J-DSP is “labware” that enables students to perform online simulations and computer experiments in Digital Signal Processing (DSP) courses over the Internet. J-DSP provides a user-friendly graphical user interface to enable students to establish and run educational DSP simulations, such as, digital filter design, signal analysis, speech signal processing, FFT-based spectral analysis, etc. In addition, J-DSP enables applications in courses such as communications, image processing and controls. The J-DSP interface enables visual programming of DSP tasks on a Java-enabled web browser. J-DSP provides a powerful, easy-to-use, compact environment for educational simulations that complements commercially available software packages.
