6.003: Signals and Systems Lecture 2 February 4, 2010 6.003: Signals and Systems Discrete-Time Systems February 4, 2010 Multiple Representations of Discrete-Time Systems Systems can be represented in different ways to more easily address different types of issues. Verbal description: ‘To reduce the number of bits needed to store a sequence of large numbers that are nearly equal, record the first number, and then record successive differences.’ Difference equation: y [ n ]= x [ n ] x [ n 1] Block diagram: 1 Delay + x [ n ] y [ n ] We will exploit particular strengths of each of these representations. Step-By-Step Solutions Difference equations are convenient for step-by-step analysis. Find y [ n ] given x [ n δ [ n ] : y [ n x [ n ] x [ n 1] y [ 1] = x [ 1] x [ 2] =0 0=0 y [0] = x [0] x [ 1] =1 0=1 y [1] = x [1] x [0] 1= 1 y [2] = x [2] x [1] y [3] = x [3] x [2] ... x [ n δ [ n ] y [ n ] 10 123 4 4 n n 1 Discrete-Time Systems We start with discrete-time (DT) systems because they are conceptually simpler than continuous-time systems illustrate same important modes of thinking as continuous-time are increasingly important (digital electronics and computation) Difference Equations Difference equations are mathematically precise and compact. Example: y [ n x [ n ] x [ n 1] Let x [ n ] equal the “unit sample” signal δ [ n ] , 1 , if n ; δ [ n 0 , otherwise. x [ n δ [ n ] 4 n We will use the unit sample as a “primitive” (building-block signal) to construct more complex signals. Step-By-Step Solutions Block diagrams are also useful for step-by-step analysis. Represent y [ n x [ n ] x [ n 1] with a block diagram: start “at rest” 1 Delay + x [ n ] y [ n ] 0 1 0 4 n x [ n δ [ n ] 1 0 4 n y [ n ]

6.003: Signals and Systems Lecture 2 February 4, 2010 From Samples to Signals Check Yourself DT systems can be described by difference equations and/or block diagrams. Difference equation: y [ n ]= x [ n ] x [ n 1] Block diagram: 1 Delay + x [ n ] y [ n ] In what ways are these representations different? Lumping all of the (possibly infinite) samples into a single object the signal simplifies its manipulation. This lumping is an abstraction that is analogous to representing coordinates in three-space as points representing lists of numbers as vectors in linear algebra creating an object in Python From Samples to Signals Operators manipulate signals
