Digital Signal Processing: Road to The Future
The field of digital signal processing (DSP) has been a very active area of research and application for more than six decades. This broad development has paralleled in time the rapid development of high-speed electronic digital computers, microelectronics and integrated circuit fabrication technologies. An ever-increasing assortment of integrated circuits specifically tailored to perform common DSP functions is available to the design engineer as system building blocks or parts-in-trade. DSP methodologies have been applied to consumer electronics, communications, automotive electronics, instrumentation, medical electronics, tomography and acoustic imaging, cartography, seismology, speech recognition, robotics and other fields. In his talk, Dr. Mitra will provide a brief overview of the initial developments in DSP and review some of the important advances made during the nearly-60-year period of its growth, and will describe a number of its key applications. He will conclude with speculation on DSP’s future trends and directions.
