Define Discrete time signal, Continuous time signal and sampling

Discrete time signal:

discrete time signal is defined only at discrete instants of time.The independent variable has discrete values only, which are uniformly spaced.

Continuous time signal :

Continuous time signal defined for a continuous of values of the independent variable.In the case of continuous time signals the independent variable is continuous.

Example :

i.A speech signal as afunction of time
ii.Atmosphere pressure as a function of attitude.


Sampling is a process of converting continuous time signal into discrete time signal.

How can you convert an analog to digital signal

Convert an analog to digital signal :

1. The signal is first sampled, converting the analog signal into a discrete time continuous amplitude signal.

2. The amplitude of each signal sample is quantized into one of 2B levels, where B is the number of bits used to represent a sample in the ADC.

3. The discrete amplitude lvels are represent on encoded into distinct binary words each of length B bits.The process is depicted in fig(1 .Three distinct types of signals can be identified in the fig:-

4.The analog input signal.The's signal is continuous in both time and amplitude.

5.The sampled signal.The's signal is continuous in amplitude but defined only at discrete points in time.Thus the signal is zero except at time E = nT(The sampling instant).

6.The digital signal, X(n)(n=0,1,2......).This signal exists only at discrete points in time and at each time point can only have one of 2B values (discrete time discrete value signal).

Note the discrete time(That is sampled) signal and digital signal can each be represented as a sequence of numbers X(nT), or simply X(n) (n=0,1,2).

What is Digital Signal Processing?Write the Classification of Digital Signal Processing

Digital Signal Processing :

Digital signal processing is concerned with the digital representation of signals and the use of digital processor to analyze, modify or extract information from signals.

The Classification of Digital Signal Processing :

Has two types :

1. Analog signal processing(ASP)
2. Digital signal processing(ASP)

(1) ASP : If the input signal give to the system is analog then system does analog signal processing.

Ex : Resistor, capacitor or indicator, op-AMP etc

Describe the Digital Signal Processing

Describe the Digital Signal Processing :

If the input signal given to the system is digit then systems does digital signal procesing.

Ex : Digital computer, digital logic circuit etc.

** Most of the signals generated are analog in nature.Hence these signals are converted to digital form by the analog to digital convertor.Thus AD converter generates an array of signals and gives it to digital signal processor.This array of samples or sequences of samples is the digital equivalent of input.THe DSP perform signal processing operators like filtering, multiplication, transformation or amplitication etc operation over this digital signals.The digital output signal from the DSP is given to the DAC.

Write down the Advantages and Disadvantages of DSP over a analog signal processing(ASP)

The Advantages and Disadvantages of DSP over a analog signal processing(ASP) :

1. Physical size of analog systems are quite large while dgital processors are more compact and light in weight.

2. Analog systems are less accurate because of component tolerate ex, R, L, C and active component.Digital components are less sensitive to the environmental changes, noise and disturbances.

3. Digital system are most flexible as software programs and control programs can be easily modified.

4. Digital signal can be stores on digital hard disk, floppy disk or magnetic tapes.Hence becomes transportable.thus easy and lasting storage capacity.

5.Digital processing can be done offline.

6.Mathematical signal processing algorithm can be routing implemented on digital signal processing systems.Digital controllers are capable of performaing complex computation with constant accuracy at high speed.

7.Digital signal processing systems are upgradeale since that are softaware controller.

8. Possibility of sharing DSP processor between several tasks.

9.The cost of microprocessor, controllers and DSP processors are continuously.For some compex control function, it is not practically feasible to construct analog controllers.

1. Additional complex (A/D & D/A converters).

2.Limit in frequency.High speed AD converters are different to achieve in practice.In high frequency applications DSP are not preferred.

3. Its use files in transforming spectra into their corresponding waveform and in checking that the FFT has been correctly computed numbers of multiplication and additions required does not always result in a proportional increase in speed of computation.

4.Decreasing the multiplication may result in more programs code and more additions.

5.If hardware signal processing chips are to be used these will impulse their own limitations which may negate the improvement in the algorithm.

What is DFT?Compare betwen DIT and DIF algorithm of FFT


The direct calculation of DFT is computationally intense, and consequently slow, malang it unrealistic for real time digital signal processing.This limitation removed by the FFT algorithm. The FFT is simply an efficient method for computing the DFT.It is not only efficient but it also reduces round off errors by a factor of log N/N where N is the number of data samples. If we have N = 2n samples, then only Nlog2N arithmatic operations are required to compute the N-point DFT as compared to the N2 EFT operations used by direct computation of the DFT.

Compare betwen DIT and DIF algorithm of FFT :

For the DIF algorithm the order of the input data is unaltered but the output FFT sequence is bit reversed.

Both the DIF and DIT algorithms are in-place algorithm.By re-drawing them it is possible to maintain the order of both the inputs and the outputs, but the resulting algorithms are no longer in place algorithms and extra storage space is required.

The number of complex multiplication required for both algorithms is the same.Overall, there is little to choose between the two.
