In addition to its thorough coverage of DSP design and programming techniques, Smith also covers the operation and usage of DSP chips. He uses Analog Devices' popular DSP chip family as design examples. Also included on the companion website is technical info on DSP processors from the four major manufacturers (Analog Devices, Texas Instruments, Motorola, and Lucent) and other DSP software.

*Covers all major DSP topics
*Full of insider information and shortcuts
*Basic techniques and algorithms explained without complex numbers

Best book on the topic; teaches you what DSP means. I wish I had this book instead of my professor (who just assign homework instead of teaching what DSP is) when I took DSP course in college. Read full review

About the author (2003)

Dodie (Dorothy) Smith was born in 1896 in Northern England. Although she studied drama, she turned her talents to writing, successfully submitting a screenplay to a silent movie company and writing the script for "Autumn Crocus," which opened in 1931 to rave reviews. In 1934, Dodie's husband Alec brought home a Dalmatian puppy named Pongo, a gift that would eventually inspire her to write on of the greatest works of literature today.
