I am Ad van den Enden and I have worked for about 40 years at Philips research and Philips semiconductors. For more then than 20 years my prime interest at Philips was to study the theoretical concepts that form the basis of modern DSP and to use these concepts to increase the efficiency of all kind of systems that were developed. Using more theory in a system can decrease its complexity. The complexity of a system can be expressed for instance in chip area, power consumption or number of MIPS on a signal processor. An increase of the efficiency by a factor of 10 or more has often been demonstrated.
Within Philips, this course has been taught for a large number of years and it was highly appreciated by a large majority of about 2000 participants. Besides a large number of courses inside Philips in Holland, this course was also given at the TU Eindhoven and in Belgium, France, Taiwan, Tokyo and Singapore.
Who should attend?:
System designers with a technical college (HTS) or a university level, working in e.g. research or product hardware/software development. Participants should have a technical background in electrical engineering, physics, mathematics or computer science, with only a basic knowledge in mathematics (differentiation, integration, complex calculation, Fourier and Laplace transforms).
If you have to design a complicated DSP system and if your people need additional theoretical information, I can act as a consultant. This can be done for just one or a few days or for a longer period. If you are interested, please contact me by mail. A.W.M. van den Enden
