Workshop:  Signal and Data Analysis Simulations on the iPhone and iPad for Research and Education

March 9, 2012 - SCOB 101, Arizona State University

JDSP logo

A workshop on performing signal and data analysis simulations on iPhones and iPads will be conducted in SCOB101, at Arizona State University from time on March 9, 2012. Participants will be provided with phones and tablets for performing the simulations. However, those who own a device are encouraged to bring them. Refreshments will be provided for all the participants.

The participants of this workshop will be exposed to the utility of the iOS Java-DSP (iJDSP) education software in multidisciplinary signal and data analysis applications. The session will be interactive and participants will use and assess software that involves step-by-step online simulations using iJDSP. Examples of prepackaged online laboratory simulations that can be disseminated in DSP related courses will also be presented. The workshop will be useful to instructors, students and practitioners with interests in DSP apps, signal analysis for music courses and other engineering applications.

Registration ($95) for the workshop is required.  Registration for ASU graduate students may be sponsored by participant support. Please email sensip@asu.edu for more details.

Workshop Activities and Objectives:

This workshop will include tutorials and examples to demonstrate how instructors  and students can use iJDSP for their simulations. The session will be conducted as a computer workshop with iOS devices and participants will program, and execute iJDSP simulations and scripts.

The objectives are:
    - to learn how to use iJDSP. Documentation and instruction will be given to get participants started.
    - to learn how to use the FFT to compute spectra of signals.
    - to learn how to use the signal generator and the filter design functions.
    - to learn how to use other pre-canned signal analysis functions.
    - to enable participants to design their own iJDSP simulations.

The workshop is intended for Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Geology and Earth Systems and other engineering faculty and instructors teaching courses that involve signal and data analysis.

Expected Outcome:

Participants will be able to use the iJDSP software and laboratories, design their own J-DSP based simulations. Participants will be able to plan an adaptation of these software and materials to their own applications.
