An Interactive Multimedia Introduction to Signal Processing


About this book


A didactic concept is undertaken for microelectronics, computer technology and communication engineering, which deals with the visualization of signals and processes in addition to graphical programming of signal processing systems. Through the utilization of a professional and globally supported software for metrology and control engineering, DasyLab, useful applications can be developed, modified and optimized.
Computer supported processing of real signals is made possible over the sound card and the parallel port. Over two hundred pre-programmed signal engineering systems and design transparencies are provided.
Pictures also play a dominant rule in this book: there are numerous introduction-videos, one for every chapter, more than 250 high-quality pictures and - most important – all the "living" experiments and their results are visualized. With this learning system, readers can now make use of "equipment" and software, which was practically unaffordable for individuals in the past.
What's more, here is a very new concept for learning Signal Processing, not only from the physically-based scientific fundamentals, but also from the didactic perspective, based on modern results of brain research.

About the authors

Ulrich Karrenberg, the author of this book, studied telecommunications in Berlin from 1960. After completing his degree course he worked as an engineer for 7 years. After taking a degree course in physics and mathematics at Cologne University he started working as a teacher at the present-day Heinrich-Hertz-Berufskolleg (vocational college) in Düsseldorf. For 12 years he was responsible for the full-time vocational training of students in the field of electrical engineering up to their university entry qualifications. Alongside his main position, he was a member of the curriculum board for vocational schools for 16 years. He also worked in the field of further education for teachers at the Paedagogisches Institut in Düsseldorf for 15 years. Since 1993 he has been working in teacher training in the field of telecommunications and information technology at the Studienseminar Düsseldorf for vocational colleges.
