ELEC4404 Signal Processing
- 6 points
|Semester 1||UWA (Perth)||Face to face|
- The topics covered in this unit include stochastic signal processing—single and joint distributions and random variables, random signals and properties, wide-sense stationary and power spectral density, white Gaussian noise and filtering; optimum and adaptive filters—optimum signal estimation (MMSE), Wiener filters, linear prediction, least-squares filtering, LMS and RLS adaptive filters, Kalman filters; signal models—AR, MA, ARMA; and spectrum estimation—non-parametric methods, parametric methods.
- Students are able to (1) demonstrate professional engineering skills and abilities when working in teams; (2) apply random signal analysis to modelling and filtering; (3) evaluate, design and apply optimum and adaptive filters to signals and engineering systems; (4) analyse and evaluate signal modelling techniques for system identification; and (5) evaluate and apply spectrum estimation methods to the spectral analysis of signals.
- Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: (1) laboratories; (2) examinations; and (3) design project. Further information is available in the unit outline.
Supplementary assessment is only available in this unit in the case of a student who has obtained a mark of 45 to 49 and is currently enrolled in this unit, and it is the only remaining unit that the student must pass in order to complete their course.

- The availability of units in Semester 1, 2, etc. was correct at the time of publication but may be subject to change.
- All students are responsible for identifying when they need assistance to improve their academic learning, research, English language and numeracy skills; seeking out the services and resources available to help them; and applying what they learn. Students are encouraged to register for free online support through GETSmart; to help themselves to the extensive range of resources on UWA's STUDYSmarter website; and to participate in WRITESmart and (ma+hs)Smart drop-ins and workshops.
- Books and other material wherever listed may be subject to change. Book lists relating to 'Preliminary reading', 'Recommended reading' and 'Textbooks' are, in most cases, available at the University Co-operative Bookshop (from early January) and appropriate administrative offices for students to consult. Where texts are listed in the unit description above, an asterisk (*) indicates that the book is available in paperback.
