Teaching random signals and noise: an experimental approach

  title={Teaching random signals and noise: an experimental approach},
  author={Antonio J. L{\'o}pez-Mart{\'i}n},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Education},
A practical approach for teaching random signals and noise is described, where theoretical aspects are complemented by several laboratory experiments enriching the student's understanding on basic topics, such as histograms and estimation of probability density function, autocorrelation function, and power spectral density. The equipment required is minimum and inexpensive. In fact, the existing equipment of laboratory benches employed for an electronic instrumentation course has been used. No… CONTINUE READING
