### Why are all baseband signals low-pass?

A baseband signal is just a signal that has not been used to modify a carrier signal. Now, I have noticed that all baseband signals are low-pass too. Why is that? I can understand why digital baseband ...

### What does the bandwidth of a medium even mean?

Whenever the bandwidth of a medium linking two devices is greater than the bandwidth needs of the devices, the link can be shared. Multiplexing is the set of techniques ... Forouzan, Data ...

### Bandwidth of Information Signal

I have trouble finding the bandwidth of a signal. Say I have an info bearing signal m(t)=sinc(2t/pi). I found the fourier transform of the sinc function and found that the angular frequency was 1/pi. ...

### Relationship between signal rate, data rate, minimum bandwidth

I need to understand the relationship between bit rate, signal rate and minimum bandwidth. I read in a textbook that We define three cases for relationship between bit rate and signal rate for ...

### Cutoff frequency condition of input signal so that it can be reconstructed , given frequency response (Answer explanation?)

For the following system: We have: $$r(t) = s(t) + Ks(t-\tau)$$ where $|K|< 1$, with the following impulse response $h(t)$ and frequency-response $H(f)$: $$h(t) = \delta_0(t) + K\delta_0(t-\tau)$$ ...

### DAC sampling rate when using DSSS/CDMA

I'm currently not sure if I understood DSSS correctly. Following example: We have a shared RF network with around a thousand of users and we want to use CDMA. The RF link should allow the streaming of ...

### Measuring thermal noise of RLC circuit

I am confused about Johnson-Nyquist noise. Specifically, where does bandwidth come in? Thermal noise voltage is usually defined as something like: V^2=4kT∫R(f)df, integrated over a bandwidth. I am ...

### Does bandwidth include negative frequencies?

I've seen countless definitions of bandwidth that disregard negative frequencies. Is that done due to the symmetrical nature of a certain signal eg. a cosine or due to the inherent lack of meaning ...

### How Does the RMS of White Noise Change with Sampling Frequency?

There is an analog system which includes the continuous-time linear equalizer (CTLE). With some .noise analysis the power-spectral density (PSD) of the noise in that system is provided. So let's not ...

### Clarification on video about frequency deviation in phase modulation bandwidth

I am watching this video and at 7:12 he calculates the frequency deviation $\Delta f = f_{c}f_{m}A_{m}$ where the $c$ underscript is for "carrier" and the $m$ underscript is for "...

### Minimum Channel Bandwidth for PCM

Please check if my answer to GATE IN 2010 question 11.20 is correct/can be improved upon. So, every $\frac{1}{f_s}$ sec, a sample is taken. The signal amplitude is quantized into $2^n$ levels such ...

### In the RMS bandwidth equation, why do we have the energy of the signal in the denominator?

In the following equation: $$B_{\rm rms}^2 = \frac{\displaystyle\int_{-\infty}^\infty f^2\lvert G(f)\rvert^2df}{\displaystyle\int_{-\infty}^\infty \lvert G(f)\rvert^2df}.$$ It is not clear why do we ...

### spectral bandwidth of QPSK signal

When running the MATLAB QPSK transmitter and receiver example (found here: QPSK Tx and Rx Example) you can see on the plot of the spectrum that the bandwidth is ~80kHz. If we double click on ...

### Bandwidth transmission for uniform PCM using m-ary PPM

I have a uniform PCM whose bandwidth is W = 1Hz and n = 12 bits, i.e. the transmission bandwidth B_T = n*W = 12Hz. Given this features of the signal, I need to calculate the minimum transmission ...

### LTI system tradeoff between gain, bandwidth, and delay

For first-order LTI systems, the gain-bandwidth constant is often discussed. I've seen the claim that in general, gain and bandwidth don't directly trade off with each other as much as delay. For an ...

### Bounds of higher order derivative of bandlimited signals

Here is a bandlimited function f(t) with bandwidth Ω: The function f(t) is bounded in [-A,A]. Then the bound of the derivative of f(t) is bounded as: |f'(t)|≤2πΩA. So, what is the bound of its n-th ...
