EE 329: Class Exercise, March 10, 1997

  1. I have very little voice today. So, we will work on the lab project during class today. We may take an hour from lab on Friday to make up this lecture time. I thought it would be hard to begin the new topic in Chapter 4 (correlation and convolution) with my voice.

  2. For Friday, please finish the plucked-string filter implementation. Your design should allow the generated pitch to vary based on inputs to the dSPACE box. That is, L and a should be controllable by a user in some way. They can either be freely adjustable, or you may "tune" the instrument to generate a small number of "notes". I will send you a list of the frequencies that correspond to the notes on a musical scale.

  3. On Friday, please demonstrate your project in lab, and submit a report explaining your design.

  4. I have some notes on "circular buffers" that might help speed up your implementations. I can give you a copy, if you'd like.

  5. For class today, I'd like each of you to tell me your plan for the project, and ask any questions that you have.

  6. Continue reading Chapter 4 on correlation and convolution.
Thank you.
