- A full set of lecture slides, ready for use in a typical 10-12-week undergraduate course (see full syllabus).
- Lab manual with code solutions for faculty. Labs are based on low-cost but powerful Arm-based hardware platforms.
- Prerequisites: Basic C programming, elementary mathematics.
- The Digital Signal Processing Education Kit now supports the Cortex-M7 based STM32F7 Discovery board.
- The Cortex-M7 delivers greater processing performance along with a 10x acceleration of single-precision floating-point operations with the built in floating-point unit.
- Our Education Kit has been redesigned to deliver a more interactive hands-on experience with the Cortex-M7 based microcontroller, on-board DAC, and LCD display of the STM32F7 Discovery board.
To develop the ability to implement DSP systems and create commercially viable audio applications using high performance and energy-efficient Arm processors.
