Example text

The term fall scale refers to the highest quantization step. A full-scale sine wave will thus have an amplitude equaling the highest quantization step (compare also page 72). These considerations are often only of limited use to the signal processing algorithm designer, as the quantized signal is usually converted to a signal in floating point format, effectively resulting in a non-linear characteristic line of the quantizer. The floating point stores the number's mantissa and exponent separately so that the quantization step size A Q basically increases with the input amplitude.

The PDF of quantized input signals has a limited set of amplitude classes as a quantized signal has only a limited set of amplitude values. The PDF of a signal can be estimated from a sufficiently long block of samples by computing a histogram of signal amplitudes and dividing it by the number of observed samples. It is then sometimes referred to as Relative Frequency Distribution (RFD). For the sake of simplicity the PDF and the RFD will not be differentiated in the following. 2 Signal Processing The following chapters introduce methods for processing digital signals.

More specifically, computing the CCF of two blocks of length K. requires a minimum FFT length of 2AC. Frequency Domain Compression In certain applications such as auditory processing it might be of interest to apply a nonlinear compression function to the magnitude spectrum before transforming it back. Tolonen and Karjalainen named such a combined approach the generalized ACF to be computed by (see Sect. 2, [28]) rßxxM=r1{\X{^)\ß}. 74) A value ß = 2 would result in the normal ACF. 7 Linear Prediction The idea of linear prediction is to use preceding (sample) values to estimate (or predict) future values.
