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...

The significance of Upsampling at QPSK transmitter ?

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...

Resonant filters are often used for this purpose, but with a remark that they need some way of amplitude control, because the numeric errors can make it rise without control (gain > 1) or decay to 0 (gain < 1). I don't know about you, but for me it was a great surprise to discover that for certain "magic" values of amplitude the error integrated over the entire period is *exactly* 0, which


Good phase detectors for low-frequency software PLLs

I am simulating a software PLL intended to lock to mains, which here is 50Hz. The problem is, as usual, in selecting a good phase detector. For high frequency application the JK/D edge-sensitive digital phase detectors work very well, but for 50Hz the number of edges per second is low, hence the covergence is slow (or with significant ringing). OTOH, the basic multiplying detector is real-ti...

Hi all, I am faced with the following problem. I need to generate 1MHz square wave where the phase delay has to be controlled precisely and repeatedly. The duty cycle of this signal can be anywhere between 40%-60%. The delay should be able to be incremented in approx. 10ps steps and the resulting 1MHz square wave jitter needs to be around 100fs or better. I was thinking about usin
