Analysis of Signals and Systems

Course #EC2410

Est.imated Completion Time: 3 months


Analysis of digital and analog signals in the frequency domain; properties and applications of the discrete Fourier transform, the Fourier series, and the continuous Fourier transform; analysis of continuous systems using convolution and frequency domain methods; applications to sampling, windowing, and amplitude modulation and demodulation systems.

Learning Outcomes

  • Determine the effects of sampling a continuous-time signal and compute the power and energy of a continuous-time and/or discrete-time signal.
  • Evaluate the expected continuous-time expression for a signal by using the spectrum information of the discretized signal.
  • Compute the response of a LTI system by convolution and the response of a LTI system to a cosine signal excitation.
  • Characterize a LTI system in terms of its frequency response.
  • Compute the response of a LTI system by using FT properties and the Discrete Fourier Transform of a discrete time signal.
  • Analyze the contents of a basic discrete time signal from its frequency information.
