Description

Webinar - this event will be transmitted as a webinar, allowing interactive remote participation. Please read the ticket description for important details.


The ARM University Program (AUP) DSP Educational Kit provides educators with teaching materials including lecture slides and laboratory instructions, as well as numerous example programs aimed at reinforcing the understanding of DSP theory through an interactive learning experience. It seeks to bridge the gap between DSP theory and the electrical engineering teaching laboratory.

The laboratory exercises and program examples contained in the DSP Educational Kit are not computer simulations, but involve real-time processing of analogue audio signals and involve the use of signal generators, oscilloscopes, microphones, music players and headphones. This is achievable using any one of a number of different, inexpensive ARM Cortex-M4 microcontroller development kits available from semiconductor manufacturers including STMicroelectronics, Cypress Semiconductor, and NXP. They expose students to microcontroller programming, including interfacing and real-time programming practicalities.

This webinar will comprise a brief introduction to the philosophy behind the AUP DSP Educational Kit and a demonstration of some of the real-time audio signal processing example programs. A 40 minute presentation will be followed by 20 minutes of questions (from a live audience and from on-line participants.)

Donations of teaching materials and 'seed' hardware are available from the ARM University Program.

Speaker - Donald Reay,
lecturer at Heriot-Watt University, author of the AUP DSP Educational Kit and 'Digital Signal Processing using the ARM Cortex-M4', Wiley, 2015).
