ATI's Advanced Topics in Digital Signal Processing course

Share |


    Technical Training Short On Site Course Quote

      This four-day course is designed for communication systems engineers, programmers, implementers and managers who need to understand current practice and next generation DSP techniques for upcoming communication systems. DSP is more than mapping legacy analog designs to a DSP implementation. To avoid compromise solution appropriate for an earlier time period, we return to first principles to learn how to apply new technology capabilities to the design of next generation communication systems. Students will receive a copy of the instructor's textbook, Multirate Signal Processing for Communication Systems.
