DSP Resources

Filed under: Electronics,ham radio — Cranky Sysadmin @ 9:59 am

I’m learning DSP basically from the ground up without an advanced math background. My goal is to gain a deep understanding of digital signal processing (I’ll define deep when I’m tired of learning). Below are some of the resources that I’m using to get started. As I find more resources, I’ll add them here.

  1. Analog Devices DSP Primer. A very brief 10,000 foot overview.
  2. FFT for dummies. This page doesn’t actually get into the details of Fast Fourier Transform, but it does describe sampling methods and how to interpret the output of FFT programs.
  3. The DSP chapter in a recent ARRL Handbook. Chapter 15 in the 2013 edition. This has an overview and PIC based examples of the pieces of a software defined radio.
  4. Signal Processing for Communications. I have only started reading this free online resource. It is the textbook for the Coursera DSP course. It’s available for free Download.
  5. The Scientists’ and Engineers’ guide to Digital Signal Processing. I haven’t started reading this yet. It’s available for free download or hardcover purchase.
  6. Calculus Made Easy. I have a newer edition with more chapters. If I want a deep understanding of DSP, I am probably going to need to learn Calculus.
  7. Experimental Methods in RF Design chapters 10 and 11 (revised 1st edition). Looks like lots of practical stuff here. They use an ez-kit lite adsp-2181 which I’m having a hard time finding.
