Summary: You will work through an example problem that explores the effects of sample-rate compression and expansion on the spectrum of a signal.

Multirate Theory Exercise

Consider a sampled signal with the DTFT Xω X ω shown in Figure 1.

Figure 1: DTFT of the input signal.
Figure 1 (prelab_input.png)

Assuming U=D=3 U D 3 , use the relations between the DTFT of a signal before and after sample-rate compression and expansion (Equation 1 and Equation 2) to sketch the DTFT response of the signal as it passes through the multirate system of Figure 2 (without any filtering). Include both the intermediate response Wω W ω and the final response Yω Y ω . It is important to be aware that the translation from digital frequency ω ω to analog frequency depends on the sampling rate. Therefore, the conversion is different for Xω X ω and Wω W ω .

Wω=1D k =0D1Xω+2πkD W ω 1 D k 0 D 1 X ω 2 k D
Yω=WUω Y ω W U ω

Definition of a lens


A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

What are tags? tag icon

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.
