I have 2 ADC channels of constant voltage measurement with small amount of high frequency noise only and no low frequency oscillations. The final signal should be the simple sum of those and denoised with the moving average in the end. Does the moving average denoising of each separate channel before final summation be more noise effective than applying summation first and do the final moving average later?
channel_1_noisy = channel_1_clean + noise_1 channel_2_noisy = channel_2_clean + noise_2 sum_noisy = channel_1_noisy + channel_2_noisy sum_denoised = moving_average(sum_noisy)
or sacrificing computer time for 2 moving average filtering operations?
channel_1_denoised = moving_average(channel_1_noisy) channel_2_denoised = moving_average(channel_2_noisy) sum_denoised = channel_1_denoised + channel_2_denoised
Having more channels will the effect be exaggerated?
