093585 - MEASUREMENT ORIENTED DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING
This subject is aimed at providing students with the theoretical background of Digital Signal Processing (DSP) oriented to measurement applications. The sampling theory is covered, as well as the typical structure of measurement instruments based on DSP techniques. The main DSP algorithm are covered, such as the Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) and the digital filters with finite (FIR) and infinite (IIR) impulse response.
The course meets the requirements of the Dubliners Descriptors (DD), as reported in the next sections.
Risultati di apprendimento attesi
At the end of the course, the students are expected to gain skills in analyzing signals, both in the time domain and in the frequency domain, and are expected to identify the conditions under which a continuous-time signal can be sampled and converted into a discrete-time signal. (DD1)
The students are expected to understand and identify the possible errors that can be done in sampling signals, especially periodic signals and apply suitable techniques to mitigate them (DD1, DD2).
Students are also expected to master the fundametals of digital filtering, by designing and implementing simple FIR and IIR filters, with the support of computer design software (DD1, DD2).
At the end of the course, if all lab classes have been attended, the students are also expected to be capable of implementing simple digilat instruments, on a LabView platform, to process signals in the time and frequency domains (DD1, DD2).

The basic knowledge of function analysis is a fundamental and necessary prerequisite of this course. The students must master the concept of time and frequency domain and must know what a Fourier and Laplace transform are. The must be capable of recognizing the basic properties of a signal in the time and in the frequancy domains.
The students are supposed to know how to read and unedrstand mathematical equations including summations, derivatives and integrals.
The basic knowldege of metrology and the measurement uncertainty concept is also required.
Modalità di valutazione
The final test consists of a written test on the fundamental issues of the discrete-time signals and how to obtain them by sampling continuous-time signals (DD2). Passing the written test is the condition to access the oral test, that will cover all topics explained during classes and lab classes (DD2, DD4).
