Hi everyone, What is the dirrerence between nyquist frequency, nyquist rate and nyquist bandwidth? I am sure that they dont point to the same concept. I know what is a nyquist frequency. But I am not able to understand the concept of the other two. I came across these terms while learning about pulse shaping filters (raised cosine filters). I tried to understand, but still I am not able to compl...

_TYPICALLY_ when looking to satisfy "Nyquist criterion" one looks to sample a waveform at > = a particular frequency. I've gut feeling that Nyquist implies more. I suspect it's more about information transfer rate. What question should I be asking. Signed ADMITTED *STUPIDENT*

Hi all, (1) I know the famous Nyquist Condition, f(t) with bandwidth B is sampled without aliasing if Fs> 2B. Today I read another thing called Nyquist Condition which says: for a continuous time signal x(t), take x(t) convolute with itself and then sample the obtained signal at Fs, if the sampled signal =delta[n], then Fs satisfies the Nyquist condition i.e: g(t)= x(t) (*) x

I've seen a lot of posts over the last year or so that indicate a lack of understanding of the implications of the Nyquist theory, and just where the Nyquist rate fits into the design of sampled systems. So I decided to write a short little article to make it all clear. It's a little longer than 'short', and it took me way longer than I thought it would, but at least it's done and hope...

Consider the Nyquist criterion for sampling a continuous=20 waveform - 2x bandwidth - then the Rayleigh resolution=20 principle - peaks must separate by at least 1 wavelength. =20 Don't these look much analogous? =20 Especially as =CE=BB =3D 1/f Ruminating a bit more... Nyquist sampling can be=20 viewed as a mandate to sample each period, at least=20 twice. And, Rayleigh mandates that...

To all you DSP mavens out there. I am looking for some references to distortions introduced by sampling = errors, especially sampling close to the Nyquist criterion. In all the = literature I have seen, reconstruction of a waveform is guaranteed if the sampling = meets the Nyquist criterion, that is sample rate > 2F. =20 There are lots of cases where the Nyquist criterion doesn't seem

is normalizing FFT magn spectrum different for Nyquist-frequency's bin?

Hi Experts, Let's say I compute the FFT magnitude spectrum of a variable X(n) in Matlab, where X(n) has indices n running from 1 to N. The magnitude spectrum is plotted for indices n = 2 (ignoring DC index n=1 for now) to n = N/2 + 1 (e.g. the Nyquist frequency bin). To get the normalization correct, should the Nyquist-frequency bin's magnitude be cut in half, because the Nyquist bin is n...

nyquist sampling rate

hi all. i have a signal of bandwidth 2 MHz on a carrier of 5 MHz. That means the Nyquist sampling rate is (5+2/2)*2 = 12 MHz. But I have heard that it is not a good idea to sample on or near nyquist rate because of the sinx/x roll of charactersistics of ADC. Please guide should i oversample it a little such as 16 or 20 MHz. I am working on a communication system so the system is performance ...

So when sampling a signal Nyquist (assuming first Nyquist zone) says you get half your clock rate. I have always followed the rule that you get closer to 40% of your clock rate. My question is what about chirps or swept FM. Lets assume you chirp from 100MHz to 500MHz then I would want to run my A/D at 1.25GHz to swallow this signal. If I chirp from 100MHz to 500MHz in 100ns that

Hi, Some help with explaining some digital communications stuff would be much appreciated. This is not really my field and I'm having a hard time understanding some concepts that are probably pretty basic. It's not really DSP related as such; it is more fundamental.
