1. Abstract
The purpose of this lab is to gain an indepth understanding of Digital Signal Processing,
its uses, and how to analyze various signals and data input. DSP is an umbrella under which
there are many subcategories: Filtering, Sources of Error, Methods of Conversation (between
Analog and Digital), and Numerical Analysis. DSP is used in an extensive range of applications,
but most include the need for collecting data in a manner that cannot be otherwise visually
inspected and obtained.
This lab ties together several realworld examples of DSP and sources of error that can be
seen without the need for an oscilloscope. One such example is that of the electric guitar. The
analog signal is generated by the vibration of the springs, which is captured by the pickups (a
form of transducer) and sent out of the guitar. It is then up to the equipment to convert this signal
to a digital format so it can be processed down the road. This lab will look into the mechanism
by which all of this occurs in a way that helps to explain many aspects of DSP.
In this lab, we will see a variety of waveforms and sources of error. We will be testing
Sine Waves, Square Waves, and Triangle Waves and the effects that Clipping, Quantization, and
Aliasing have on these waves and the signal output from a program called LabVIEW. Following
the experiment, an indepth comparative analysis based on the signal output will be crucial to
understanding how waveforms can be affected by various parameters.
By the end of the lab, we will have a greater comprehension of how waveforms can be
filtered for particular desired frequencies and what the effects that has on the waveform. We will
see how simulated waves compare to generated waves. We will also know how to perform a
Fourier Analysis on a given waveform as well as how the reconstruction it yields can help to
interpret a signal.
All of the information within this lab is of great concern to Mechanical and Aerospace
engineers because, without DSP, engineers would only have crude methods for measuring the
phenomena with which they are concerned. In addition to know why DSP is important, the
information on sources of error and antialiasing will be crucial for obtaining accurate and
reliable results.

2. Introduction
The goal of this entire endeavor is to acquire a greater understanding of Digital Signal
Processing (DSP) and its applications within the field of engineering and elsewhere. This
understanding would not be complete without a close look at how digital signals can be analyzed
in a manner that addresses any associated error and uncertainty. In order to interpret much of the
data extracted from these signals, one must also become familiar with Fourier Analysis, a
powerful computational tool that closely approximates any wellbehaved function. Each aspect
of the lab just mentioned will be explained in depth within this section such that information
presented in the subsequent sections can be put into context.
The first and most pertinent question to this lab is What is Digital Signal Processing?
Before looking at anything else, an understanding of this subject is absolutely necessary. Signal
Processing is based on the collection of information. When performing any kind of experiment,
the need for accumulating and interpreting data is unavoidable. Whether the measured parameter
varies in discrete increments or continuously is a key, determining factor as to how that data can
be recorded.
would be measuring their ascent as a function of time and, though escalators normally move at a
constant speed, that rate could change at certain points along the interval if the escalator were to
speed up and slow down. Digital signal processing is the collection of information when the
Page

given data can be measured in discrete increments. Conversely, analog signals are those that vary
continuously and cannot necessarily be broken down into discrete increments or data points.
The difficulty lies within the fluidity of the world in which we live. In our daily lives,
nothing is actually discrete. All things in the macroscopic levels of physics, chemistry, biology,
etc. vary in an infinitely continuous way that makes data points simply a manifestation of the
limitations of the collection method chosen. Considering this lab is concerned primarily with
DSP and not the philosophical interpretations of the world around us, we will leave this
argument simply with the understanding that DSP is always limited by the number of data points
that can be collected. This then begs the question if that recreation of an actual event accurately
represents the event the data came from. (Keep this concept in mind when aliasing is discussed
later in this section.)
For engineers, DSP is a revolution in the field. Before such capabilities existed, engineers
could only rely on fullscale experiments, handcalculated predictions, and an educated guess
based system of trial and error. When the engineers at Tesla Motors were developing the Model
S, they understood the power of Digital Signal Processing. The Model S is an electric,
production sedan that has sensors for every aspect of its operation. In fact, because the Model S
is controlled by a powerful onboard computer that communicates with Teslas Roadside
Assistance, most issues can be diagnosed and solved remotely by a Tesla employee in a fraction
of the time. Tesla technicians have access to numerous data sets in order to see exactly when and

why something failed. Though this is only one scenario, it can be easily extrapolated that the
engineeringbased offerings of DSP are only limited by the variety and accuracy of sensors
available for interpreting physical phenomena.

