Digital Signal Processing
Digital Signal Processing (DSP) laboratory at CSULA offers balanced learning
experience between theory and experiments. In this laboratory, undergraduate
and graduate engineering students have the unique opportunity to receive
training in the area of digital signal processing using a state-of-the-art
software package known as LabVIEW.
STEER Research Activity:
Familiarization with Signal Processing Systems
Participants investigate on the overall concept of signal processing systems starting with analog signal conditioning, data acquisition, front-end data processing, signal processing algorithms, and finally conversion of processed data to an analog signal, via hands-on experiments on each topic. Hardware configuration as well as software integration is introduced to participants. The application of Digital Signal Processing to dynamical systems is demonstrated. Field trips to local industry are scheduled in order to enhance the real-world experience. State-of-the-art software packages such as LabVIEW and MATLAB are utilized to perform the design. Experience earned in this area has a great impact on the high school, as well as, community college mathematics and physics education.
