The Digital Signal
Processing Laboratories in Timisoara
, the Digital
Signal Processing Laboratories
in Timisoara are an
active component of the Computer and Software Engineering
Department, at the Politehnica University of Timisoara, with
three main functions:
- To support didactic activities (courses, seminars and laboratory
workshops) with students at
the Automatics and Computer Science Faculty
- To host and coordinate
diploma theses, master's dissertations and doctoral programs
- To develop research
and application projects within research contracts and grants established
with various institutions and companies.
The prime fields of expertise of DSPLabs are: Digital Signal Processing, Embedded
Systems and Signal Acquisition and Conditioning Systems.

Continuous increase of the number and quality of DSPLabs
team is considered as top priority. The true value of
DSPLabs consists of the quality, the experience and
the commitment of its team members. Consequently, DSPLabs
seeks to expand all its activities and research projects,
acquiring new and valuable partners, to use at a maximum
all the experience and the potential of its team.
Another priority is the constant development and improvement
of the equipment and technical support in the laboratory.
