What are the common method(s) for preventing aliasing of arbitrary waveforms generated within a DSP application? I understand that waveforms supplied as analog signals and presented to an ADC must first be lowpass filtered to remove harmonics above the Nyquist frequency, but what about generated waveforms? I know about BLIT and it won't be appropriate for completely arbitrary waveforms. I'...


Sampling a signal corrupted by AWGN

Let us assume that we have a bandlimited signal (with maximum frequency f_n) corrupted by additive white Gaussian noise. Before we can sample this signal, we pass the signal through an ideal anti-alias filter with cut-off frequency f_c > =f_n to avoid noise aliasing. The output of the anti-aliasing filter is fed into a matched filter matched to the symbol rate, (1/T)> =2f_n (i used f_n here because


Order of LPF at DAC output

Hi, In the case of an anti-aliasing filter used prior to an ADC, the filter order is derived from the cut-off frequency being twice the maximum frequency of the signal, stop-band attenuation and pass-band ripple defined by the ADC resolution. In the case of DAC, where LPF is basically used to smooth out the quantisation steps, how do we decide the filter order. It does seem intuitive that the be...

Hi, I am trying to design proper anti-aliasing filters for a new hobby project (digital control of a quad-rotor flying robot - see previous post for more questions). Here are the specifics: * My sensors are analog MEMS accelerometers and gyroscopes. I'll have at least 6 sensors to process, at least initially. * I will be using a microcontroller with 10-12 bit built-in ADCs to process t...

The following document says on page 5 an anti aliasing filter is used on the A/D input channels of an energy meter. Warning the document is 31 pages long, only click on the link if you have a broadband internet connection. http://focus.ti.com/lit/an/slaa409a/slaa409a.pdf. My understanding is you only need an anti aliasing filter if you want to reconstruct the signal or find the frequency c...


Anti-aliasing advice for de-interleaved signals

Hi everyone - this is my first post here. It's about time I joined a DSP forum. I need some advice related to a measurement system. The system samples at 1 kHz but between every sample the input to the DAQ is switched between two inputs. The result is that the acquired signal, at 1 kHz, is two interleaved signals at 500 Hz each. I would then like to go on to separate the two signals, which a...

Hello, I am trying to record 8 channels of analog data using an NI 6259 BNC Data acquisition system. The Daq system has a built in lowpass anti alias filter, but it has a much higher cut off frequency than what i need (i want a 500Hz cutoff). Does anyone know of a good 8 channel programmable/non programmable anti alias filter. I have also been suggested to use a software filter, but i though...


using IIR or FIR to implement the lowpass filter for downsampling?

For downsampling (decimation) one normally uses low pass filter before downsampling (anti-aliasing filter). I have thought that FIR is the best choice here for the low pass filter implementation for this case. But I was reading this page: http://www.dspguru.com/dsp/faqs/multirate/decimation and it said in 2.3.1 under "How do I implement decimation?" "To implement the filtering part...

Hey guys, I designed a system to acquire certain physiological signals and recorded these signals using a data acquisition card (agilent u2531a specifically). the problem is when designing the circuit i was unable to place an anti-aliasing filter before feeding the signal to the data acquisition device. The card does not have a software selectable filter at the input stage either. i