integers and are assigned in such a way that they can be read by whatever computer is reading
the digital signal.
We can use the example of the electric guitar to illustrate how an A/D Converter can be
used. Since weve already established that the signal leaving the guitar is an analog signal, this
examination will start at the exit of the guitar chord jack. If, instead of plugging into an
amplifier, a musician wanted to establish a hardwired connection from the guitar to a computer
and record directly into ProTools, Garageband, or another similar software, how what they do it?
The answer is an A/D Converter. There are a number of devices on the market for such an
occasion. What is the advantage of this? one might ask. The answer lies within the power of
digital signals themselves. Digital signals are the building blocks of computer input and can
therefore be manipulated as such. Programs such as Garageband have the incredible ability to
simulate any guitar, amplifier, or acoustic environment that has been programmed into the digital
library. When the program receives the digital signal from the A/D Converter, it plays the signal
through a combination of filters that create distortion, warmth, bite, delay, wahwah, etc. (all
potentially desirable sounds that could come from a guitar setup).
A/D Converters vary in type, ability, mechanism, and accuracy. For the purposes of this
lab, we will be looking at one with 13 bit variable
resolution and a range of 10 volts. These two parameters
are quite important when using this family of devices.
When talking about bits, we are referring to a function of
the number of intervals available for resolution. In an
effort to repurpose an earlier metaphor, this is equivalent
Now looking back at A/D converters, the number of bits and the voltage range directly
relates back to the resolution by Eqn. 2.1:

If this A/D Converter is using its maximum resolution and maximum voltage range, the
resolution could be easily found:

(2.1)
In the discussion about software like Garageband, there was a brief mention of filtering
the digital signal after it is sent to computer. This is a vague term and requires some parsing. In
Digital Signal Processing, filtering is a method of selecting, rejecting, extracting, and modifying
certain frequencies from a raw input. When it comes to DSP, there are four basic types of filters:
HighPass Filters, LowPass Filters, BandPass Filters, and BandReject Filters.

The order of this setup is very important because, if it were to instead to be reversed (input
voltage in series with a capacitor and in parallel with a resistor) it would then be a HighPass
Filter (see Fig. 2.7 for wiring diagrams of Low and HighPass Filters).

(see Fig. 2.9). What is unique about the BandPass,
http://www.its.bldrdoc.gov/fs1037/images/hpfiltec.gif
though, is that it is far more selective about the
frequencies that it picks up. One very common
example is the FM Tuner on a radio. At any given moment, there are radio waves of all
frequencies flying through space, being broadcast from all
over. An FM Tuner is a BandPass filter that allows the radio
operator to select a specific frequency to tune into. If it
werent for the BandPass Filter, radio would sound like a
jumbled mess because the radio would be attempting to pick
up all available frequencies at once.

In the Results section, it will become apparent that another advantage of using a filter of
some sort is that it also cleans up some of the plots by eliminating the background information.
Filters not only have the ability to remove targeted parts of a signal, but they can also change the
signal. When considering the signal of an electric guitar, running a signal through a filter can
create distortion (literally meaning a distorted form of the original signal). This distorted tonal
output is considered desirable for musicians like Jimmy Page (of Led Zeppelin) and Jack White
(of The White Stripes), but far less desirable for Howard Shore as he listens to the final recording
of the London Philharmonic Orchestra performing the soundtrack to The Lord of The Rings
(which he composed and produced).
Now that the concept of filtering has become clearer, we can look at another way that
digital signals can be an altered representation of event they are describing: error. Error is a
broad term that describes any number of issues, but we are particularly concerned with the error
in Digital Signal Processing that alters a signal in a way that is generally unintentional or
unwanted.
The first source of error that will be examined is called Quantization Error. Quantization
results as a drop in the resolution of the data due to an insufficient number of bits to accurately
show the changes in data this is equivalent to measuring the weight of an average person in
tons. When we think of this as a change in resolution, it is easy to
understand what is going on here. This source of error can be
thought of as switching from an IMAX viewing experience to the
old, 40lb. Sony that still plays your favorite VHS tapes: the
quality is not nearly as good and you will be getting a much more
abstract representation of what was actually going on in reality.
We will see an example of quantization error in the experiments.
Fig. 2.11 shows the general graphical explanation of what is
happening when quantization error occurs. We can extrapolate
Figure

