### How to increase resolution of FFT?

I have an input signal in the ( 0 - 20 kHz ) frequency range . When i sample this signal maximum sampling frequency is around 40 kHz . When i calculate the FFT using 1024 points i got resolution of ...

### Mirrored Spectrogram Mp3

First of all sorry if this is a stupid question, but I am an absolute beginner in this field and have been trying for days now. I'm working on a java program that uses fft to analyze audio files. To ...

### I have the scatter plots for a Hamm and Tukey(0.25) windowed data. The complex data plotted from Hamm windowed forms a pattern, why?

The Hamm windowed complex data forms some sort of a quantized pattern whereas in the same code if tukeywin(0.25) is applied normal noise is observed. Any idea why ?

### Are there frequency detection methods that are subject to less latency than the Goertzel algorithm?

I am trying to detect oscillations in a small range around 1.5Hz as early as possible. I am currently using the Goertzel algorithm with bins 1.0Hz, 1.2Hz,..., 1.8Hz, and 2.0Hz; with block size N = 500 ...

### How to window a time domain signal for 6 symbols with cyclic prefix length of 512 samples?

Based on LTE stds. I am running a simulation for 6 symbols (each having 1200 central subcarriers) each in a 2048 FFT/IFFT bin. To these symbols are appended 512 samples as cyclic prefixes. I have to ...

### What is the z-domain transfer function of variable delay?

Is it possible to obtain the transfer function of a signal that has a variable delay? For instance, I have a signal consisting of 10 samples: 0,1,1,1,1,0,0,0,0,1 If I would apply a unit delay to ...
