Dr. Cameron Wright Continues to Receive International Recognition
December 20, 2012 — Dr. Cameron Wright of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering was recently featured as a spokesperson for the American Society for Engineering Education’s (ASEE) monthly publication entitled PRiSM. He was recognized for his role as Associate Department Head for the Department of Computer Engineering, being honored twice as the UW Mortar Board’s “Top Prof” award, receiving the 2007 ASEE Rocky Mountain Section’s Outstanding Teaching Award, and also for his 30 years of military experience as an Air Force Officer.
Additionally, Wright was recently notified by Cathy Wicks, Chief of the Worldwide University Program for Texas Instruments that his book entitled Real-Time Digital Signaling Processing from MATLAB to C TMS320C6x DSPs, Second Edition had reached #2 on Amazon’s best-sellers list for digital signal processing. The book is co-authored by Dr. Wright, Dr. Thad Welch of Boise State University, and Dr. Michael Morrow of the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Extracted from the forward:
"…There are many good textbooks today to teach digital signal processing, but most of them are content to teach the theory, and perhaps some MATLAB® 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…"

Mastering practical application of real-time digital signal processing (DSP) remains one of the most challenging and time-consuming pursuits in the field. It is even more difficult without a resource to bridge the gap between theory and practice.
Filling that void, Real-Time Digital Signal Processing from MATLAB® to C with the TMS320C6x DSPs, Second Edition is organized in three sections that cover enduring fundamentals and present practical projects and invaluable appendices. This updated edition gives readers hands-on experience in real-time DSP using a practical, step-by-step framework that also incorporates demonstrations, exercises, and problems, coupled with brief overviews of applicable theory and MATLAB® application.
Engineers, educators, and students rely on this book for precise, simplified instruction on use of real-time DSP applications. The book’s software supports the latest high-performance hardware, including the powerful, inexpensive, and versatile OMAP-L138 Experimenter Kit and other development boards.
Incorporating readers’ valuable feedback and suggestions, this installment covers additional topics (such as PN sequences) and more advanced real-time DSP projects (including higher-order digital communications projects), making it even more valuable as a learning tool.
