I downloaded the P.863 POLQA source code from the ITU website. As far as I can see there is no guide to how the project should be built. So I created a new console application (empty project) in Visual Studio and added Main.cpp to the project. The first error I get when I try to build is: 1> ------ Build started: Project: polqa, Configuration: Debug Win32 ------ 1> Compiling... 1> Main.cp


Rayleigh vs. Nyquist

Consider the Nyquist criterion for sampling a continuous=20 waveform - 2x bandwidth - then the Rayleigh resolution=20 principle - peaks must separate by at least 1 wavelength. =20 Don't these look much analogous? =20 Especially as =CE=BB =3D 1/f Ruminating a bit more... Nyquist sampling can be=20 viewed as a mandate to sample each period, at least=20 twice. And, Rayleigh mandates that...


How to convert from PDM to PCM ?

I have a client who is using a MEMS microphone (SPM1423HM4H-B, 3.125MSPS). The output of the microphone is a PDM signal. Datasheet: http://media.digikey.com/pdf/Data%20Sheets/Knowles%20Acoustics%20PDFs/SPM1423HM4H-B.pdf In the client's test setup an emitter emits an acoustic signal. The emitted signal has frequency components around 40kHz. When I reviewed the client's setup, I noticed a c...


Future of Freescale parts

Since Freescale was bought by NXP and very possibly coming up, Qualcomm, have any of you heard or have any thoughts on the future of their DSCs ? Do you think they'll obsolete these or keep their promise (so I'm told) that the parts will have a life of at least 10 years after their introduction ? Some parts came out in 2014 I think it was. MC56F82748 for example. I don't know how...


Troubles in simulating sharp edges

Hi, I am fighting this problem for two days now: I want to simulate a passive mixer (50% and 25% Duty Cycle) which is basically a switch and hence can be modeled by multiplying the input with a rectangular waveform (or less harmonics). Suppose I have a clean sinusoidal LO x0 = sin(2*pi*100MHz*t). If I have sign(x0) (or alternatively Zero-Order-Hold with 2 samples per period) then I ge...

I'm a long time lurker, here because occasionally the math is interesting. But recently, I got a chance to do some embedded programming. I thank Tim Wescott for his intro to PID controllers. I'll get to that bit, but first there's some background material. There's a program at Community Boating in Boston, Mass. which since at least 2013 has let high school students design software for con...

Hello, I would like to ask why would we need the upsampling process for bits in Transmitter side? We do upsample then pass it through matched filter then modulate it, but why and how to choose the upsampling factor ? To be more precise, what would happen if we pass the bits through the matched filter without upsampling? This is in QPSK transmitter and can be generalized for all other digi...
