From the Foreword: "...There are many good textbooks today to teach digital signal processing, but most of them are content to teach the theory, and perhaps some MATLAB® simulations. This book has taken a bold step forward. It not only presents the theory, it reinforces it with simulations, and then it shows us how to actually use the results in real-time applications. This last step is not a trivial step, and that is why so many books, and courses, present only theory and simulations. With the combined expertise of the three authors of this text...the reader can step into the real-time world of applications with a text that presents an accessible path..." —Delores M. Etter, Texas Instruments Distinguished Chair in Electrical Engineering and Executive Director, Caruth Institute for Engineering Education, Southern Methodist University, Dallas, Texas, USA Mastering practical application of real-time digital signal processing (DSP) remains one of the most challenging and time-consuming pursuits in the field. It is even more difficult without a resource to bridge the gap between theory and practice. Filling that void, Real-Time Digital Signal Processing from MATLAB® to C with the TMS320C6x DSPs, Second Edition is organized in three sections that cover enduring fundamentals and present practical projects and invaluable appendices. This updated edition gives readers hands-on experience in real-time DSP using a practical, step-by-step framework that also incorporates demonstrations, exercises, and problems, coupled with brief overviews of applicable theory and MATLAB® application. Engineers, educators, and students rely on this book for precise, simplified instruction on use of real-time DSP applications. The book’s software supports the latest high-performance hardware, including the powerful, inexpensive, and versatile OMAP-L138 Experimenter Kit and other development boards. Incorporating readers’ valuable feedback and suggestions, this installment covers additional topics (such as PN sequences) and more advanced real-time DSP projects (including higher-order digital communications projects), making it even more valuable as a learning tool.

This textbook introduces powerful computational software tool called MATLAB. The main objective of this book is to expose the readers to MATLAB features that integrate computation, visualization and programming in an easy-to-use environment. This book covers built-in functions of MATLAB, commands and their applications in topics of mathematical physics and engineering mathematics. The book is written in a very simple language and chapters are arranged sequentially. Each topic covered in this book, has its corresponding theoretical explanation prior to its MATLAB execution. The authors explain concepts with the help of screenshots of the MATLAB software and programming codes with their outputs. This approach not only creates a direct link between the book and the MATLAB software but also imbibes the feeling of actual interaction with MATLAB software. A sufficient number of examples based on MATLAB programming codes have been worked out so that students can grasp the concepts, the ideas, and the results in an easy way. At the end of each chapter, students will have a chance to answer several application-based questions in exercise. All these features make this book to be used as a textbook for theoretical learning as well as for laboratory course. The book is suitable for the undergraduate and postgraduate students of mathematics, physics, instrumentation and electronics. The undergraduate students of engineering will also find this book useful.
