Time Aigbe ENME 351 – Sec 0102 Lab 3 Page 2 INTRODUCTION: In this lab, LabVIEW will be used to generate different types of signals and filtering and signal analysis will be performed on these inputs. Spectral analysis is the breaking down of an input signal into its frequency content (multiple frequencies within an input signal) in order to observe the signal strength at different frequencies. In real life situations, this can be used to decide what type of filter to use for a given input signal. Figure 1 shows various filters. These filters are designed to conduct frequency selectivity; passing signals within a band of frequencies and blocking frequencies outside of this band. These filters operate based off of responding to what is known as their cutoff frequency (f c in Figure 1). Figure 1: Several different types of filters OBJECTIVES: The objective of this lab was to learn how to use LabVIEW to perform a spectral analysis and observe how different filters can prevent different frequency inputs from becoming outputs. INSTRUMENTS: DELL computer LabVIEW 8.2 software DESCRIPTION OF EXPERIMENT AND EXPERIMENTAL SETUP: Exercise 3.1 – Spectral Analysis for Generated Signals For this exercise we created the program that can be seen in the block diagram in Figure 2 below. The intention of this circuit is to first generate three different types of signals (sinusoid, square wave, and triangular wave), then we took spectral measurements of these input signals in both linear and dB amplitude scales.

This program was created to produce both a 1V 100 Hz sinusoidal waveform and uniform white noise. The filter cutoff frequency was set above (and below for the next trial) the input frequency and
