This paper proposes a general structure for FIR filters with adjustable magnitude and phase responses controlled by a few parameters. The Farrow structure which uses one parameter to control the fractional delay of an FIR filter can be viewed as special case. A filter bank structure consisting of different types of linear phase differentiators forms the(More)
Digital filters with adjustable bandwidth(s) are generally desirable in many applications like audio processing and telecommunication. This paper proposes a generalized Farrow structure for adjustable bandwidth linear-phase FIR filters designed under a minimax design criterion. The bandwidth of the proposed filter structure can be continuously adjusted with(More)
This paper proposes a compressive sampling scheme based on random temporal sampling using a successive approximation register (SAR) ADC architecture. Variable wordlength data samples at random sampling times would be produced by the SAR converter, so a modified reconstruction algorithm is proposed to recover signals that are sparse or compressible in a(More)
This paper proposes a new perspective on the relationship between the sampling and aliasing. Unlike the uniform sampling case, where the aliases are simply periodic replicas of the original spectrum, random sampling theory shows that the randomization of sampling intervals shapes the aliases into a noise floor in the sampled spectrum. New insights into both(More)
Cognitive radio (CR) systems offer higher spectrum utilization by opportunistically allocating the unused spectrum from primary users to secondary users. For CR it is vital to perform fast and accurate spectrum sensing in a wideband and noisy channel. Cyclic feature detection performs well in signal detection and is also highly robust to noise uncertainty.(More)
Filterbank implementations and simulations can be used successfully in introductory signal processing lab courses by avoiding some of the analytical complexities and focusing on real-world applications. One excellent area is human hearing where the cochlea is well modelled by a filterbank. A lab project that simulates a cochlear implant (CI) combines(More)
Improved capacitive touch screen responsiveness can be achieved at the expense of the touch screen controller analog hardware complexity and power consumption. This paper proposes a compressive sensing based approach to exploit the sparsity of simultaneous touches (e.g., 10 or less per person) with respect to the number of sensor nodes (e.g., 100s) to(More)
This paper presents a novel digital blind calibration method for time interleaved analog to digital converters (TIADCs). A simple cost function based on the cross-correlation of channel statistics is used to derive a steepest descent algorithm for the compensation of timing mismatch errors. Instead of calibrating the timing mismatches independently for each(More)
Digital filters with adjustable bandwidths controlled by one or two parameters are desirable in many applications. This paper treats the design and implementation of linear phase Finite Impulse Response (FIR) adjustable bandwidth filters using the Farrow structure which employs several basis filters in parallel.
