This module is a laboratory assignment to implement an echo function.

Introduction

In this laboratory you will use a program that gathers data from an A/D converter, processes the data, and outputs to a D/A converter. The signal processing portion will be added by you to perform an echo function. After this laboratory you should:

  • Understand how data is received from an A/D converter and sent to a D/A converter
  • Understand how signal processing is done in "real-time"
  • Be able to implement a simple signal processing algorithm using "block processing" techniques

Laboratory assignment

In the laboratory you will be making a delay function or an echo. To make an echo you will need to delay the data that is coming into the DSP. This is usually accomplished using a buffer that is used to store previous input values. Use a circular buffer to store the input data. The length of the buffer is determined by

N = Delay SampleRate size 12{N= ital "Delay" cdot ital "SampleRate"} {}

In order to implement the delay an array of sufficient size must be defined. When a function is called, the local variables will go onto the stack. The stack is usually small compared to other memory sections. Therefore, the number of local variables for a function is limited. Since the array for storing the previous inputs will be large, the array should be stored somewhere else in memory besides on the stack. If the Memory Model in the build options is set to Far Aggregate then the global variables and the local static variables will be put into the .far section. This section can be set to the large external memory. Therefore, the array that stores the delay values should be defined as either a global or static local variable . A static local variable is a variable that is not initialized each time a function is called. The static variable will retain the value it had the last time the function was called. To make a static variable just use the static keyword in front of the variable definition.

static int static_var, static_array[10];

You need to make sure the .far section is set to a large memory section. For our project, set it to the SDRAM memory. To change the location of the .far section in the project you should:

  • Open the project DSK6713_audio.pjt
  • Open the configuration file DSK6713_audio.tcf
  • Right click on System->MEM and open Properties
  • Click on the Compiler Sections tab
  • On the pull down menu next to the .far section select SDRAM

Pre-laboratory

  • If your sample rate is 8000 Hz and you want a delay of 1/2 second, how long should your delay buffer be?
  • The main loop in the default I/O program simply inputs a block of data and then outputs a block of data. You need to modify the main loop so that it will take an input sample, store it in the circular buffer and output the sample that is delayed by 1/2 second. Your code should implement a circular buffer . Also, make sure you initialize the buffer with zeros so that you won't output whatever happens to be in the memory.
  • What is the transfer function, H(z), of the system in the following figure? What is the difference equation? What would happen if you set the feedback gain to a value greater than 1?
  • Write another program that will implement a fading echo shown in following figure. The output of the delay is fed back to the input of the delay and added to the input.

Laboratory

Part 1

  • In this part you will just get the template project working that simply outputs whatever was input.
  • Open the project DSK6713_audio.pjt .
  • Change the parameters in the DSK6713_audio.c file so that the sampling rate is 8000 Hz and the input is from the microphone.
  • Connect a microphone to the DSK board microphone input and the speakers to the line out.
  • Build, load and run the project.
  • Verify that as you speak into the microphone you hear yourself on the speakers.

Part 2

  • Modify the program DSK6713_audio.c so that one channel of output is delayed by 1/2 second. Make sure to define your stored samples array as a global or static array in external memory.
  • Build, load and run the project.
  • Demonstrate that you get a 1/2 second delay in the output.

Part 3

  • Modify the program DSK6713_audio.c to implement the fading echo.
  • Build, load and run the project.
  • Demonstrate that you get a 1/2 second delay in the output.
  • What would happen if you set the feedback gain to a value greater that 1?

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
Prasenjit
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
Azam
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world

this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
Prasenjit
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
Prasenjit Reply
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.
