### How do ADC/DACs deal with out of sync signals near Nyquist frequency?

Let's say a converter is sampling continuously at 48 kHz and the incoming waveform is a sine wave at 24 kHz... How does it faithfully recreate the waveform if the samples are taken at points that are ...

### Understanding the Conditions for Recovering a Discrete Time Signal Through Sampling

So, we had a very brief introduction to the Nyquist-Shannon sampling theorem (the discrete time version). While discussing this, we have seen that multiplying a discrete time signal $x[n]$ by an ...

### Distortion of a signal consisting of two periodic components

We have a signal $$x(t)=U_1\cos\omega_1t+U_2\cos\omega_2t$$ whose frequencies are $f_1=100\,\text{Hz}$ and $f_2=600\,\text{Hz}$. This signal is being discretisated in time using unipolar rectangular ...

### How to classify filters?

In class, we have defined four types of filters: low-pass, high-pass, band-pass and band-stop. I have understood that in order to classify a filter into one of the fourth, one can use the signals: DC:...

### Determine minimum sample rate for continuous sinusoid

Consider a signal $$x(t) = \cos(175\pi t)$$ which is sampled to produce discrete time signal $$x[n] = x(nT_s)$$ The fundamental period of $x[n]$ is $$N_0 = 7$$ Given this, what is the smallest ...

### Does the Nyquist Sampling Theorem hold for a triangular wave?

Does the Nyquist Sampling theorem hold for a triangular wave produced by a function generator? For example, a triangular wave with a frequency of 15 Hz sampled at 60 Hz, 180 Hz and 15000 Hz.

### Highest frequency of collected force signal [closed]

I have collected force at the footrest during paddling at two occasions. During one occasion I accidently collected the force signals at 150 Hz instead of 1500 Hz. During the other time the data was ...

### Minimum possible sampling frequency for continuous time signal

A continuous-time signal $x(t)$ has the magnitude spectrum $\lvert X(F)\rvert$ shown in Figure 6. The signal is sampled to obtain $x(n)$ using the sampling frequency $F_s$. Determine the minimum ...

### Understanding Nyquist rate

I'm starting to learn signal processing, and am trying to understand Nyquist rate a bit better. From what I understand, if I sample at a rate > Nyquist rate I'm supposed to have no data loss. I'm ...

### Smallest sampling frequency to fully reconstruct a signal

Given the spectrum of analog signal $x_a(t)$ which is imaginary and band-limited, find the lowest sampling frequency to be able to reconstruct $x_a(t)$ from samples $x[n]$. My attempt: Bandwidth of ...

### Sampling below Nyqust Frequency

My understanding of Nyquist's theorem is that you need to sample at a rate that's twice the bandwidth of a signal to fully recover it. What exactly does the bandwidth mean in this context and what ...
