  • A ground-breaking new approach to teaching elementary signal processing by closely connecting theory and application
  • Includes a book, design software for hands-on exercises, and detailed explanations on how to learn from and use them
  • Almost no mathematics required
  • Suitable for self-study
  • For beginners and practitioners in electrical engineering
This is a very new concept for learning Signal Processing, not only from the physically-based scientific fundamentals, but also from the didactic perspective, based on modern results of brain research. The textbook together with the DVD form a learning system that provides investigative studies and enables the reader to interactively visualize even complex processes. The unique didactic concept is built on visualizing signals and processes on the one hand, and on graphical programming of signal processing systems on the other. The concept has been designed especially for microelectronics, computer technology and communication. The book allows to develop, modify, and optimize useful applications using DasyLab - a professional and globally supported software for metrology and control engineering. With the 3rd edition, the software is also suitable for 64 bit systems running on Windows 7. Real signals can be acquired, processed and played on the sound card of your computer. The book provides more than 200 pre-programmed signal engineering systems and design transparencies. Numerous introduction-videos, one for every chapter, and more than 250 high-quality figures come along with the learning system, as well as a visualization of all the "living" experiments and their results. With this learning system, readers can now make use of "equipment" and software. The new, 3rd edition many improvements, corrections and smaller additions, and a new chapter new chapter presenting a clear introduction to mathematical modeling of signals, processes, and systems.
