UNIT – I
INTRODUCTION
1.What do you understand by the terms: Signal and Signal Processing.
A signal is defined as any physical quantity that varies with time, space, or any
other independent variable.
Signal processing is any operation that changes the characteristics of a signal.
These characteristics include the amplitude, shape, phase and frequency content of a signal.
2.What are the classification of signals?
There are five methods of classifying signals based on different features:
(a) Based on independent variable.
(i) Continuous time signal.
(ii) Discrete time signal.
(b) Depending upon the number of independent variable.
(i) One dimensional signal,
(ii) Two dimensional signal.
(iii) Multi dimensional signal.
(c) Depending upon the certainty by which the signal can be uniquely described as
(i) Deterministic signal.
(ii) Random signal.
(c) Based on repetition nature.
(i) Periodic signal.
(ii) Non – Periodic signal.
(d) Based on reflection
(i) Even signal.
(ii) Odd signal.
3. Define discrete system.
A discrete time system is a device or algorithm that operates on a discrete time
input signal x(n) , according to some well defined rule , to produce another discrete – time
signal y(n) called the output signal.
4. What are the classification of discrete – time systems?
1. Static and Dynamic system.
2. Time – variant and time – invariant system.
3. Linear and non – linear system.
4. Stable and Un-stable system.
5. Causal and non-causal system.
6. IIR and FIR system.
5. Differentiate Continuous time and Discrete time signal.

Continuous time signal: It is also referred as analog signal i.e., the signal is
represented continuously in time.
Discrete time signal : Signals are represented as sequence at discrete time intervals .
6.Define digital signal.
A discrete time signal which discrete valued represented by a finite number of digits is
referred to as a “digital signal”.
7.What is Deterministic signal? Give example.
A signal that can be uniquely determined by a well - defined process such as a
mathematical expression or rule , or look-up table is called a deterministic signal.
Example : A sinusoidal signal
t V t v
m
ω sin ) ( ·

8.What is random signal? Give example.
A signal that is generated in a random fashion and cannot be predicted ahead of
time is called a “ random signal”.
Example : Speech signal , ECG signal and EEG signal.
9.Define (a) Periodic signal (b) Non – periodic signal.
Periodic signal: A signal x(n) is periodic with period N if and only if x(n+N)=x(n)
for all n.
Non – periodic signal: If there is no value of N that satisfies the above equation the
signal is called non-periodic or aperiodic.
10. Define symmetric and antisymmetric signals.
Symmetric signal: A real valued signal x(n) is called symmetric if x(-n) = x(n).
Antisymmetric signal: A signal x(n) is called antisymmetric if x(-n) = -x(n).
11.What are energy and power signals?

12.What are the different types of signal representation?
Signals are represented in various ways
(i) Graphical representation (ii) Functional representation
(iii) Tabular representation (iv)Sequence representation
13.What are the different types of operations performed on discrete – time
signals?
The different types of operations performed on discrete – time signals are
(1)Delay of a signal (2) Advance of a signal (3)Folding or Reflection of a
signal (4) Time scaling (5) Amplitude scaling (6)Addition of signals
(7)Multiplication of signals.
14.What is a static and dynamic system?
A discrete –time system is called static or “memory less” if its output at any
instants ‘n’ depends on the input samples at the same time , but not an past or future
samples of the input.
Ex., y(n) = ax(n)
Y(n)=ax
2
(n)
In any other case, the system is said to be dynamic or to have memory.
Ex., y(n) = ax(n-1)+x(n-2)
y(n)=x(n)+x(n-1)
16.What is a time – invariant system?
A system is called time – invariant if its input – output characteristics do not change
with time.
Ex., y(n)=x(n)+x(n-1)
17.What is a causal system?
DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING S. Krishnakumar & N. Chidambararaj
3
A system is said to be causal if the output of the system at any time n depends only
on present and past inputs, but does not depend on future inputs.
This can be expressed mathematically as,
y(n)=F[x(n), x(n-1), x(n-2)………]
18.Define a stable system?
Any relaxed system is said to be bounded input-bounded output (BIBO) stable if
and only if every bounded input yields a bounded output. Mathematically, their exist
some finite numbers, M
x
and M
y
such that,
∞ < ≤ ∞ < ≤ My n y and Mx n x ) ( ) (
19.What is a linear system?
A system that satisfies the superposition principle is said to be a linear system.
Superposition principle states that , the response of the system to a weighted sum of
signals be equal to the corresponding weighted sum of the outputs of the system to each
of the individuals input signals.
20.Define unit sample response (impulse response) of a system and what is its
significance?
The response or output signal designated as h(n) , obtained from a discrete – time
system when the input signal is a unit sample sequence ( unit impulse) , is known as the
unit sample response(impulse response).
The output y(n) of an LTI system for an input signal x(n) can be obtained by
convolving the impulse response h(n) and the input signal x(n).

