ET2402 Advanced Filterdesign

Single subject course, 7.5 ECTS credits, Second cycle, spring semester 2012
This course occasion will not start spring semester 2012!

Overview

The course aims at giving the students deepened knowledge of digital filters, their characteristics and construction and also at giving meaning to the concept of optimal filter design. In particular, the least-square- and minimax criteria will be studied and compared. The purpose is to provide the students with an understanding of the mathematical formulation and its solution and also to provide knowledge and experience that is useful at the choice of filter type and optimization criterion. The students will also get an introduction to modern methods for filter design that can be used, among other things, for the construction of filters that have a complex specification or minimum phase.

Learning methods

The course is a self-instruction course based mainly on a number of compulsory hand-in assignments. The hand-in assignments must be handed in individually by each participant and may consist of a theoretical problem and/or programming assignments. Upon request some introductory lectures/exercises/opportunities to ask questions may be given in order for the students to familiarize themselves with the subject. The instruction is carried out entirely or partly in English.

Work placement

No work placement is included in the planned learning activities. BTH is aiming for a close contact with the surrounding community when developing courses and programmes.

Planned learning activities

Exercises and laboratory sessions.

Time allocation

On average, a student should study 200 hours to reach the learning outcomes. This time includes all the various available learning activities (lectures, self studies, examinations, etc.). This estimation is based on the fact that one academic year counts as 60 ECTS credits, corresponding to an average student workload of 1 600 hours. This may vary individually.
