### Find Bandwith from Spectral Efficiency and Eb/N0

to give you a short intro of why I am asking here. My Uni is offering a TeleCom Lecture, I love the topic but all they teach is electronics, the exercise sheets are still TeleCom, we get no supporting ...

### Information in GFSK signal

I was measuring a Bluetooth LE Signal, particullary a Channel with center frequency 2402 MHz and Bandwidth of 2 MHz, 2401 - 2403 MHz. Those measurement points are just the highest peaks. In the ...

### Should I filter before calculating power, if I'm looking for relative changes in power?

I am building a "scanner" sort of program, which reads IQ samples from an rtl-sdr stick, and keeps track of the power on certain frequencies, in certain bands. I am interested in detecting activity ...

### Varying signal bandwidth with two signal generators

I would like to emulate a signal with bandwidth (like BPSK) for some testing, but the two signal generators I have access to do not have any BPSK options installed. If I know the frequency (2462MHz) ...

### Calculating a filter's attenuation at a certain frequency from the Q-factor

I'm using the Web Audio API to make a graphic EQ with four BiQuad filters; a highpass, two bandpass and a low pass: You can see each node representing each filter's frequency. It's working nicely but ...

### How can I design a PI controller for a closed loop system, which requires a bandwidth equal to the natural frequency and a set Phase Margin?

For a school project I have to hand in a small report on a this problem. I've been studying so much for it but right now I'm just mixing up everything I've seen and just don't know where to start. I'd ...

### 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. ...

### Parseval's Theorm and Effective Bandwidth

This question says that RMS bandwidth (effective bandwidth) is defined based on the carrier frequency of a signal. This makes intuitive sense to me that the carrier frequency shouldn't determine the ...

### Why does BLE require twice the bandwidth of Bluetooth Classic?

Bluetooth Classic Basic Rate sends data at a rate of 1 Mbps using GFSK modulation in 1 MHz-wide data channels. Bluetooth Low Energy also transmits at that same data rate and modulation, however, it ...

### How does bandwidth relate to the bitrate?

This might be a really trivial question, but I can't wrap my head around it. In almost every textbook, we're told that bandwidth (among power and noise), is the factor for both range and bitrate. I'...

### Can picking an inappropriate roll-off frequency for a digital filter just alias the roll-off value?

I believe a related question is asked here, but my question deals more with what filter is realized if one fails to consider design parameters relative to sampling rate. In designing an IIR filter we ...

### Signal power and signal-to-noise ratio with repeaters

I am trying to solve this question but I am confused on some aspects When solving part B what power signal will we use. Will we use power signal before repeater 2 or after repeater 2 (x5) When ...

### Minimum bandwidth condition in FSK

I know that FSK occupies a larger bandwidth compared other keying schemes, $$BW= f_1 -f_2 +2R_b$$ where $f_1$ and $f_2$ are carrier frequencies and $R_b$ is the bit rate. For achieving a ...

### Calculate cutoff frequency of filtered data

I am processing data which was put through a low pass filter at some point. Looking at the FFT, I can see that it is less than the Nyquist rate. I am trying to filter another set of data so that the ...

### What is a transmission rate of 802.11a WIFI radio?

I am trying to understand the transmission rate at which a WiFi radio sends its packets to other radios ? Like in DSRC (which is 802.11p system) , DSRC Radio broadcasts its message 10 times a second ...

### Notch Filter with given Bandwidth

I have to use Matlab with the iirnotch()-function to design a notch filter. The notch should sit at 520Hz, the Bandwidth should be 100Hz and I have a sampling ...

### Binary Polar vs 4-PAM Signalling

Why is binary polar signalling not feasible for a data rate of 2.0Mbps within a bandwidth not exceeding 1MHz? Is it due to the fact that binary signalling can only transfer 1 bit of data per symbol ...

### Chirp resolution as a function of bandwidth

My question concerns about the Chirp resolution during the crosscorrelation as a function of the sampling rate and available bandwidth. Suppose at a transmitter a chirp signal is transmitted (ranging ...

### What is the meaning of inverse signal bandwidth?

I have been studying the two ray model in communication systems. The text I'm studying has two signals, $u(t)$, which is Line of Sight and $u(t-t')$, which is the reflected signal. It quotes, ...

### Looking for an algorithm that computes weighted average of frequencies intensity from narrow band in spectrograph

I am searching for the algorithm that takes (audio) signal as an input and outputs weighted intensity of the frequencies of some narrow band (axis X) in time (axis Y). Frequency in the middle of that ...
