### Time-variance and causality of $y(t)=\sum_{k=-\infty}^{+\infty}x(t)\delta(t-kT)$

Is the following system time invariant and/or causal? $$y(t)=\sum_{k=-\infty}^{+\infty}x(t)\delta(t-kT)$$ I think that it isn't time invariant and it is causal, and my thought is based on the ...

### Basic sampling excercise - unsure of rationale informing np.arange parameters for time array

I'm extremely new to DSP, so I apologise if it's a very basic question. I'm having issues understanding the following exercise: "Create an array of 201 samples containing a sin wave with a frequency ...

### Hardware selection for acquiring signal in digital form

I want to it clear that I am a mechanical engineer and so my knowledge on electronics and signal processing is limited. I am working in a hydrophone system. My job is to find the position of an ...

### Compensation for Irregular Time Step for DFT (FFT)

I want to run a clustering algorithm (svm, knn) on the ferquency spectrum data of a temperature sensor that published at irregular times. Here is the temperature data to take the FFT: I got the ...

### Minimum time delay that can be estimated between two sensors

Consider a 1-dimensional toy problem. I have two sensors at different points along the $x$-axis. Somewhere away from the sensors, a disturbance is created which travels towards the sensors, first ...

### Signal view from two different receivers (of the same model)

I have two SDRs hooked up to two different computers, both radios tuned to the same frequency. They sample at 2Msps. What I would like to do is start up both (at 'about the same time'), and, after ...

### 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.

### Estimate sampling frequency given an array of values

Given an array x of size 2000, is there any way to calculate (or estimate) the sampling frequency using Matlab? The values are the only information I have about the signal. I know the signal has been ...

### How to best separate my signal into frequency regions?

I have a signal with frequencies betwwen [0.5,500] Hz and i want to create a filter to best separate the signal in the following regions: [0.5-3]Hz [3-8]Hz [8-13]Hz [13-30]Hz [30-500]Hz My ...

### Why is one of the modulated frequency spikes smaller?

This is a simple amplitude modulation experiment. Both waves are sinusoids of the type cos(2 x pi x f x t). The base signal has a frequency 100Hz, and the ...

### FFT resolution and sampling frequency

I am computing FFT of the data which I am receiving from an ADC with SPI protocol. Since resolution of FFT is related to $F_s/N$ where $N$ is the FFT length and $F_s$ is the sampling frequency of ADC, ...

### which of the analog sinusoidal frequency can not pass through the filter?

First time I am encountering this type of question so i just tried but not getting whether my logic correct or not. First let the sinusoidal signal be $X(t)=\cos(2\pi ft)$. After sampling this ...

### Am I violating Nyquist?

I am using a DAC to transmit 2 different voltage levels. High and low. At 1Gsps. There is no carrier wave or anything. These are just raw 0 and 1 time samples going across a wire. On my ADC I am ...

### Continuous wavelet transform subsampling at lower frequencies?

I am not completely confident in my understanding of wavelet theory, but since I am currently in the process of creating a CWT scalogram tool, I have to ask: Is there a theorem allowing us to ...

### Upsampling and Downsampling using IFFT and FFT

Assume in OFDM , there are N=64 subcarriers. I would like to upsample my signal by Factor 8 after IFFT and pass it through channel then downsample it by factor 8 before FFT. I can use upsample, ...
