CT Scan Basic Principle: CT Scan Basic Principle – Biomedicine is one area in which the use of digital signal processing techniques had had great impact. Computer tomography A recent advance in diagnostic analysis is represented by computer tomography (CT) scanning. While in standard radiography (X-rays) a 3-dimensional object (part of the body) is represented […]

## Modern Radar Systems Analysis

Modern Radar Systems Analysis: Modern Radar Systems Analysis are of great importance for both military and civil applications. The main problem of a typical radar system is the detection of return pulses; this substantially corresponds to determining the presence or absence of a pulse in noise. For such radar systems, the band width is usually […]

## Bandpass Analysis

Bandpass Analysis: There exist many practical situations in which multiple filtering and band pass analysis are required. In multiple filtering, one specific operation (for example low pass, high pass, band pass, etc.) is required to be performed on many signal channels presented as input data, e.g. in multiplex systems. In band pass analysis, many Bandpass […]

## Typical Digital Filtering Operations

Typical Digital Filtering Operations: Digital filters in fact can be applied in many different parts of a signal and image processing transmission system. Two typical examples of systems in which Typical Digital Filtering Operations can be inserted are Local digital processing systems (Fig. 15.42), and Digital communication system (Fig. 15.43) In the first system of […]

## Microprocessor Based Digital filter

Microprocessor Based Digital filter: Microprocessor Based Digital filter – The implementation of any digital filtering consists of a series of multiplications of samples of the input and/or output signals by constants, and of the additions of these products. Thus the main building blocks which have to be present in digital filtering hardware are the following: […]

In this Digital Filter Design Window Method, given a frequency function H(ejω) with period 2π, an FIR Digital Filter Design Window Method with a transfer function corresponding to H(ejω) can be obtained by simply […]

## Fast Fourier Transform Formula

Fast Fourier Transform Formula: The Fast Fourier Transform Formula is a computational tool which facilitates signal analysis, such as power spectrum analysis and filter simulation using digital computers. In digital analysis of signals, the continuous waveform to be analysed is first sampled and then converted to digits that represent the amplitude of the samples. The […]

## Frequency Domain Representation

Frequency Domain Representation: Frequency Domain Representation – A very important representation of discrete time systems can be obtained in terms of sinusoidal or complex-exponential signals. This is possible because the linear shift invariant systems have the interesting property that the response to a sinusoidal or complex exponential input is also sinusoidal or complex-exponential, having the […]

Digital systems fundamentals Properties of 1-D: A Digital systems fundamentals can be defined as an operator which transforms an input sequence { x(n)} to an output sequence {y(n)}A system of this type is said to be linear, indicated by the symbol L, if and only if the principle of superposition holds. This is equivalent to […]

## Sampling Theorem

Sampling Theorem 1-D: One of the most important applications of digital filtering is the processing of sequences of samples derived from continuous or analog signals. This is made possible due to the results and implications of the sampling theorem. This theorem can be stated as follows: “A continuous analogue function x(t) which has a limited […]

Discrete Functions Equation are defined only for discrete values of their variables, that is, they are sequences of numbers. These numbers can be obtained as quantised samples of continuous functions (representing an analog signal or image) […]

Digital Filter Design: It has been seen that control of the band width of a circuit or signal is of paramount importance in optimising the measurement of a signal. Formerly band width control was implemented using frequency, selective active or passive networks of resistors, capacitors and inductors. However, the results obtained were somewhat less than […]
