How to find frequency and phase shift in the recorded wave( .wav file )

I am working on BPSK at frequecies near 20 kHz with a sample rate of 44100 Hz. We can't afford sample rates above than this due to computational complexities. Have found that the frequency of ...

What can we understand when we increase the $N$-point DFT for a given signal?

I have an input sequence $$x(n)=\cos(0.48\pi n)+\cos(0.52\pi n).$$ I am determining its spectrum (amplitude of DFT values) based on the finite number of samples. For Example : Taking the first $10$ ...

How many taps does an FIR filter need?

I am looking to design a set of FIR filters to implement a low pass filter. I am also trying to reduce the latency of the signal through the filter so I am wondering what the minimum number of taps I ...

FFT of a $N$-length real sequence via FFT of a $N/2$-length complex sequence

I am doing FFT. The one way I did is to put real part in one array and the imaginary part as zeros and then calculated the FFT. But this take up lots of resources. Now I want to calculate FFT by ...

Is digitization of discrete valued signal necessary for it to be processed?

While reading the book DSP by Proakis and Manolakis i came across the concept of digitization of signals. The Author states that Digitization(rounding it off to nearest integer) of signal is ...

Does sampling in the frequency domain cause time-domain aliasing?

Let's say I have an impulse response $h[n]$. I analyze the power spectrum of that impulse response similar to fourier transformed $h[n]$ corresponding to roughly $H[f]$. Now I compare $H[f]$ with ...
