Introduction of DSP Based Experiments In Electrical Engineering Technology Courses Salahuddin Qazi , Naseem Ishaq State University of New York Institute of Technology Utica, New York, NY 13504.


Digital signal processing (DSP) technology has become an important technology with applications ranging from mobile phones, fax machines, multimedia computers, CD players, and will soon replace analog circuitry in TV sets and telephones. It is important that the electrical engineering technology students at the undergraduate level should be exposed to broad hands-on knowledge of the current DSP technologies. The purpose of this paper is to present our efforts in introducing DSP based experiments in a number of undergraduate courses in electrical engineering technology program at the State University of New York Institute of Technology, Utica/Rome. The paper will also review the material and resources available in digital signal processing education. It is expected that such an endeavor in our curriculum will update the program and make the students better prepared for the changing job market.

I. Introduction

The department of electrical engineering technology at the State University of New York Institute of Technology (SUNY), Utica, New York, offers B.S. programs in electrical engineering technology, computer engineering technology and photonics. It also offers an integrated Master of Science Program in Advanced Technology jointly with mechanical and industrial engineering technologies departments. The curriculum in these programs emphasizes hands- on education and has a number of laboratories in the areas of communications, control, digital systems, computer vision, microprocessors, multimedia and networking technology. SUNY Institute of Technology is an upper division transfer college for students who have completed their first two years at a community college.

According to Forward Concepts, a Tempe, Ariz, market research firm, the sale of programmable digital signal processor (DSP) hit more than $3 billion in 1997, and is expected to reach to an estimated $14 billion by the end of year 2002. Much of this growth is driven by the use of digital signal processors (DSPs) in modems for cellular telephony and data communications over the public switched telephone network. Its use is increasing as the demand for internet access has exploded due to its applications in business, work and entertainment. As standards and protocols in these applications continue to change and new features are continually added with higher data rates, the use of programmable DSPs ensures the equipment is upgraded simply by loading new software.1 Manufacturers of programmable DSP chips are employing new architectures to
