For Question 2, download one the signals below. Each signal corresponds to a different 300x300 black-and-white bitmap image. Prior to modulation, the data was augmented by one extra column and row to include parity bits (odd parity for rows, even parity for columns). ASK and Manchester coding were used for modulation. The carrier frequency is 1000 Hz. The data is trasmitted row after row. At the end each row, an 'end-of-row' signal is trasmitted (5 periods of a sinusoid wave at half the frequency of the carrier). The sample rate of the wave file is 5000 Hz. Encoder program (Matlab code)
- Signal 1
- Signal 2
- Signal 3
- Signal 4
- Signal 5
- Signal 6
- Signal 7
- Signal 8
For Question 8, download one the two datafiles below and try to remove noise as much as you can. In both cases the original signal is an excerpt from Handel's "Halleluja" chorus. The sampling frequency is 8192 Hz.
