Hello, I am trying to compute the antilog of a fixed point number 'x' -> 10^(x), to be precise. I do not want to use a look-up table for the same. One way this can be done is to use the Taylor series expansion of 10^(x). Can someone point me to the right place? Also any suggestions on improved (in the number of execute cycles, memory is not much of a constraint - only enough to cancel t

Hi I am trying to design a IIR filter using a 16-bit fixed point DSP. I need to calculate the coeff in the form of second order sections. I would like to do this with MATLAB.

I dont want this as I have seen other programs such a...


Fixed-point algorithm for exponential function fitting for an embedded application

Hello, We are seeking a "light" algorithm performing exponential function (y=A*exp(-k*x)) fitting. A typical curve is composed of 200 16-bits integers. As the code should be executed by a MCU, fixed-point is preferable but if floating-point is required for accuracy reasons, it could also be implemented if the amount of calculation is compatible with a reasonable processing time (few hundre...

This post is a retake on the 'quantization of filter coefficients' issue. Let me present the issue in the following. I have designed a filter (notch, cut-off 55.7Hz) which is a bi-quad. The transfer function is : H(z) = 1 + (-1.992)*z^-1 + (0.994)*z^-2 -------------------------------- 1 - (-1.836)*z^-1 - (0.852)*z^-2 Now I am implementing this filter on a 16-bit fix...

Hi all, I'm new to DSP programming. So far my asm program works fine on TI's TMS320LF2407 DSP. However, I have to extend my program and need to divide two 10 bit integer numbers (a, b) which are not related to each other and change over time (they're obtained through 2 ch AD conversion). In most cases b > a. Does anyone know a simple algorithm to compute the result x = a/b? The DSP provid

Hi, I want to implement a Kalman-filter on a DSP56F8323. To do that I need to compute a matrix (9x9). Using Gauss-Jordan algorithmen I need to divide a lot of figures. In my eyes there is a problem using fixed point arithmetics. Its not allowed to divide a smaller figure through a bigger one because the figure range is -1 to 0.999 and it would result in bigger than 1. I am DSP newby so it would...