from this that increasing the number of bits will generally

Processing
of bits will increase the likelihood of quantization. This is of course a scale that is relative to the
size of the increments being measured and the advantage to increasing the number of bits will
diminish as the minimum signal intervals are accounted for.
The next source of error to be discussed is Clipping. Clipping is a form of error that is
reliant on the maximum range of the A/D converter. This means that if the converter cannot read
data greater than a specific value, it will
automatically interpret that data as the
maximum readable value. This is
difficult concept to grasp so a metaphor
may be of some use here. At every
carnival, fair, or theme park, there is a
game that is incredibly simple yet Figure 2.12: Example of Clipping Error
number of names: High Striker, Strength Tester, and Strongman Game are a few. The game is
fairly basic. Hit the pad with the hammer hard enough to knock the puck into the bell (the pad
and the puck are connected via a lever) and you win a prize. Generally, its very hard to actually
hit the bell because the odds are stacked against you because the lever provides very little
mechanical advantage, which means that we can assume this game is an accurate measure of
strength. Now imagine that, in his prime, Muhammad Ali (one of the greatest heavyweight
boxers of all time) approaches the Strength Tester and hits the bell on his first try. Since
Muhammad Ali input more than the maximum measureable force, we cannot know how hard he
hit the pad. The force with which he hit the pad, in DSP terms, is equivalent to the force
necessary to ring the bell no more, no less (see Fig. 2.12).
example, Gumby (the American clay animation franchise) would not exist without the possibility
of aliasing. Though aliasing has its constructive applications, it is detrimental to data collection
the majority of the time.
In Digital Signal Processing, aliasing occurs when the sample rate, or sample frequency,
is too low to collect the true behavior of the signal. Another example of aliasing is a strobe light.
If you were to turn of all the lights in the room so that it is pitch black and flash a strobe light on
your hand as you move it, you would not be able to see its path. If you were to move your hand
from sidetoside, then in a circle, both at the same frequency as the strobe light, it would look
exactly the same.
The main way that aliasing can be avoided is by increasing the sampling rate of the data
collection method. A general rule of thumb is that the greatest frequency that can be resolved
accurately by DSP is a frequency that is equivalent to half of the sampling rate:

be represented by an infinite sum of sine and cosine waves. Based on this statement, there is a
method of analysis specifically designed for such purposes. This numerical method is called
Fourier Analysis.
Fourier Analysis is used to reconstruct harmonic signals so that computers can interpret
them. The reason for performing such an analysis is not always so clear. It is important to
understand that, though a string of data points can be useful in some situations, a governing
function that applies to an entire subset of data is far more versatile and (for its uses in most DSP
applications) a function is the only way extract and interpret the desired information.

Where a0, an, and bn are coefficients that are unique to the waveform of the digital signal being
inputted. For our uses in this lab, we will be using the Sine, Square, and Triangle Waves. Table

The importance of the Eqn. 2.3 is that this equation is a transformation from one
domain to another. The domain of a function is a set of all possible values for the independent
variable. The original domain a digital signal is the time domain, but the Fourier Transform then
takes that signal and breaks it up into a set of frequencies within the frequency domain.
The concept of multiple domains is very abstract and is best understood by looking at Fig. 2.16:

The final measure of this report, which must be discussed, is the concept of uncertainty.
Uncertainty is the quantifiable error inherent in the devices and methods used to measure and
calculate result data. In this lab, uncertainty will be determined using a method known as the
Zeroth Order of Uncertainty. This method is crucial for understanding the accuracy of the
experiment and for those reviewing the results to assess the overall scope of the claims that can
be made when analyzing those results. Zeroth Order of Uncertainty is found using the following
equation:
!"
!,! = ( !,!! )!
!!!
(2.4)
We will see how Zeroith Order of Uncertainty plays a role is found specifically for the
parameters with which we are concerned in the Results section.

3. Procedure
3.1 Overview
The focus of this experiment is twofold, Digital Signal Processing (DSP) and
Fourier Analysis. In order to gain a thorough understanding of both topics, you will be using
simulated and generated waveforms (sine, square, and triangle waves) to draw comparisons
between raw data and theory. You will also see white noise, which is a nonharmonic function. A
computer program called LabVIEW will create the simulated waves and a B&K Function
Generator will create the generated signals seen in this lab.
Throughout the lab, there will be sources of error associated with the digitization of data
that must be acknowledged and explained. You will also look at how to minimize those errors
using filters (e.g. analog lowpass filter). The sources of error addressed in this lab are clipping,
quantization, and aliasing. All of these data sets and comparisons will be presented in the
Results section along with the relative uncertainty of each technique.

