The terms analog and digital, in contrast, qualify the nature of the signal amplitUde (vertical axis). 5 68 8 D iscrete-time Signals a nd Systems 8. Using integrated circuit technology, they can be fabricated in small packages requiring low power consumption. Some more advantages of using digital signals are listed in Sec. 5.1-3. 8 .6 Summary Signals specified only a t discrete instants such as t = 0, T, 2T, 3T, . .. , kT are discrete-time signals. Basically, it is a sequence of numbers. Such a signal may be viewed as a function o f t ime t , where the signal is defined o r specified only a t t = kT w ith k any positive o r negative integer. The signal therefore may be denoted as f (kT). Alternately, such a signal may be viewed as a function of k, where k is any positive or negative integer. T he l atter approach results in a more compact notation s uch as f [k], which is convenient a nd easier t o m anipulate. A system whose inputs a nd o utputs a re discrete-time signals is a discrete-time system. In t he s tudy o f continuous-time systems, exponentials with t he n atural base; t hat is, exponentials of t he form e At, where A is comple~ in general, are more natural a nd convenient. In contrast, in t he s tudy of discrete-time systems, exponentials with a general base; t hat is, exponentials o f t he form '"Yk, where '"Y is complex in general, a re m ore convenient. One form of exponential can be readily converted t o t he o ther form by noting t hat eAk = '"Yk, where'"Y = e \ or A = In'"Y, a nd A as well as '"Y a re complex in general. T he e xponential '"Yk grows exponentially with k i f bl > 1 h outside t he unit circle), a nd decays exponentially if I'"YI < 1 h within t he unit circle). I f I'"YI = 1; t hat is, if'"Y lies on t he u nit circle, t he e xponential is e ither a c onstant or oscillates with a constant amplitude.
