This book, written as an introduction to analog signal processing, offers examples that are worked in detail, showing step-by-step how to apply the techniques discussed within. In an effort to use current computing technologies, sections on how to work problems using MATLAB and the TI-89 hand calculator are given. Other topics covered include: basic equations for complex analog waveforms, Laplace transforms, Laplace circuit analysis, transfer functions for analog circuits, pole-zero plots, frequency response of analog circuits, filter specifications, frequency response characteristics of op-amps, and the design of Butterworth, Chebyshev, and elliptic active filters.
- MATLAB and TI-89 coverage appears in separate sections to allow flexibility in the presentation of material; material can be referenced when the instructor feels it is appropriate, or the instructor can reference a different computer or calculator that may be more accessible in their particular circumstance.
- In support of using other calculating devices, the MATLAB sections and the TI-89 sections use identical examples, demonstrating that when the subject matter is understood, any current calculating device can be effectively applied to the material.
- Laplace transforms are covered from a systems approach, with detailed information on the system used to work the examples and step-by-step solutions in the examples that make it possible to easily learn the system.
- Techniques and methods used have been chosen so that they apply to a wide variety of problems.
