Fun with Java, Understanding the Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) Algorithm. Java Programming, Notes # 1486 Preface Programming in Java doesn't have to be dull and boring. In fact, it's possible to have a lot of fun while programming in Java. This lesson is one in a series that concentrates on having fun while programming in Java. Viewing tip You may find it useful to open another copy of this lesson in a separate browser window. Supplementary material I recommend that you also study the other lessons in my extensive collection of online Java tutorials. General Discussion The purpose of this lesson is to help you to understand how the Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) algorithm works.

There are several different FFT algorithms in common use. A general-purpose transform The Fourier transform is most commonly associated with its use in transforming time-domain data into frequency-domain data. Transforming from space domain to wave number domain For example, my first job after earning a BSEE degree in 1962 was in the Seismic Research Department of Texas Instruments.

Frequency means oscillations (cycles) per second in Hz = hertz = 1/s. 1 second = 1000 ms and 1 ms = 0.001 seconds. 1 hertz = 1 Hz = cps = cycles per second. Oszilloscope: Input of the boxes (Div.) and timebase (Y) give the frequency.

How to Interpolate in the Time-Domain by Zero-Padding in the Frequency Domain | By Rick Lyons Performing interpolation on a sequence of time-domain samples is an important (often used) process in DSP, and there are many descriptions of time-domain interpolation (a kind of curve fitting) in the literature and on the Internet. However, there’s a lesser-known scheme used for interpolation that employs the inverse discrete Fourier transform (IDFT).

This little tutorial attempts to describe that technique. One of the fundamental principles of discrete signals is that "zero padding" in one domain results in an increased sampling rate in the other domain. Figure 1 If, on the other hand, we zero pad (append) 96 zero-valued samples to the end of w(n), we’ll have the 128-sample w’(n) sequence shown in Figure 1(c). For each sample in Figure 1(b), we have four samples in Figure 1(d). Many folk call this process "spectral interpolation". OK, that’s time-domain zero padding. X(n)=sin(2·pi·1000·nts) + 0.5sin(2·pi·2000·nts + 3·pi/4), Figure 2 Figure 3 Now, here’s the slick part. Figure 4.

Beamforming is a general signal processing technique used to control the directionality of the reception or transmission of a signal on a transducer array.

Using beamforming you can direct the majority of signal energy you transmit from a group of transducers (like audio speakers or radio antennae) in a chosen angular direction. Or you can calibrate your group of transducers when receiving signals such that you predominently receive from a chosen angular direction. The physics and math are essentially the same for both the transmitting and receiving cases, so I will concentrate on the transmission case to explain the concept further. I should mention as well that there are a few general approaches to directing this signal energy, but by far the most common is having a slightly different signal go out of (or into) each transducer in your group; this is the approach I discuss here. In the plotted examples I've made, I've simply used a sin() function for s(t), but it could be anything. Matlab - FFT and Zero Padding | blinkdagger.
