(1) The SigmaDSP workshop for the 10th anniversary of IMDEA is inspired by the Digital Filtering course (M1 IMDEA). This course has evolved a lot during the last four years and involves the works with SigmaDSP processors. As the workshop is inspired by this new course, it is rather addressed to Alumni who did not follow this new version of course. It will be organized in a form of a practical, we will work with a DSP board (equipped with a SigmaDSP processor) and the Sigma Studio software + Python. The goal is to have fun during this workshop with real time audio signal processing. It is not necessary to have a precise knowledge of this type of DSP or to have experience with processors. The level is adapted to M1 IMDEA students. However, the Alumni who work daily with this type of DSP, or those who are well experienced with SigmaDSPs might get bored during this workshop.
