Welcome to the Institute of Digital Signal Processing!
DSV is an Institute within the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Duisburg-Essen. Our research interests can be classified in four major topics being illustrated here:
Our teaching activities range from fundamental signal processing, transmission, and modulation techniques towards wireless communication and localization. Further emphasis is given to teaching lab's for software programming and hardware development on state-of-the-art processor platforms.

Our motto is Think complete. It stands for the ambition to span our research from algorithms to prototypes with the ultimate goal to invent technical feasible solutions for challenging real-world scenarios.

DSV News

  • A new book "Digital Signal Processing for RFID" (authors: Feng Zheng and Thomas Kaiser) has been recently published by John Wiley. This book discusses the fundamentals of RFID and the state-of-the-art research results in signal processing for RFID, including MIMO, blind source separation, anti-collision, localization, covert RFID and chipless RFID. Aimed at graduate students as well as academic and professional researchers/engineers in RFID technology, it enables readers to become conversant with the latest theory and applications of signal processing for RFID. Table of contents and more about the book can be found here.

  • The conference paper "Implementation Aspects of a DSP-Based LTE Cognitive Radio Testbed", in the 10th International Conference CROWNCOM 2015 Doha Qatar, is selected to be published in the book "Cognitive Radio Oriented Wireless Networks" by Springer.

  • IET Microwaves, Antennas & Propagation, which dedicated a special issue of the journal for LAPC 2015, has invited the best researches from LAPC2015 including a conference paper by DSV "Terahertz Band: Analysis of Sounding Bandwidth and Center Frequency on Power Delay Profile Model".

  • DSV becomes a participant in COHERENT, a partial project within 5G PPP (5G Infrastructure Public Private Partnership). 5G PPP is a large-scale partnership which will deliver solutions, architectures, technologies and standards for the ubiquitous next generation communication infrastructures of the coming decade.

  • Trung Thanh Nguyen, PhD candidate at DSV, receives the Best Student Paper Award at IEEE CORAL 2015.

  • Han Vinck, Senior professor at DSV, receives the prestigious IEEE 2015 Aaron D. Wyner Distinguished Service Award.

  • DSV organizes a scientific workshop of "Chipless RFID System & Testbed" in the IEEE international Symposium on Antennas and Propagation APS/URSI 2015 which takes place in Vancouver, Canada, on 19-25 July 2015. More details about the workshop can be found here.

Extreme Bandwidth
Extreme Bandwidth systems occupy several Gigahertz up to several tens of Gigahertz of a wireless channel.
Cognitive Radio
A Cognitive Radio device can be seen as an extremely flexible Software Defined Radio platform.
Indoor Localization
Indoor Localization is a rather old but not yet well-solved challenging real-world scanario.
RFID Signal Processing
Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) is a wireless data transmission and reception technique for identification of objects.
