Well, I couldn't find better expression to say what I want :(

I'm looking for a DSP study source, that doesn't dive too deep, and covers "all" or most of DSP topics, I just want to have an overview of it, then, as a next step, it will be easier to go deeper.

A PDF file, an online file, video course, tutorial, ... I french we say "Résumé de cours" or "course summary" but it didn't give me what I expected!

Plz, for those having no answer, plz, tell me how to ask about it and google it

Thanks in Advance


There are some books (some free) that cover most DSP topics with a claim of easy approach, probably they cover the most important fundamentals:

1- Understanding Digital Signal Processing_R.Lyons

2- Scientist and Engineer's guide to DSP_S.W.Smith (free from web)

3- Signal Processing First_McClellan

    $\begingroup$ i sorta remember when the #3 came out (i think it was ca. 1990 when i was teaching at U of Southern Maine). i am not sure i agree with the premise (i sorta like Oppenheim's Signals and Systems approach that develops continuous and discrete-time LTI principles together in parallel, otherwise it's all MATLAB and i would like to see some early pedagogical use of circuits and op-amps in the lab.) $\endgroup$ – robert bristow-johnson Jul 14 '17 at 3:19

    $\begingroup$ @robertbristow-johnson I agree with you. I've sorta seen it quite recently, and I found it a pretty interesting but not a very serious (in the formality of electrical engineering sense) introduction to DSP . But I thought the OP wanted some broad and easy going materials (books) so I sorta included it. PS: Originally I hated Oppenheim's Signals&Systems book as a student. It's the DTSP which made me like the subject and the author. Later I found Signals&Systems very useful ! $\endgroup$ – Fat32 Jul 14 '17 at 12:13

    $\begingroup$ I helped Rick by doing some proof-reading for him on a couple of editions of #1. I found it to be a refreshing take on O&S and the lads doing things "more rigorously". $\endgroup$ – Peter K. Jul 14 '17 at 14:11

    $\begingroup$ @PeterK That's really a nice book. The best seller of its kind on Amazon. DSP is a strange subject; one has quite different views on it before and after "Understanding" it. So Rick L. does an interesting job there :-) $\endgroup$ – Fat32 Jul 14 '17 at 14:19
