Dr. Cameron H.G. Wright Releases 2nd Edition of Digital Signal Processing Textbook
February 24, 2012 — Dr. Cameron H.G. Wright of the College of Engineering and Applied Science has published the second edition of his book, Real-Time Digital Signal Processing from MATLAB® to C with the TMS320C6x DSPst. Additional authors of the book include Thad Welch of Boise State and Mike Morrow of the University of Wisconsin.
The book is currently being used at universities across the globe including here at the University of Wyoming. According to the book's publisher, CRC Press, the first edition achieved "best seller" status within the first six months of publication. Since its publishing in January 2012, the book's second edition sales have already surpassed those of the first edition during the same time period.
"...There are many good textbooks today to teach digital signal processing, but most of them are content to teach the theory, and perhaps some MAT-LAB® simulations. This book has taken a bold step forward. It not only presents the theory, it reinforces it with simulations, and then it shows us how to actually use the results in real-time applications... This last step is not a trivial step, and that is why so many books, and courses, present only theory and simulations. With the combined expertise of the three authors of this text... the reader can step into the real-time world of applications with a text that presents an accessible path..."Delores M.
