Hi All

Where is the best place to hire a programmer for a DSP/Laplace control
system

Thanks

Programmer is a tool. What you are looking for is probably a coder. To get a coder, go to a forest and find some orangutan.

I need to hire someone who understands DSP and laplace though

Actually, I was going to say that it sounds like you need a control systems expert who can write DSP code. Whether that's what you _want_ is another matter -- but unless you've got a control engineer in the wings designing the algorithms, that's what you need. They're out there. I'm one. Vladimir is one, too, although I like to think that I might be easier to work with.

From what I understand, Vlad's demeanor changes in remarkable ways when money is in the equation.

What does Laplace have to do with DSP? :) -- Randy Yates % "Watching all the days go by... Digital Signal Labs % Who are you and who am I?" mailto://yates@ieee.org % 'Mission (A World Record)', http://www.digitalsignallabs.com % *A New World Record*, ELO
I am after a control system based on frequencies, I need to gather
information on the time and frequency domain.

The data is fast and noisy, I made an assumption the fourier and laplace
will be the place to start.

You need to lay aside your preconceptions and find a good consultant. As a former consultant, I felt it was my duty to give the clients what they needed. That was often at odds with what they wanted. Tact usually won the day. Jerry -- Engineering is the art of making what you want from things you can get.

Randy is probably forgetting that the z transform (which is what is used to analyze sampled-time systems) can be derived from the Laplace transform. But normally when you talk about sampled-time control you talk about the z domain, unless you're specifically modeling the plant, or are trying to take an old continuous-time controller and recast it into a sampled-time one.

Every time we try to hire a DSP programmer or coder or whatever you want to call him/her, they always want to just consult. Hard to find one that wants to come to work every day. But then, I find it hard to hire anyone technical these days, period. They're evidently already working, retired, or so young all the do is play with their wee's (oui's ?) all day. boB