Any given Fourier reconstruction is made up of a combination of sines and cosines that
approximate a given function. When that function is simply a Sine Wave, it can be approximated
using a Sine Wave (see Fig. A1).
In the time
domain, we can see a
green, Sine Wave
reconstruction. We
cannot see the blue
wave that is under the
reconstruction
because the Fourier
plot is a perfect patch.
The blue wave that is

As discussed earlier, an ideal Fourier plot in the frequency domain would show a vertical
line instead of a peak. The reconstruction is an idealized version of the actual data and the point
on this graph above the peak represents where that vertical line would extend. The differences
between actual and reconstructions in the frequency domain plot can be explained by the
associated uncertainty values. Those values and their uncertainties are shown below in Table
4.1c.

For the Square Wave, it is clear that this waveform cannot be reconstructed with either
one sine or one cosine function (see Fig. A3). Instead, there will be a series of waves that make
up a reconstruction. In the time domain, we can see the original blue Square Wave, which are the
actual data points
from Simulation 3.

These additional peaks represent each of the terms present in the Fourier transform function in
this domain, thus proving the statement above. Aside from the fact that this simulation is not
perfectly ideal, there are no other notable sources of error. The results of Simulation 3 are shown
in Table 4.3a and Table 4.3b.

Since the Triangle Wave is fairly close to sine and cosine functions, this waveform will
be reconstructed very closely with only a few sine functions (see Fig. A5). In the time domain,
we can see the original blue Triangle Wave, which are the actual data points from Simulation 5.
We can also see
several reconstructed
waves that approach
the shape of the
triangle wave as the n
value increases. We
can then look to the
frequency domain to
see several peaks (one
at ~600Hz, ~1800Hz,

4.3 Filtering
In Simulation 2, we saw a Square Wave with a LowPass Filter (see Figure A2).
With the lowpass filter, there are obvious changes in the appearance of both the time and
frequency domains.
Looking at in the
time domain, it can
be seen that the
shape of the Square
Wave is now
somewhat off.
Specifically, the
sharp corners have
now become
rounded and even
amplitude of the
original wave. In the frequency domain, we see that the peaks disappear after the cutoff
frequency, 10kHz. In addition, the other minor spikes in between the important peaks have been

filtered out. The results of Simulation 2 are shown in Table 4.2a and Table 4.2b.
Table 4.2a: Simulation 2 Results, Time Domain Table 4.2b: Simulation 2 Results, Frequency Domain
In Simulation 4, we saw a Triangle Wave with a LowPass Filter (see Figure A4). With
the lowpass filter, there are slight changes in the appearance of the time domain. By contrast,
the frequency domain looks very similar to that of the unfiltered (with exception of the peaks
disappearing after the cutoff frequency). Looking at in the time domain, it can be seen that the
shape of the Triangle Wave is now somewhat rounded on the tops. The results of Simulation 4
are shown in Table 4.4a and Table 4.4b below.

In Simulation 6, we reproduced the same Sine Wave as in Simulation 1. This run is meant
to act as a baseline test for us to be able to make comparisons to the next experiments results.
Because this is a simulation and the inputs were identical, no description is needed. In any case,
the plot of Simulation 6 is provided in Fig. A6 below for completeness.
The results from Simulation 6 have also been given in Table 4.6a and Table 4.6b. You
will notice that they are similar results to Simulation 1. The only differences are the points
chosen for sampling.
Time Domain Frequency Domain
Table 4.6a: Simulation 6 Results, Time Domain Table 4.6b: Simulation 6 Results, Frequency Domain
As mentioned, these results do not contain any sources of significant error, but will be a
good control group for comparison.
In Simulation 7, this is the first exposure to quantization error. We can see in Fig. A7 that
this plot does not look like a normal Sine Wave, as in Simulation 6. Instead, we see a very
interesting shape that resembles a piecewise function that is imitating the harmonic behavior of a
Sine Wave. It is important to keep in mind that the only parameter changed between Simulation
6 and Simulation 7 was the number of bits (the resolution of the A/D converter). This means that
the uncertainty in voltage measurement will be greater.
Time Domain Frequency Domain

In Simulation 8, we see quantization error again, but this time on a Square Wave. We can
see in Fig. A8 that this plot does not look like a normal Square Wave, especially when compared
to Simulation 3. Instead, we see a very interesting shape that resembles a piecewise function that
is imitating the
harmonic behavior of
a Square Wave. Just
as in Simulation 7, it
is important to
remember that the

uncertainty in voltage measurement will be greater. Something new to note in this graph is that
there is a unique oscillation about its amplitude at 6.0V. This is interesting because, in a standard
Square Wave, this part of the wave should be flat.

