Your mom can do a Hilbert transform April 1, 2009

Hi world, I just wanted to say that signal processing is cool. In my signal processing class, we’re learning about analytic signals and the Hilbert transform. Basically it’s a cool and compact way of extracting the amplitude-modulated and frequency-modulated components of a signal simultaneously! This is nifty.

Earlier, in my communication circuits class we learned about how to create an AM receiver and an FM receiver (I built one in a lab). These take quite a bit of design to get the right values of resistors, capacitors, and so on for the specific application, like broadcast AM/FM radio, for example. Using the miracle of a Hilbert transform, you can do it all at once with digital signal processing. THAT is awesome.

In other news, my team is presenting our senior project to the world this week at the Wilk. Everyone’s invited. It’s from 1-5pm at the Garden Court on Thursday. Our team will be demoing what we’ve done with aeronautical telemetry. kthanksbai
