Hello, I've been reading a lot about increasing ADC quantization gain through oversampling and then applying an interpolation filter. I understand that for every 4x oversampling you can increase the SNR by 6 dB or 1-Bit and that lowers the quantization noise floor. However, say my ADC is sampling two tones at 1 kHz and 2 kHz using a 14-bit theoretical ADC. Theoretically my SNR is 6 dB * ...

I am quantizing an FIR filter's coefficients into 8-bit signed integers, which will be coded into hardware. How do I describe the errors in the quantization in my report? I only know of frequency response before and after quantization. TIA

## Quantization of bands in frequency domain?

Hi all - Apologies for what is probably a horribly naive question - but Google has been no help and I'm extraordinarily rusty with this stuff at the moment. Say I have a signal sampled at a depth of 8bits, 10kHz, and I take an N-Point FFT. I understand there will be N/2 bands, each representing a width of 10000/N Hz, but what will be the quantization/depth of the levels represented by each b...

Hi I am working on a project about noise suppression. Part of the algorithm that I am designing is based on vector quantization. I am wondering which training algorithm I should use? Here is an example: If I have a 3D-vector (x,y,z) and each coordinate of this vector is random but limited to an interval from say 0 to C where C is a constant, the directional variance will not be mo...

Hi, When we compute the true loglikelihood ratios in bit interleaved co-ordinate modulation, it has a factor of the noise variance and hence the LLRs can be very large when the SNR is high(or equivalently the noise variance is low). The LLRs need to be quantized to be sent to the decoder. Can anyone explain or proivde a reference to the criteria used for LLR quantization. Should th

Hi, can someone tell me (a hint perhaps) why there is a larger effect on the filter response after coefficient quantization in IIR filters than FIR filters. Several books mention this but do not go on to explain it in detail. Is it because of the feedback term in IIR filters? or is the coefficient quantization sensitive to poles than zeros?

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...

## Phase of harmonics after Quantization of sinusoids

If I look at a spectrum of a uniformly quantized sinusoid, there are harmonics at multiples of the input frequency. Does someone know how can I predict the phase of those harmonics for the case of single as well as two tones inputs? As quantization is not a linear process, therefore the phase of the harmonics should not be just multiple of the fundamental's phase. The literature mostly talks abo...

hi all, I'm doing some tests with mu-law companding. I have a speech signal with Fs = 16 kHz, 16-bit. I test on 2 methods to encoding in 8/4/2 bit: - 1st methode: using uniform quantization 256/ 16/ 4 levels. - 2nd methode: using mu-law to compand sigal before, then using uniform quantization 256/ 16/ 4 levels, then using mu-law inrerse. In all three cases, the SNR with mu-law companding ...

## Question about quantization

I've got transfer function H(z) and determined location of poles and zeros. How can I recalculate location of poles and zeros using a minimum quantization level of 0.125 for direct form II, cascade, and parallel structures? Where can I find sample solutions for similar problems? Any online tutorial? Is there any Matlab function which solves this problem? Thanks in advance.

Hopefully some of you guru's here can set me straight here. In an attempt to reduce quantization spurs, I have read about dithering. I have seen wideband dithering and narrowband dithering. All of this is done in the analog domain prior to the sampling. My question is: Why can we not simply add a random LSB (+/- 1) to each of the samples AFTER sampling to reduce quantization spurs ? ...

## IIR filter structures and coefficient quantization sensitivity

Hi, I'm trying to implement a high order IIR filter on a fixed point ARM processor using a parallell second order section filter structure. I'm using 16 bit coefficients and 32 bit filter states. I think I'm on the safe side when it comes to quantization noise, but so far I have been using a Direct Form 1 implementation of the 2nd order sections and the frequency response after coefficient q...

Hi, I'm building a quantization table to use with the IMG_quantize function on a TI DSP to quantize the DCT of an image. The function basically does this: short quantValue (short v) { int q, round; round = 1 < < (shift - 1) q = (v * recip + round) > > shift return (short) q; } I used the algorithm to find the reciprocal on Jones page: http://www.cs.uiowa.edu/~jon

Hi, As my research project, I'm going to study a variation of VQ when applied to speech signals. As a starting point, I'm trying to implement what I understand as the "standard" vector quantization, so that I can later implement the extensions I want to study, and compare the results. However, I'm having a hard time getting results of a minimally acceptable quality (I could post a...

How does one design the optimum uniform scalar quantizer for a specific Gaussian input? All the literature I can find on quantization seems to deal with analyzing specific quantizers, quantization noise probability densities and power spectra etc., but I cannot seem to find any specifics on just the design - selecting delta. I have seen it derived under entropy constraints, but I would ...

Hi I am trying to do vector quantization for noise-free speech segments.

Hi! I'm simulating a Direct Form 1 biquad using fixed point arithmetic in Matlab, and I'm having some problems with frequency response errors at low frequencies compared to floating point filtering. The errors are not due to coefficient quantization, but originates from the quantization after the accumulator in the feedback path of the biquad. I'm simulating a 24-bit architecture (I'm not t...
