The purpose of this lab is to familiarize students with the DSP development workstation in the signal processing lab by examining sampling, analysis, and reconstruction of continuous-time signals. Specifically, we will first look at sampling/reconstruction of continuous-time signals. We will then examine time- and frequency-domain displays. Finally, we will examine the importance of sampling frequency and its effects on aliasing.

Alternative option to NI Speedy 33:

Texas instruments 6711 dsk

  • Digital Signal Processing Board with PCM3003 Audio Daughter Card

The DSP board is responsible for the high-speed DSP calculations and the daughter card controls the A/Dand D/A conversion between the DSP board and the outside world.

  • Specifications of the DSP board and daughter card are as follows:
    • TI TMS320C6711 floating point DSP processor
    • Software-controlled adjustable sampling rate (8, 9.6, 12, 16, 24, and 48 kHz)
    • 16-bit stereo audio codec with two on-board microphones. A lowpass anti-aliasing filter at the input channel with a fixedcutoff frequency = 24 kHz


The software used in the lab is National Instruments LabVIEW DSP Module ; a block diagram-based graphical programming package for digital signal processing thatwill be used for: data acquisition, time domain data display, frequency domain calculation and display, filter implementation,convolution and correlation calculations, speech/signal modeling, and real-time filtering. Using LabVIEW DSP Module in conjunctionwith the LabVIEW Digital Filter Design Toolkit, the DSP board and the rest of the lab equipment will not only allow students toperform data acquisition, analysis, and filtering, it will also give them the ability to listen to the filtered output.

Questions & Answers

can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
Jeffrey Reply
sure. what is your question?
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
I got X =-6
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?

algebra 2 Inequalities:If equation 2 = 0 it is an open set?
Kim Reply
or infinite solutions?
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world

At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
