2 Introduction The tasks of communication is to encode information as a signal level, transmit this signal , then decode the signal at the receiver. An analog signal varies continuously with time, and has an infinite number of possible signal levels. A discrete signal changes only once during a certain time interval. The signal value during this time interval (sampling period) is one sample. Each sample has a infinite number of possible signal levels. A digital signal is discrete, but each sample has a finite number of possible signal levels. The limited number of levels means that each sample transmits a single information. It also means that each sample can be represented as digital data , a string of ones and zeroes. A digital signal is preferred in computer communications because computers already store and process information digitally.

The received signal will never be identical to the original signal. A digital signal will still be subject to noise, but the difference between signal levels (an “0101” and an “0110”) will be sufficiently large so that the receiver can always determine the original signal level in each sampling period. The regenerated , so that the received digital data is an exact replica of the original digital data. Analog to digital conversion reduces the amount of information of the signal by approximating the analog signal with a digital signal. The sampling period and number of levels of the digital signal should be selected in order to capture as much information of the original signal as possible

6 Digital signals in the time and thefrequency domain. The time domain is the signal level expressed as a function of time. The frequency domain is comprised of amplitude and a phase for an infinite number of sinusoidal functions. These correspond to the superposition of an infinite number of sinusoidal waveforms in the time domain.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
