Digital Signal Processing System Design. Lab: VIEW-Based Hybrid Programming

This booklet combines textual and graphical programming to shape a hybrid programming process, allowing a more suitable technique of construction and interpreting DSP structures. The hybrid programming strategy permits using formerly built textual programming ideas to be built-in into LabVIEW's hugely interactive and visible setting, offering a better and speedier procedure for development DSP platforms.

Example text

Turkey’s leaders were determined to mark a new beginning and intended the move to physically and symbolically distance the new regime from the Ottoman capital and the social, political and economic order it represented. The contrast between the two capitals could not have been greater: Istanbul, a city of striking natural beauty, strategically positioned on a crucial passage between Asia and Europe, had been home to two empires for over a millennium. Ankara was a small, impoverished central Anatolian town which, despite its long history, had few attractions to offer.

The plans prepared for the fire zones could not be realised due to lack of interest on the part of their former owners, as the decreased population meant there was no stimulus for speculative profits in the real-estate market. In addition, the migration of non-Muslims meant that Istanbul’s population became homogeneous and, over time, the city lost its cosmopolitan identity. Consequently, the government was forced to rethink the urban planning of Istanbul. The French architect and town planner Léon-Henri Prost (1874–1959), who was responsible for the Paris Regional Plan of 1928–39, was 36 brought in to design the Istanbul Master Plan (1936–58).

While they are located in different regions of the country, the transformation of such cities occurs in the context of physical urban environments that share certain similarities. Their development serves to stimulate and accelerate a parallel transformation in the smaller cities on their peripheries. Their roots have thus been redefined as conceptual and physical routes intended to reflect urban transformation projects and urban scenarios, their impact on quality of life and the city in general, and the way in which they have interpreted their identities.
