## What happens to the autocorrelation when the underlying signal is squared/cubed?

Hi, Suppose I have the autocorrelation function which results from Gaussian white noise passing through a 1st order LTI system, analytically: Ryy(tau) = 1/RC sigma^2/2 exp(-|tau|/RC) How does Rzz(tau) look when z=y^3 ? Peter PS: In the absense of the LTI system, trivially Rzz=delta(0) * 15*sigma^6/2 ... from E((x^3)^2)=E(x^6)=15*sigma^6

Hi, In the Russian culture it's traditional to formally remember a deceased family member, or friend, 40 days after the day of their passing. Today it's been 40 days since Vladimir Vassilevsky left this world. My memory of Vlad, as his friends called him, is that he was a highly skilled engineer. Over the years of exchanging signal processing ideas with Vlad I had the distinct...

Text books are filled with info on the DAC zero order hold and it appears on the internet everywhere. Basically its TF is (1-exp(-sT))/s where T i sampling interval. Usually they take 1-z^-1 in cascade with the system transfer function and 1/s is merged into the system. If the system is G(s) then they convert (1/s)G(s) to the z domain. Doesn't this seem a little old fashioned nowada

Dear DSP Gurus, I have to demodulate a 50 MHz wide (3 dB bandwidth) OQPSK modulates Signal. The Signal properties are: OQPSK Modulated AWGN channel Has Doppler Shift (5 KHz/sec max) Pulse shaping filtered (0.35) Viterbi+RS The HW I am using is: Zero IF Receiver ADC on I&Q channels (12 bit output) Has a signal processor (Output is IQ corrected,DC Removed,AGC) The Output is: I ...

Hi All, I have studied three diff kinds of transforms, The laplace transform, the z transform and the fourier transform. As per my understanding the usage of the above transforms are: Laplace Transforms are used primarily in continuous signal studies, more so in realizing the analog circuit equivalent and is widely used in the study of transient behaviors of systems. The Z transform is the ...

## CIC Decimation Filter "zero crossing" distortion

Hi, I am designing a simple decimation filter, with decimation rate at 5 (1st stage) and 20 (2nd stage). N=2 and 3 for each stage. Bin=1. Bout=16. Input Sampling frequency at 50 KHz and output at 500 Hz. The fixed point matlab simulation (2's complement) shows that with Sinewave input at 5Hz, there are a few "flat" "zero" crossing points in each sinewave cycle. I check t

From a known genre of puzzles - "what's my hat?" - appropriate for this group, as it involves information, if not theory - Three men, blindfolded, each wear a hat. H or T is written on each, according to coin tosses. The blindfolds are removed. Each sees the others' labels, but not his own. All must simultaneously, and immediately, guess his own label, or pass. No communicat...

Hi, Things have been pretty quiet hear for the last few days. Having nothing more useful to post, here's a joke about Program Managers; A program manager has been working his team extra hard and as a small reward offers to take two of the engineers out to lunch. Walking to the restaurant they trip over a magic lamp and out pops a genie offering them each one wish...
