has been teaching at UCI Division of Continuing Education since 2005 and UCLA Extension since 2016. Previously, he taught at Marquette University, WCTC, GE and the University of Rochester. When teaching online, Mr. Ghosh expects a level of interaction comparable to in-class instruction. Each week includes a presentation, a lab and an online forum where students collaborate with each other to learn the technology and solve problems on real hardware. Mr. Ghosh is also the founder of Syprosoft Inc., a product development firm. He has been its President and Chief Engineer since 2002. He has supported clients in the areas of embedded systems design, real-time systems, image/signal processing, software development and regulatory compliance. Mr. Ghosh is also co-founder of Hepatiq Inc., a maker of diagnostic software. He has served as its CEO since 2012. The patented HEPATIQ® software provides indices of liver disease severity that predict clinical outcomes. Mr. Ghosh has an MSEE from the University of Rochester and an MBA from Marquette University. He is married with three children and enjoys biking, swimming and chess. “Engineering is all about figuring things out rather than pulling out canned solutions”, says Instructor Ghosh. “Thus I strive to help my students learn to fish rather than simply provide them fish.”
