    Signal processing is viewed as a succession of conformal mappings to match the data to appropriate aspects of the signal, the noise/interference environment, the propagation medium or the intended ultimate use of the received data. These mappings are found to be subject to certain fundamental limiting equations. From this approach, a number of general design guidelines are adduced. The limiting in... View full abstract»

  • Design and application of real-time spectrum-analyser systems

    Publication Year: 1980, Page(s):76 - 91
    Cited by:  Papers (5)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2539 KB)

    The basis of spectrum analysis in Fourier transformation is briefly examined and the principles which can be applied in determining the spectral distribution of energy considered. Classes of analysers are distinguished that operate by frequency filtering and by time-domain processing; the latter being subdivided into direct linear methods depending on dispersive components, indirect or correlation...

  • Signal processing using surface-acoustic-wave and digital components

    Publication Year: 1980, Page(s):92 - 98
    Cited by:  Papers (2)

    The high performance of currently available digital components now permits the efficient coupling of surface-acoustic-wave and digital technologies. Hybrid circuits can be built which benefit from both the flexibility of the digital circuits and the high processing speed of the s.a.w. devices. Further, such circuits offer reduced volume and reduced power consumption. The compatibility of these two... View full abstract»

  • Microprogrammable arithmetic element and its applications to digital signal processing

    Publication Year: 1980
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1601 KB)

    This paper describes a microprogrammable arithmetic element (m.a.e.) which has been designed as an integrated circuit on a high-speed bipolar process using emitter coupled logic (e.c.l.). Although the m.a.e., which contains a multiplier and adder, is a general-purpose computing device, it is ideally suited to a variety of digital signal processing (d.s.p.) applications such as discrete Fourier tra...

  • S.A.W. filters: some case histories

    Publication Year: 1980, Page(s):107 - 117

    The paper presents the background to s.a.w. (surface-acoustic-wave) filter design by discussion of both the basic consideration and the second-order design problems. The state of the art in filters available from a production activity is described by reference to three examples: the t.v. filter, the c.a.t.v. filter and some radar filters. In each case, the important criteria are discussed and thei... View full abstract»

    Pulse-compression radars have been developed in several countries over a period in excess of twenty years. A great advance in the performance of such systems has been made possible with the development of the surface acoustic wave (s.a.w.) interdigital transducer (i.d.t.). In the paper, some recent advances in i.d.t. performance are presented against a background which demonstrates the basic consi... View full abstract»

  • Applications of c.c.d.s to sonar systems

    The characteristics of the charge-coupled device (c.c.d.) are such that it is destined to make a considerable impact on sonar design, particularly in the more compact and lower power applications. The speed of operation and overall delay times available make it eminently suitable for beam forming and a wide range of transversal filter applications over the complete spread of sonar frequencies.

  • Channel vocoder based on c.c.d. discrete-Fourier-transform processors

    Publication Year: 1980, Page(s):132 - 143
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1365 KB)

    This paper investigates how charge-coupled-device (c.c.d) modules could be applied in an alternative implementation of the now established channel vocoder. The objective is to demonstrate the potential of c.c.d. technology in the realisation of low-cost low-power speech processors. In this proposed implementation, the central processor is based on a c.c.d. discrete Fourier transform (d.f.t.) algor... View full abstract»

  • Charge-coupled devices for use in electronically-focused ultrasonic imaging systems

    Pulse-echo ultrasonic imaging techniques make possible the dynamic visualisation and characterisation of many soft-tissue structures with no known patient risk; however, the extraction of this information requires an ultrasonic imaging system capable of producing a high-resolution image over a sizeable field of view in real time. This paper describes the development of the cascade charge-coupled d... View full abstract»

    The possibility of performing synthetic-aperture-radar (s.a.r.) processing on board a satellite is of current interest to the European Space Agency (ESA). A brief outline of the fundamental principles and capabilities of s.a.r. is given, and several real-time processor configurations are discussed, in terms of their suitability for use on board a satellite. In particular, the applicability of new ... View full abstract»

  • Receivers for the NAVSTAR global positioning system

    The NAVSTAR global positioning system (g.p.s.) is being actively developed by the USA and is likely to become operational for both civilian and military users in the mid-1980s. Accuracy of position in three dimensions of afew metres and velocity within 0.1 m/s is predicted. The user equipment, essentially a receiver and an antenna, will employ a considerable volume of signal-processing hardware an... View full abstract»
