ECE 321: Continuous Time Linear Systems
Prerequisite: ECE 320 and MTH 212; for CPE/ECE majors only
General Education requirement: Natural Science Technology
Introduction to continuous-time signal analysis and linear systems. Topics include classification of signals and systems, basic signal manipulation, system properties, time domain analysis of continuous-time linear time-invariant (LTI) systems, Laplace transform and its use in LTI system analysis, transfer functions and feedback, frequency response and analog filters, Fourier series representation and properties, continuous-time Fourier transform, spectral analysis and AM modulation, and simulation. Students learn to use signal analysis tools.
