This new edition provides a basic tutorial on digital signal processing (DSP). Beginning with discussions of numerical representation and complex numbers and exponentials, it goes on to explain difficult concepts such as sampling, aliasing, imaginary numbers, and frequency response. It does so using easy-to-understand examples with minimum mathematics. In addition, there is an overview of the DSP functions and implementation used in several DSP-intensive fields or applications, from error correction to CDMA mobile communication to airborne radar systems.


This book has been updated to include the latest developments in Digital Signal Processing, and has eight new chapters on:

– Automotive Radar Signal Processing

– Space-Time Adaptive Processing Radar

– Field Orientated Motor Control

– Matrix Inversion algorithms

– GPUs for computing

– Machine Learning

– Entropy and Predictive Coding

– Video compression


The text provides clear examples and a non-mathematical approach to get the reader up to speed quickly: it includes an overview of the DSP functions and implementation used in typical DSP-intensive applications, including error correction, CDMA mobile communication, and radar systems.


It is aimed at a readership of electrical engineers, software engineers, hardware engineers, system engineers and students with no DSP experience.


The author, Michael Parker is responsible for Intel’s FPGA division digital signal processing (DSP) product planning. This includes Variable Precision FPGA silicon architecture for DSP applications, DSP tool development, floating point tools, IP and video IP. He joined Altera (now Intel) in January 2007, and has over 20 years of previous DSP engineering design experience with companies such as Alvarion, Soma Networks, Avalcom, TCSI, Stanford Telecom and several startup companies. He holds an MSEE from Santa Clara University, and BSEE from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
