and Systems Laboratory (EE 3102)
Manual for Signals and Systems Laboratory EE 3102
CS 1315 Computer Science I
In this course, the student
will acquire hands-on experience with programming in MATLAB. MATLAB will
enable you to study and understand the theory behind signals and systems
as well as validate the theory with real-word examples. The labs will cover
linear time-invariant systems, Fourier series and Fourier transform, sampling,
digital filters, along with several accompanying digital signal-processing
You must read each
week’s experiment before coming to the lab. Try to understand the objectives
of the experiment and determine what information you need to gather. You
do not need to turn in any pre-lab work.
Although a lab notebook
is not required, it is recommended. In the laboratory notebook you may
keep preliminary notes, details of experimental procedure, and a brief
analyses of experimental results. Bound notebooks are available at the
bookstore and are called “computation” notebooks.
Lab instruction sheet
At the beginning of each
lab, you will be given a lab instruction sheet. The instruction sheet is
meant to verify that you completed the lab. That sheet needs to be signed
by the TA before leaving the lab.
The lab sheet needs to be turned
in with your lab report.
The reports need to be
typed and must adhere to the format (organization) given in Appendix A
of the Manual. That is, it should have a cover sheet, an introduction
section, results, discussion of results and conclusions sections.
Attach to your report,
the MATLAB code. Also, attach the signed lab instruction sheet.
All lab reports will
receive equal weight, and will have the following grade distribution:
Correctness and detail
of experimental work : 60%
Answers to questions:
Neatness and writing
of report: 20%
Lab grades will be assigned
as follows:A: 90-100 - B:80-89 - C: 70-79
D: 60-69- F: below
