From: commengr on 31 Jul 2010 12:57 Hello, please help me learn the way to write equations for a block diagram, that I have for a communication system. The block diagram is shown in the figure http://i29.tinypic.com/2yyppnr.gif I believe the model is quite simple but I am willing to explain the model, if it is required. Actually, I do not know how to represent the process of "symbol repetition onto parallel streams", or "serial to parallel conversion" or "parallel to serial conversion" (used here for time combining) as equations. Spreading or IDFT are simple enough. Thanks.

The diagram appears to be so full of underlying assumptions that I'd hesitate to try it myself. I'm not sure what "n" implies here (except the obvious connotation) in terms of the "solution space". What is assumed or expected in that context? But then, I'm no expert in this BPSK application space. But, your question is an interesting one because I've *never* seen a reference on this sort of thing. It's always been an implicit skill developed by understanding a bit about calculus notation and some physical thing. Then, one applies what they know about algebra and calculus, to model or describe the physical thing that they understand, into mathematical expressions. It's like the "word problems" we did in math classes. Dealing with discrete sequences is almost the same thing except the integrals become sums, etc. Then you pay close attention to things like indices - how are they to be represented, etc. I've found that large pieces of paper with sequences shown sample-for-sample are often necessary to derive more compact notation. That way, time shifts, etc. can be more easily visualized and taken into account. Did that on a frequency-domain beamformer and a reverberation generator called REVGEN. The more you practice, the more you might get straight to the compact notation - which I think are the expressions you're looking to develop. After a little practice, it's more about careful hard work and less about skill. Fred  |  Pages: 1 Prev: fft questionNext: Birthday Wisdom from my Mother
