We have a requirement to measure a 32.768 KHz TTL output quickly and with a certain accuracy. If one used an N-bit ADC sampling at F samples per second, what is the relationship between T_m and F_delta, where T_m is the minimum measurement time (say, in seconds) for a maximum frequency error of F_delta (say, in PPM)? For this discussion assume the frequency is stable over the measureme...

I am of opinion that "free" can "cost too much". My email provider is having 'problems'. I've dealt with them for decades - they were my ISP in dial-up days. Their solar system headquarters is less than 5 miles from my home in rural SW Missouri. I just did not realize how much I would miss email. Are there any ethical free email providers. TIA

Often you see questions on social media such as - find the answer to 9/3(1+2) (they usually use the divide symbol which nobody uses of course so= I have replaced it with a slash) and they spout on about order of operations and so left to right the answer= is 3x 3 =3D9 and the catch is that people answer 9/9 =3D 1. Ha, they don't= know their order of operations which was agreed by conve...

Dear All, I have a fixed data rate PSK receiver which works fine. Now I have to design a variable data rate PSK receiver. The Block Diagram looks like this(Hope ASCII Art works): ADC-> AGC-> RRC-> Complex Mixer-> Coarse/Fine Carr.Recov-> Timing Rec-> BPSK/QPSK | | NCO---------------- When I try to add

Hello everyone. Could anyone explain please the next issues we know that there are no negative frequencies, so during real rf mixing the"-" frequencies fold back to positive F axis. so why during complex RF mixing the "-" Frequencies exist? I think that I understand that the complex signal can have "-" frequencies, but if we look at x(t)*cos and x(t)*-sin terms as ar real rf mixing

## replace zeroes with red noise before 2D FFT?

I came across a claim in another forum for dealing with 2D FFT where there are dead traces (data is t-x domain before FFT). So if there is a dead channel, fill it with red noise whose amplitude matches roughly the other channels, then do the 2D FFT. Supposedly this minimises artefacts. Plausible?

## Frequency (Doppler) shift problem

Hi all, I am processing satellite transmissions and assume no prior knowledge of the Doppler shift. Using a brute force technique I have been able to extract coarse Doppler and fit a polynomial. I wish to be able to use the polynomial to remove the Doppler components from the signal but have come up against a problem. Below is some (modified) code which illustrates the issue I'm

Hello all: Though my question is not in the strict DSP, I cannot find another appropriate forum to discuss about it. As a hobby, I am interested in a PLL simulation. On numerous tutorials, I know there are current sources in a charge pump type phase detector. I realize that the current source makes the voltage cross the capacitor linearly increase. It is seen the Laplace transform of the RC ...

## Does decimating after Sampling mean loss of data?

Dear All, I use an AD9371 board and on it the ADC samples the input at 1228 MHz, then the sampled data is decimated by 5 and a downsampling FIR filter reduces the output rate to 122.8 MSPS. This is what I have as an input to the FPGA where demodulation occurs. The signal to be demodulated is an 80 MHz wide QPSK modulated one. For ideal demodulation I need a 320 MSPS (x4 symbol rate). My quest...
