Hi all, Recently I've been faced with a problem of very accurate sine wave frequency measurement. Let me give you some details: I've got a sensor which outputs measurement result as a frequency of a sine wave. The frequency of the signal is within 149.4kHz - 150.6kHz range and is very stable, as sensed parameter changes very slowly. Say the frequency can change no more than tens of

Hello, I am having some questions related to FFT while using inbuilt Matlab or Octave FFT functions. These functions seem to take N samples of the signal that needs to be analyzed. Are there any requirement on the length of the input signal that needs to be fed into. A signal can be made up of many frequencies, so, it is obvious that a signal of N length can have any or all of the follow...


Adding noise given by Noise Factor

Hello, For a system level simulation of an RF receiver in MATLAB I would like to specify Noise Factor (NF) and IIP3 for a block (e.g. the complete receiver). My signals are represented as vectors of real numbers, heavily oversampled. I am confused: Is it best to represent the signals as voltages, currents or powers? In terms of IIP3 this is rather straight forward: My signals are vol...

This group is comprised of mathematicians, who enjoy puzzles, so... You are stranded in a desert, at a base station, looking to get home. There's a rescue truck, 11 miles away. Along the route, there is a series of rest stations, one at each mile. To make this long trip, you need water. You have a wagon, which can carry up to 7 liters. You drink one liter of water during the hik...


Confused with digital modulations

Hello, I am studying implementation of a BPSK modulator and demodulator for radio applications and I am very confused. From what I have read, in the transmitter section, the binary data is given to a BPSK mapper, which maps to bits to one symbol ( 0 =cos(wt), 1=-cos(wt) ). But I had read we are doing pulse shaping because we cannot transmit square pulses through the channel, but we are n...

I have a DSP puzzle that has to do with Android phones. I developed an Android app that I sell to piano tuners. It samples the microphone audio at 44100 samples per second and performs typical frequency analysis with an FFT, which is actually graphed for the user to see, to assist in piano tuning. The problem is that on a very few devices (actually only one model that I know for sure: t...

Presumably, most here are familiar with the concept of undecidability. My question is simple, though perhaps not the answer: Godel published his results first, hence does Turing's non-computability theorem (the halting problem), follow as a corollary? What is the relationship between these seemingly parallel theorems? -- Rich

If anyone feels this is an unacceptable misuse of one of these groups -- speak up, I'll take it into account next time. I'm down to just one customer, with a couple of possibilities in the future but nothing certain. I vastly prefer to have two or three at a time, to fill my time in the natural pauses that happen in any project, and to keep a variety of work in front of me. So if you'...

would like to share one thing i learned in a hardway about CIC interpolator. many of us do matlab model before trying any fixed-point coding. incidentally, i had no fixed-point tool set with my matlab. this forced me to write a plain (floating point) code for my CIC integrator an comb. implementing this was straight forward. i also implemented fixed-point code in C. interesting observation w...
