All the design and development inspiration and direction an digital engineer needs in one blockbuster book! Kenton Williston, author, columnist, and editor of DSP DesignLine has selected the very best digital signal processing design material from the Newnes portfolio and has compiled it into this volume. The result is a book covering the gamut of DSP design'from design fundamentals to optimized multimedia techniques'with a strong pragmatic emphasis. In addition to specific design techniques and practices, this book also discusses various approaches to solving DSP design problems and how to successfully apply theory to actual design tasks. The material has been selected for its timelessness as well as for its relevance to contemporary embedded design issues. CONTENTS: Chapter 1 ADCs, DACs, and Sampling Theory Chapter 2 Digital Filters Chapter 3 Frequency Domain Processing Chapter 4 Audio Coding Chapter 5 Video Processing Chapter 6 Modulation Chapter 7 DSP Hardware Options Chapter 8 DSP Processors and Fixed-Point Arithmetic Chapter 9 Code Optimization and Resource Partitioning Chapter 10 Testing and Debugging DSP Systems
