Delete frequency components with FFT and IFFT [duplicate]

I have a signal in Matlab defined by signal and t. As it is a noisy signal, I want to delete every component below a certain ...

About designing digital filters [duplicate]

I'm currently using MATLAB's fdatool for filter design. Using that tool, I can easily design different kind of filters. For example, let's take a band-pass FIR filter with 10-40 Hz passband, and 5-10 ...

Is ideal band pass filter (brick wall filter) linear phase? [duplicate]

I'm very new in digital signal processing. I have multiple sensors and the way I filters the signals in post processing is: take FFT of the signals. put zero on out range of interesting frequency (...

Remove Noise from Physiological Signals [duplicate]

I have collected a set of physiological signals through emg sensors. I will link at the end of the post an example (10 sec.) of a signal collected on zygomatic muscle. When I analyzed these data, I ...

Beginner's question on LPF, Need for Sinc and windowing [duplicate]

As a student who has never constructed any real world DSP application, I am inclined to ask the following. Convolution in time domain is multiplication in frequency domain. For low pass filtering, ...

Why do we not use square filters without windows? [duplicate]

This question may sound like "why do we use window functions", but it's not. So here it's: What we currently do: If we have a function $g(t)$ and its Fourier transform $G(f)$, and a window $W(f)$ and ...

Advantage of using nonideal filter in purely digital application [duplicate]

Say I'd like to bandpass filter a signal with corner frequencies 1 kHz and 2 kHz (i.e., passes signals between 1 kHz and 2 kHz and suppresses other frequencies) using software like MATLAB. Intuition ...

Attenuate frequency bin in FFT array resulting in artifacts [duplicate]

Am trying to remove noise for certain frequency bands by attenuating freqeuncy bins in the FFT array. However this results in artifacts to be formed, where there are clicking sounds in between each ...

What happens if I zero out the initial terms of the fft output and take inverse fft? [duplicate]

I am new to signal processing domain. When I run fft on data of length 1000, I get 1000 complex numbers. Now, if I want to extract the low frequency information or signal approximation, I take the ...

Bringing the signal into the same level [duplicate]

I have a signal, shown in the attachment (blue one). As you can see that the latter part of my signal has a higher dc offset. I want to bring the signal into the same level. I have tried eliminate the ...

DFT: Zeroing frequency bins resulting in strange values at the end of my signal [duplicate]

I have an issue with my DFT. I think that I got how to fix it, but I lack the intuition on why there was a problem, and why my solution fixes it. I have to apply DFT to a noisy signal. The second ...

What is wrong with band passing by inverse Fourier transforming a section of a signal's frequency spectrum? [duplicate]

If the question is unclear, here is what I mean in Python using scipy.fftpack: ifft(fft(arr)[x:y], len(arr)) What is wrong with this method of band passing?

Why do we use window in time domain rather than do FFT modify the spectrum and than inverse FFT

I thought that DSP would be done by using FFT of portions of a signal, modify the samples that result from FFT (since they represent the spectrum of our signal + noise) and remove any unwanted signals ...

Removing values from FFT result same as filtering?

I don't quite understand why the textbooks say it is impossible to implement an ideal low pass filter. If I was to take the FFT of a discrete signal x[n], with Matlab's fft function I'd be returned ...

Which image filter can be applied to remove gridded pattern from corrupt jpegs?

I have around 1,400 jpegs that have been corrupted somehow and have lost the backup images. They all seem to have the same gridded pattern of lines over each (i.e. the gridding does not shift from ...
