To provide a detailed knowledge base for the theoretical and practical techniques used in discrete-time systems with particular reference to the advanced real-time processing of digital signals in electronic systems.

Learning Teaching & Assessment Strategy:
Concepts, principles & theories explored in formal lectures, practiced in tutorials and demonstrated in laboratory classes. Practical skills developed in laboratory sessions. Cognitive and personal skills developed in open-ended problem solving and design exercises, tackled by working in small groups supported by members of academic staff. Oral feedback is given during labs and seminars. The classroom tests will assess the students` grasp of the knowledge base of the module; the coursework will assess the wider learning outcomes expressed in the descriptor
