Abstract
The challenge of teaching practical optical engineering in a single course can be overcome by taking advantage of existing student knowledge of signal processing concepts. Such an approach greatly facilitates student mastery of new topics. This paper describes how professors can use this technique to efficiently teach optical engineering.

Engineering educators have found that well-chosen demonstrations of digital signal processing (DSP) can result in improved comprehension and better retention of topics for the majority of our students. In this paper, we discuss the use of a demonstration using real-time DSP to implement a basic adaptive filter for noise cancellation, utilizing newly-available DSP hardware from Texas Instruments. A description of the new hardware platform, the demonstration used, and results from a short survey a...

This paper discusses a simple framework that can be used to connect a significant number of the tools and techniques developed in a first course in either discrete-time signals and systems or digital signal processing. While this framework is not revolutionary, it allows for the rapid placement of new material into the course's context. Additionally, a simple model of an unstable financial system allows for a rapid introduction and overview of the course while observably increasing student inter...

This paper draws attention to the literature in the areas of learning, specifically, constructivism, conceptual change and cognitive development. It emphasizes the contribution of such research to our understanding of the learning process. This literature provides guidelines for teachers, at all levels, in their attempt to have their students achieve learning with understanding. Research about the constructive nature of students’ learning processes, about students’ mental models, and students’ m...

For some time, the authors have been suggesting and providing proven DSP teaching tools that have helped motivate students and faculty to implement real-time DSP-based systems to enhance education. These efforts have emphasized the fact that DSP is much more than just a collection of theories and problem solving techniques, and that hands-on experience with hardware is extremely beneficial. In addition to facilitating the education of numerous engineers and engineering students, these same tools...

This update to "CCD Arrays, Cameras, and Displays" (2nd Ed.) addresses CMOS/CCD differences, similarities, and applications, including architecture concepts and operation, such as full-frame, interline transfer, progressive scan, color filter arrays, rolling shutters, 3T, 4T, 5T, and 6T. The authors discuss novel designs, such as EMCCD, EBCCD, Super CCD, and intensified CCDs, illustrate sampling theory and aliasing with numerous examples, and describe the advantages and limitations of small pixe...

After many years of practicing, reading and writing about signal processing education, we have observed some common themes. This paper discusses the trade-off of simulation versus the use of real-time processing on real-world signals as a motivator for signal processing students. A real-time DSP demonstration accompanies the presentation of this paper.

This work in progress paper describes software that enables online machine learning experiments in an undergraduate DSP course. This software operates in HTML5 and embeds several digital signal processing functions. The software can process natural signals such as speech and can extract various features, for machine learning applications. For example in the case of speech processing, LPC coefficients and formant frequencies can be computed. In this paper, we present speech processing, feature ex...

Several web-based signal processing simulation packages for education have been developed in a Java environment. Although this environment has provided convenience and accessibility using standard browser technology, it has recently become vulnerable to cyber-attacks and is no longer compatible with secure browsers. In this paper, we describe our efforts to transform our award-winning J-DSP online laboratory by rebuilding it on an HTML5 framework. Along with a new simulation environment, we have...
