Digital Signal Processing: A Practical Guide for Engineers and ScientistsIn 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

LibraryThing Review
User Review  yfngoh  LibraryThingBest 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
