BATON ROUGE – To support education and research in the Division of Electrical and Computer Engineering, PreSonus Audio Electronics has pledged $200,000 to establish a digital signal processing, or DSP, laboratory at LSU.
DSP is a specialized branch of mathematics that performs analysis and processing of binary representations of analog signals. Advances in digital technology have enabled DSP systems to accomplish tasks inexpensively and efficiently that are difficult or impossible using analog technology. The DSP laboratory will provide LSU College of Engineering students a state-of-the-art environment for learning those skills required in industry settings.
“As a graduate of LSU Engineering and a Louisiana entrepreneur, I believe that investment in our home-grown technical workforce is essential in our efforts toward economic growth,” commented Jim Odom, co-founder of PreSonus. “Our intention for this grant is to assist LSU Engineering in becoming a top 10 destination for technical education. The burgeoning industry of digital everything will require highly skilled and trained individuals, and LSU is perfectly positioned to meet this challenge.”
