A new graduate from electrical engineering education must know about digital signal processing (DSP) to find a secure place in the competitive jobs market. Although this topic can be taught theoretically, its importance comes from practical applications. Therefore, students must be equipped with appropriate tools. Fortunately, DSP platforms serve this purpose. At Yeditepe University, we established a laboratory to guide students in real-time digital signal processing applications. We selected a Texas Instruments TMS320C6713 DSK platform for this purpose. In this study, we provide several laboratory applications on this platform. We also provide more advanced projects developed by our students which emerged from these applications. We observed that this laboratory improved the understanding of theoretical DSP concepts.
