Is fixed point arithmetic important anymore

Started by Anonymous in comp.dsp9 months ago 5 replies

DO many people still do DSP in fixed point or are the processors mostly floating point and the DSP designer no longer needs to work in fixed point?

We all know that if you have an even function you have only cosine terms an= d an odd function only sine. When the function is neither even nor odd you = get both, or do you? This suddenly struck me. Suppose you have=20 f(x)=3Dsin(x) - this is odd since f(-x) =3D -f(x) f(x)=3Dsin(x)+1 is neither even nor odd. Now f(-x) ne -f(x) But this is just a dc level shift. Could you not therefo...

I just learned how to convert an audioclip from a 33.3 rpm vinyl record to 78 rpm, here: https://community.adobe.com/t5/audition/converting-33-recording-to-78-how/td-p/9448709?page=1 What I need is similar but probably harder. I am developing a web application based on a segment from a 2013 TV program. Only the first seconds are relevant: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8MF04X2aLBw T...

Forgive the ramble but I don't have to problem pinned down completely: I'm curious about the mathematical relationship between the harmonic series= and equal temperament. I'd like to write a program that quantizes glissa= ndos into the harmonic series similar to birdsong but, of course, by defini= tion, you can't transition between equal tempered intervals with the harmon= ic series. =20...

I ran across a problem in a DSP book that got me to thinking (the best kind= of problem). The author suggests that we can illustrate aliasing by sampl= ing an audio signal at a high frequency and then replacing samples with zer= oes to get a lower effective sampling frequency. For example, if we sample= at fs1 =3D 32 kHz and then keep every M =3D 4th sample (replacing the othe= r samples ...

I hope everyone is well. This one is long and possibly boring. Since now we are apparently all epidimologists I thought I'd give it a try along with everyone else. And I have three technical questions in the below. USA total, and USA by state statistics are available at the COVID Tracking Project among other places. I've seen a lot of actors draw conclusions from such data using pure...

I've been pleased with ease of use of the scipy.signal package for implementing bandpass filters: the `signal.butterworth()`, `signal.sosfilt_zi()` and `signal.sosfilt()` functions do just what I expect for a filter with constant center frequency and bandwidth. But now I'd like to make the frequency and bandwidth settings be time varying functions themselves, and I'm not sure how to
