Hi r b-j, I am trying to compute SNR with the method you've suggested. This time I am trying upconversion of a signal from 8KHz to 44.1KHz. I have implemented a four stage SRC code in matlab (with ratios 3/2, 3/2, 7/5 and 7/4 with filter taps 414, 54, 84 and 70 respectively using remez algorithm). I multiply the output by a factor of 441 (3*3*7*7) in time domain to compensate for interpolation stage losses. The frequency response seems to be good. But still I am getting SNR not more than 30-40 DB. I am sure that I am not making a mistake in taking the delay into account. Ray had suggested to check 'Single precision float round-off error'. But I am using simple matlab floating point variables, which are by default double-precision. (Ray, please correct me if I am failing to understand your point.) Please help me out, I am very eager to see 100+DB SNR!

I have started looking for interpolation methods. Would you like to suggest/give me related docs or book? Govind This message was sent using the Comp.DSP web interface on www.DSPRelated.com

The documentation on the analog devices sample rate conversion chips has some good theory info. Start here and also check out the datasheets for the parts mentioned: http://www.analog.com/en/content/0,2886,765%255F807%255F9690,00.html By the way, if it were me, I would do this in one stage rather than 4. It is much simpler to implement that way (though probably requires more memory, but that's not generally an issue in Matlab). -- Jon Harris SPAM blocker in place: Remove 99 (but leave 7) to reply "Govind" <govind_s@conceptemsys.com> wrote in message news:WoqdnUGsSq4auN_eRVn-gQ@giganews.com...> >Govind <govind_s@conceptemsys.com> wrote: >> >>> I am trying to compute SNR with the method you've >>> suggested.
