### How can I work on DSP using C/C++?

MATLAB is a desktop computing environment, that's designed to make it easy to do math in batches. And if you were to have access to the MATLAB source code, you'd find that as you dig down into it, ...

### How can I work on DSP using C/C++?

C/C++ is the standard language for real time and embedded signal processing. MATLAB is in most cases way too memory hungry and way too slow. There is a lot of signal processing happening in, for ...

### Coherence bandwidth/delay spread in OFDM

Indeed, the constraint $T_s(N+N_{cp}) \gg T_m$ should be derived as $T_s(N+N_{cp}) \gg T_s N_{cp} \geq T_m$. The first inequality to make sure that the CP overhead is as small as possible. The second ...

### Confusion in Phase Shift Keying

Phase shift keying is linear modulation. Digital phase modulation is not necessarily linear.

### Relation between Bandwidth and Baud-Rate for 8-PSK

The final statement is correct, for PSK with proper pulse shaping the baud rate and the bandwidth are the same (the bandwidth will typically be 20-30% higher than the symbol rate, but read on). The ...

### How to "draw" the function/wave to send symbols using QAM?

The baseband QAM signal is complex, and the only way to draw it is by doing two drawings, one for the in-phase (real) component, and one for the quadrature (imaginary) component. The passband QAM ...

### Lower digitisation rate for long distance communcation

At long distances, your transmit signal loses a lot of power. As a result of that, the SNR at the receiver is possibly relatively low. A low SNR means that you cannot transport many bits per second ...

### MATLAB: Adding Noise with Regard to Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) or EbNo?

These stuffs $E_s/N_0, E_b/N_0 \textrm{ and SNR}$ are convertible. \begin{align} E_s/N_0 &= E_b/N_0 + 10\log_{10}(k) \\ E_s/N_0 &= 10\log_{10}(T_{sym}/T_{samp}) + \mathrm{SNR} \end{align} ...

### Acoustic waves propagation distance relation with carrier frequency?

For a sine wave of amplitude $A$ and frequency $f=1/T$, its energy from $-T/2$ to $T/2$ is $A^2T/2$. Thus the power depends only on amplitude. The energy over one period does depend on frequency, but ...

### Why do we need to increase sampling frequency at the transmitter?

Three reasons to increasing the sampling rate further are 1) To relax the requirements of the post D/A conversion filtering for image rejection. 2) Increase signal SNR by spreading quantization ...
