James D. Broesch is a staff engineer for General Atomics, where he is responsible for the design and development of several advanced control systems used on fusion control programs. He also teaches classes in signal processing and hardware design at the University of California-San Diego.

· Integrated book/software package allows readers to simulate digital signal processing (DSP) situations and experiment with effects of different DSP techniques.
· Gives an applications-oriented approach to DSP instead of a purely mathematical one.
· The accompanying CD includes a DSP "calculator" to help solve design problems

Review:

"Until now, digital signal processing has required at least a high-powered education in mathematics, if not an engineering degree. I've seen books on digital signal processing that you could use for weightlifting. Fortunately, a very practical approach to the subject, which explains the math rather than ignoring it, is a remarkable book by James D. Broesch called Digital Signal Processing Demystified. The book comes with a CD-ROM that contains Windows software (DSP Calculator) which allows you to experiment with some of the concepts in the book, and is good enough for professional use."
--Nuts and Volts magazine

"... the approach is very interactive. The author alternately explains a concept (such as the polynomial series, the Taylor series, convolution, z-transforms, DFTs, and FFTs, FIR filters, and IIR filters) and then challenges the reader to use the interactive software (provided on a CD-ROM provided with the book) to experiment with these concepts. By experimenting with the software, the reader develops an intuitive sense of what is behind the mathematics of DSP."
--VMEbus Systems magazine

From the Publisher:

An easy way to learn the mysteries of DSP
Digital signal processing (DSP) is one of the hottest areas of contemporary electronics - and one of the toughest to master. Jim Broesch has the answer you’ve been looking for! His book is an intuitive approach that gently introduces the necessary math and then goes into sampling techniques, convolution, Fourier series, orthogonality and quadrature, transforms, FIR filter design, IIR filters, DSP tools, and much more. The accompanying CD-ROM is a "virtual laboratory" for experimentation with the effects of convolution, transforms, and other techniques. You can even design simple digital filters interactively using the powerful suite of experimental, educational, and design tools on the CD-ROM. It doesn’t matter if you’re a student or an experienced design engineer, or if you need to come up to speed on DSP techniques ASAP, you need this book! Over 200 pages plus the Windows 3.1/95/NT CD-ROM. The CD-ROM for Windows 3.1 and 95 machines contains the DSP Calculator suite of powerful interactive software routines that enable you to create waveforms, design filters, filter the waveforms, and display and analyze the results. Interactive experiments in the book make use of the DSP Calculator. The routines contained in the Calculator are: *general purpose function generator *Fourier waveform generator *DFT conversion *FFT conversion *complex waveform generation *real and imaginary waveform display *convolution routine *filter design routine. TABLE OF CONTENTS: About the Accompanying Software Chapter 1: Introduction to DSP Chapter 2: The General Model of a DSP System Chapter 3: The Numerical Basis for DSP Chapter 4: Signal Acquisition Chapter 5: Some Example Applications Chapter 6: The Fourier Series Chapter 7: Orthogonality and Quadrature Chapter 8: Transforms Chapter 9: FIR Filter Design Chapter 10: The IIR Chapter 11: Tools for Working with DSP Chapter 12: DSP and the Future Appendix A: Fundamentals of Engineering Calculus and Other Math Tools Appendix B: DSP Vendors Appendix C: Useful Magazines and Other Publications Glossary and References REVIEWS: "Until now, digital signal processing has required at least a high-powered education in mathematics, if not an engineering degree.
