Electronic processing of signals is done in some fashion to extract some useful information from them, usually leading to measurements about the source of signals. Primary signals may be of different types – short and fast random pulses, trains of pulses, slowly varying continuous pulses and so on. Some of the common challenges in signal processing are the number of channels, amplitude, rise time and frequency of signals. Modern signal processing techniques employ advanced hardware components such as ASICs, FPGAs, DSPs, GPUs and other custom built hardware along with highly sophisticated algorithms. A pedagogical review of classical to modern signal processing techniques will be attempted in this session.
