Having passed this module, students know fundamental principles of analog and digital signal processing and signal characterization. They are able to describe analog and digital signals in the time and frequency domain. Students are able to determine the Fourier and Laplace Transform of digital and analog signals. They are also able to describe the requirements for a lossless conversion from analog to digital domain using time and frequency domain description of the analog-to-digital-conversion process. Moreover, they know the basics of the technical realization of Analog-to-Digital-Converters (ADCs). Students who passed this module are capable of designing filters in the analog and digital domain to achieve a given specification of the filter function. They know the basics of signal modulation and transmission and can describe the modulation process in time and frequency domain.
