Subject Signal Processors introduces several tools available for digital signal processing (DSP), for example the popular TI's Code Composer Studio. Students acquaint themselves with family TMS320 TI's DSP processors. They study architecture and programming of the TMS320C6713. Moreover, they study and implement a few basic DSP algorithms such as digital filters, Fast Fourier Transform and so on.
