Description of this Book

Digital Signal Processing is the technology at the heart of everything from digital media to smartphones to medical imaging The Essential Guide to Digital Signal Processing is the perfect DSP book for managers, technical writers, marketers, technicians, and other non-engineers who work for (or invest in) technical companies that rely on DSP. World-renowned DSP expert Richard Lyons demystifies DSP technology and terminology using everyday examples and plenty of simple diagrams. He explains what digital signals are, how and why we generate them, what we do with them, and how digital signal processing has changed our way of life. Lyons builds on the friendly, easy-to-understand style pioneered by previous Essential guides, including Carl Weisman's best-selling The Essential Guide to RF and Wireless. He presents crystal-clear descriptions of digital signal collection, signal filtering, signal analysis, and a wide variety of DSP applications. By the time you walk away, you'll have a clear and useful conceptual understanding of all key signal processing operations and vocabulary: knowledge that will make you more successful in any non-technical role that involves DSP or requires you to communicate about it.
