The Fourier transform and the spectral estimation are useful in many practical engineering applications such as audio, industrial, telecommunication, measurement, military, automotive, and biomedical. The properties of the Fourier transform and their main theorems will be discussed and practically applied. The analytical fundamentals of the Fourier transform, the mathematical tools to extend them to digital periodic, non-periodic signals and images will be given. Typical spectral estimation will be introduced enabling to formally analyse systems. The effects of sampling in the time and frequency domain will be presented for the understanding of how these affect the practical analysis procedures. The optimized implementation on DSP by the Fast Fourier Transform will be also presented. Practical case of signal acquisition and its spectral analysis will be shown and its actual implementation will be proposed.
