Digital signal processing (DSP) is often treated as a complicated, theoretical subject. This book takes a friendly, informal approach, stressing the practical information needed to not just understand, but use DSP on real hardware, including microcontrollers. It is aimed at readers who might not have an background in signal processing, and it does not assume mathematics beyond algebra and trigonometry. Topics include digital filters, the Fast Fourier Transform (FFT), and generating special signals and functions. Familiarity with programming microprocessors is assumed. The Motorola MC68HC16 is used as an example of a microcontroller with DSP-specific features, and complete assembly language programs show how DSP is implemented on a real processor. Numerous cartoon illustrations by Jonathan Roth.

The friendly, intuitive approach to microcontroller-based DSP!
If you actually want to process signals — not just theorize about digital signal processing — this is the book for you. It's a friendly, informal guide to understanding — and implementing — digital signal processing with microcontrollers. You'll find enough theory to keep you on track (and a brief refresher on the basic math you'll need — with no calculus!) But the focus is on real-world applications, especially specifying, designing, and implementing digital filters, and using fast Fourier transform.
Digital Signal Processing and the Microcontroller includes extensive examples and assembler code based on Motorola's powerful 16-bit M68HC16 microcontroller — and expert DSP insights you can use with any processor. Whether you have a formal electrical engineering background or not, it's all you need to get results with DSP fast.
The accompanying website contains extensive source code for the MC68HC16 microcontroller, including assembler code for DSP filters and other applications; a complete set of MC68HC16 documentation in PDF format; MATLAB m-files for selected examples, and more.
