Summer school is rough.
Electrical Network Analysis (ENA) and Signals and Systems are not easy classes. I find myself spending quite a bit of time in the books with little time left over for tinkering around. Between keeping up with regular life and cramming convolutions and Fourier transforms in my head, my spare time is quite limited.
ENA has been a little rough. Summer classes are accelerated and I’m fighting to keep up with it. On the other hand, I’ve really enjoyed signals and systems. We finally started to put the theoretical background together with more practical applications. I’ve always heard terms like “aliasing” and “lowpass and bandpass filters” thrown around, but I honestly had no idea what they meant. Getting to see how seemingly crazy math turns into a practical device that has wide-sweeping applications is really fascinating. Signal processing seems difficult to say the least but it explains so much of our modern computing.
Anyway, this was a terribly short update. Hopefully I’ll have some time to work on a few projects in the next few weeks!
