About this Textbook

Together the book and CD-ROM form a learning system, which provides both investigated studies and the visualization of complex processes. A didactic concept is undertaken for microelectronics, computer technology and communication engineering, which deals with the visualization of signals and processes in addition to graphical programming of signal processing systems. Through the utilization of a professional and worldwide supported software of metrology and control engineering, useful applications can be developed, modified and optimized. Computer supported processing of real signals is made possible over the sound card and the parallel port. Over two hundred pre-programmed signal engineering systems and designed transparencies are provided.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"I recently came across the book 'A Multimedia Interactive Introduction to Signal Processing.' It was uplifting to see a book that truly ‘communicates’ to the reader and provides the reader with a vision that ‘...stretches to infinity.’ Congratulations to Prof. Karrenberg and thanks for sharing this gift." (Prof. Kevin Fynn, CEO, Western Australian Telecommunications Research Institute)

"...I am really impressed with your explanations and examples in DASYlab. It makes the math behind signal processing so much easier to understand..." (Gustavo E. Herrera, CenSSIS, Northern University, Boston, MA)

"Using a multimedia approach, the author helps new signal processing readers to remove the ‘difficult’ part of signal processing by providing readers with an interactive base. … An Interactive Multimedia Introduction to Signal Processing is a welcome read to all those new to signal processing and to professionals working in this field. This book will be of practical use to university lecturers, students of engineering sciences interested in learning signal processing, and recent electrical engineering graduates." (Dharmendra Lingaiah, IEEE Circuits & Devices Magazine, Vol. 20 (5), 2004)

"This book is written principally for undergraduate students. … It is easy to operate and offers an effective instrument for developing, modifying and optimising the design of entire systems and their applications. … As recognition for this, the book was awarded the 2002 Digita award (presented annually to the best education software). … With the software, it is fun to invent, check, modify, etc. signal processing applications and I enjoyed it … . " (Giovanni Sicuranza, IEE Proceedings - Vision, Image and Signal Processing, September, 2003)

From the reviews of the second edition:

"The presented book and provided CD-ROM form a learning system that supports both investigative studies and the visualization of complex processes. It is written principally for undergraduate students. … There are numerous introduction-videos, one for every chapter and more than 250 high-quality pictures. … This innovative book and CD-ROM learning system offers students and teachers a hands-on, interactive tool that makes the concepts and tools of modern, computer-based signal processing immediately understandable." (Tzvetan Semerdjiev, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1145, 2008)