Much like in Simulation 6, Simulation 9 is meant for a basis of comparison for the
following experiment in order to draw conclusions about what exactly happens to a Sine Wave
during clipping. This being said, the plot of Simulation 9 is provided in Fig. A9 below for
completeness.
The results from Simulation 9 have also been given in Table 4.9a and Table 4.9b. You
will notice that they are similar results to Simulations 1 and 6. The only differences are the points

In Simulation 10, this is the first exposure to clipping. We can see in Fig. A10 that this
plot does not look like a normal Sine Wave, as in Simulation 9. Instead, we see a very interesting
shape that looks more a Square Wave with rounded edges. It is important to keep in mind that
the only parameter changed between Simulation 9 and Simulation 10 was the bipolar voltage
range. This means that any data that exceeds 1.0V will be literally clipped off the top of the
wave.

Just as in each of the other two sections on sources of error, we will first create a baseline
plot against which we can compare the following experiment. Due to the nature of aliasing, we
will need to cease our simulations and begin the experimental procedures so that we can see this
error source. Experiment 11 is meant for a basis of comparison for the following experiment in
order to draw conclusions about what exactly happens to a Sine Wave during clipping. This
being said, the plot of Experiment 11 is provided in Fig. A11 below for completeness.

see a very jagged

Due to this aliasing, the results of the experiment will not resemble those of any Sine
Wave seen thus far (see Table 4.12a and Table 4.12b).

In Experiments 14 and 15, we are collecting data on a basic Square Wave without a filter
and a basic Triangle Wave without a filter, respectively. There are no new aspects to these data
sets, but instead they are collected so that they can be looked at in comparison to the simulated
Square Wave and simulated Triangle Wave. These data sets will be shown below, but there will
be no indepth descriptions here due to the lack of contrasting information.

In the final run, Experiment 16, we look at White Noise. White Noise is a nonharmonic
function. The randomness of this signal can be seen at first glance in Figure A16. Due to the
nature of this function, there is very little information that we can take away from it. No data was
directly collected during the lab session due to time constraints, as well as the nature of the signal
itself.

5. Conclusion
As weve seen throughout this lab, there are a number of factors that are extremely
important when it comes to Digital Signal Processing and obtaining useful data in any type of
application. Harmonic waves are prevalent in many fields of study and without methods like
Fourier Analysis, there would be no way to properly examine and analyze them. Some of the
most notable results from this experiment can be found in the uncertainties in key parameters. In
other words, the accuracy of a processed signal is extremely dependent upon the proper choice of
bipolar range, sampling frequency, and number of bits. Improper selection of measurement
parameters can lead to large errors in aliasing, quantization, and clipping all of which can be
highly detrimental to obtaining reliable results.
In engineering, it is important to begin any type of analysis with the existing conditions,
parameters, governing laws, and constraints. Without such knowledge, a complete understanding
of the task at hand would be impossible. For this to be possible, there must be data and
explanations for any phenomena that occur within the system of interest. With Digital Signal
Processing, it is possible to obtain an unmatched level of sophistication within an engineering
analysis. Once the system is properly understood, then a solution is designed. Before a job is
completed, the new solution must be tested to confirm that in practice it performs as it was
designed. This is another instance within the basic design process that DSP presents itself.
It is apparent that the basic procedure of any engineering task, if done correctly, is
heavily reliant on accurate data acquisition and digital signal processing. For instance,
redesigning a cars suspension first requires an understanding of how the original suspension
performs and what the pitfalls are of that design. Then, an engineer might develop a new design
based on theoretical knowledge, prototypes, and computer modeling software. Before the new
car is sent out for mass production or to the racetrack, extensive testing is required once again in
order to confirm the calculations and assumptions made during the design process. This timeline
would not be possible with force transducers on the pushrods, shockpots on the dampers, strain
gauges on the chassis, and A/D converters to take all of this data and organize it in a way that
will improve the design process overall as well as the quality of the design produced by an
engineer.
