 In order to register for the course A8M38ASP, the student must have registered for the required number of courses in the group BEZBM no later than in the same semester.
 Course guarantor:
 Josef Vedral
 Lecturer:
 Michal Janošek, Josef Vedral
 Tutor:
 Michal Janošek, Josef Vedral
 Supervisor:
 Department of Measurement
 Synopsis:

The course is dedicated to methods for preprocessing, digitalization and reconstruction of continuis signals. It is focused to the methods for achieving of high precision of transmission and suppression of spurious components. The laboratory exercises are divided into two parts: the first part is classical tasks; the second one is individual project of design of typically data acqusition system. The teaching is supported by the CAD system for measuring circuits.
