Associate Professor, D.Sc. Antti Kosonen


Upon completion of the course the student will be able to: 1. describe the practical implementation of digital filters, 2. describe the finite word length effects on the frequency response and operation of a filter, 3. in order to minimize these effects, transform the direct-form implementations into a more beneficial format with respect to the finite word length effects and do the required scaling, 4. describe the representations of fixed and floating point numbers, 5. design FIR and IIR filters with the ready-made software and describe the basics of design methods, 6. know applications of optimal and adaptive filters, 7. implement median filters.


The finite word length effects and elimination of these effects. Alternative structures for discrete-time systems and their programming implementation. Computer-aided design of digital filters. Decimation and interpolation. Median filters. Optimal and adaptive filters.
