    3   Background: You're building a portable music recorder and playback system. The system has recorded a sample sound for playback. The input, x(t), at the microphone is:
    x(t)= 10 sin(600πt) + 5 sin(4100πt) mV
    1. Show the Fourier transform, X(Ω), as a phasor plot.
    2. Without using any type of anti-aliasing filter, the signal is sampled at 1000 samples/s, giving a sampled sequence x[n]. Calculate x[n] showing each term in its lowest frequency form.
    3. Calculate the Nyquist frequency for this sampling rate, and calculate at what frequency the aliased representation of sin(4100πt) will appear in the sampled signal. Is this signal aliased?
    4. Calculate the value of x[n] for n = 0 … 3 .
    5. Input x[n] is sent into two filters:
        Filter 1: y = f1(x):           y1[n] = ½( x[n] + x[n−1] )
        Filter 2: y = f2(y):           y2[n] = ½( x[n] + y[n−1] )
      Show the block diagram for each filter. Calculate y1[n] and y2[n] for n = 0 … 3, and x[n] = δ[n]. Assume initial conditions are zero.
    6. Calculate the impulse response h1[n] and h2[n], for each filter
    7. Given two filters:
          f1: y[n] = 2x[n−1] + 3x[n−3]
          f2: y[n] = x[n−1] + 0.4y[n−1] f2
      The filters are combined in various ways. Calculate the impulse response of each filter, h1[n] and h2[n].
    8. Calculate the impulse response of the following combined filters, in terms of x[n]
                ______   ______

    3. Show the Fourier Transform phasor plot of x[n]. Label each aliased component as "Folded" or "Non-folding".
    4. If we consider the aliased components to be noise, What is the signal to noise ratio? (recall that the power of each phasor component is ½×Amplitude²)
    5. Calculate the DTFT, X(ω), of: x[n]= u[n](0.1)n

      1. Calculate the center frequency and sketch the filter requirements
      2. Calculate the ideal filter hideal[n].

    5b   We wish to implement a band-pass filter to demodulate an AM radio station with frequency content in the range 726−734kHz (content in this range should be accepted ±1%). We need to reject frequencies below 720kHz and above 740kHz by at least 40dB. We use a A/D system with a sampling frequency of 2MSamples/sec.
