Homework Help: DSP Software Research Paper

  1. Nov 26, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    DSP Technology Report

    Research a particular application of DSP, gathering enough information to deliver a 10 min oral report to the rest of the class. You can focus on hardware, software issues, or a specific algorithm. Give as much detail as possible.

    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution

    I'm just having a little bit of trouble getting the ball rolling here. We've talked about some DSP applications in class, but I'm more curious about the software used in the design process of various DSP/ADC/DAC/thingymajigger/etc modules. I'm not entirely sure where I can look for some of the more common software that has been used over the past few years. So far I'm looking at a dsp module that I was given with my DSP textbook, DSPower (which is no longer used), and DirectDSP (which replaced DSPower).

    I want to be thorough with the report which means that I need to talk about speed for various operations such as FFT, DTFT, DFT and etc, and the advantages of gui vs command line as well as other things.

    What I'm looking for, as far as help, is any other software worth looking into as well as properties of the various softwares to look into. Thanks in advance for any help!

    The applicable pieces of software may be proprietary to the companies who are using the modulation scheme, but check out OOFDM and its uses in communications. It's a fascinating exercise in communications and DSP, and would make for a really interesting talk if presented well to a knowledgable audience. :smile:
