1 Representation of signals Signals encountered in electronic communications are usually classified as: 1. Periodic or nonperiodic Periodic signal: its waveshape repeats after a duration or period T ; i.e., ) ( ) ( T t g t g = for all t . Examples: sinusoidal wave, repetitive pulse train, pseudo-random binary sequence. Nonperiodic signal: no repetition in waveshape. Examples: an isolated pulse, random signal. 2. Deterministic or random Deterministic signal: at any time (past, present or future), there is no uncertainty about its value. Examples: a specified sinusoidal wave, repetitive pulse train. Random signal: there is some degree of uncertainty about its value before it occurs. Examples: noise, speech, data.
