"Digital Signal Processing: A Practical Guide" is intended for those who work in or provide components for the wide variety of industries that use digital signal processing (DSPs). While the engineers who implement applications using DSP must be very familiar with the technology, there are many others who can benefit from a basic knowledge of its fundamental principals. For the latter, this book provides a basic tutorial on DSP.
Here, in Part 5, we go right from Radar Basics through to Pulse Doppler Radar and Synthetic Array Radar. Enjoy!

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