21.What is the causality condition for an LTI system?
The necessary and sufficient condition for causality of an LTI system is, its unit
sample response h(n)=0 for negative values of n i.e.,
h(n)= 0 for n<0
22. What is the necessary and sufficient condition on the impulse response for
stability?
DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING S. Krishnakumar & N. Chidambararaj

23. What do you meant by sampling process?
Sampling is the conversion of a continuous –time signal (or analog signal) into a
discrete – time signal obtained by taking samples of the continuous time signal ( or
analog signal ) at discrete time instants.

m
hertz , can be uniquely recovered from its samples provided that the sampling rate f
s
is
greater than or equal to 2f
m
samples per second.
25. Define Nyquist rate.
The frequency 2f
m ,
which , under sampling theorem, must be exceeded by the
sampling frequency is known as the Nyquist rate.
26. What is meant by Quantization process?
The process of converting a discrete time continuous valued signal into discrete
time discrete valued signal is called Quantization.
27. What is aliasing effect?
The superimposition of high frequency component on the low frequency is known
as “frequency aliasing” or “aliasing effect”.
28. How can aliasing be avoided?
To avoid aliasing the sampling frequency must be greater than twice the highest
frequency present in the signal.
29. What is an anti aliasing filter?
A filter is used to reject frequency signals before it is sampled to reduce the aliasing
is called an anti aliasing filter.
30.What is meant by critical sampling?

19.How will you obtain linear convolution from circular convolution.
Consider two finite duration sequences x9n) and h(n0 of duration L samples and N
samples respectively. The linear convolution of these two sequences produces an
output sequence of duration L+M-1 samples , whereas , the circular convolution of x(n)
and h(n) give N samples where N=Max(L,M) . In order to obtain the number of
samples in circular convolution equal to L+M-1, both x(n) and h(n) must be appended
with appropriate number of zero valued samples. In other words, by increasing the
length of the sequences x(n) and h(n) to L+M-1 points and then circularly convolving
the resulting sequences we obtain the same result as that of linear convolution.
20.What is meant by sectioned convolution?
If the data sequence x(n) is of long duration , it is very difficult to obtain the output
sequence y(n) due to limited memory of a digital computer. Therefore, the data
sequence is divided up into smaller section. These sections are processed separately
one at a time and combined later to get the output.
21. What are the different methods used for the sectioned convolution?
The two methods used for the sectioned convolution are (i)the overlap-add method
(ii)Over lap-save method.
22. State the difference between (i) overlap-add method (ii) overlap – save method.

data block is N=L+M-1
In this method the size of the input data
block is L.
2. Each data block consists of the last M-
1 data points of the previous data
followed by the L new data points.
Each data block is L points and we
appended M-1 zeros to compute N-point
DFT.
3. In each output block M-1 points are
corrupted due to aliasing , as circular
convolution is employed.
In this no corruption due to aliasing as
linear convolution is performed using
circular convolution.
4. To form the output sequence the first
M-1 data points are discarded in each
output block and the remaining datas
are fitted together.
To form the output sequence, the last M-1
points from each output block is added to
the first (M-1) points of the succeeding
block.

31.What are the difference between and similarities between DIT and DIF
algorithms?
Difference between DIT and DIF:

DIF , the reverse is true, i.e., input is normal order, while the output bit
is reversed. However , both DIT and DIF can go from normal to
shuffled data or vice versa.
2) Considering the butterfly diagram, in DIF , the complex multiplication
takes place after the add – subtract operation.
Similarities:
1) Both algorithms require same number of operations to compute DFT.
2) Both algorithm require bit – reversal at some place during computation.

The different types of structures for realization of IIR system are
(i) Direct form I structure (ii)Direct form II structure

(v) Lattice – ladder form structure.
2.What is the main advantage of Direct form- II realizations when compared to
Direct form –I realization?

4. What is Canonic form structure?
The Direct form –II realization requires minimum number of delays for the
realization of the system. Hence it is called as “Canonic form” structure.
5. What is the main disadvantage of direct form realization?
The Direct form realization is extremely sensitive to parameter quantization. When

parameter quantization , results in a large change in the location of the poles and zeros
of the system.

41.How can you design digital filters from the analog filters?
1. Map the desired digital filter specifications into those for an equivalent analog
filter.
2. Derive the analog transfer function for the analog prototype.
3. Transform the transfer function of the analog prototype into an equivalent
digital filter transfer function.
42.Mention any two procedures for digitizing the transfer function of an analog
filter.
The two important procedures for digitizing the transfer function of an analog filter
are
1. Impulse invariance method.
2. Bilinear transformation method.
1. High thermal stability due to absence of resistors , inductors and capacitors.
2. The performance characteristics like accuracy, dynamic range, stability and
tolerance can be enhanced by increasing the length of the registers.
3. The digital filters are programmable.
4. Multiplexing and adaptive filtering are possible.
1. The bandwidth of the discrete signal is limited by the sampling frequency.
2. The performance of the digital filter depends on the hardware used to
implement the filter.
44.What is impulse invariant transformation?
DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING S. Krishnakumar & N. Chidambararaj
32
The transformation of analog filter to digital filter without modifying the impulse
response of the filter is called impulse invariant transformation (i.e., in this
transformation the impulse response of the digital filter will be sampled version of the
impulse response of the analog filter.)
45.What is the main objective of impulse invariant transformation?
The objective of this method is to develop an IIR filter transfer function whose
impulse is the sampled version of the impulse response of the analog filter. Therefore
the frequency response characteristics of the analog filter are preserved.
46.Write the impulse invariant transformation used to transform real poles with

47.What is the relation between digital and analog frequency in impulse invariant
transformation.
The relation between analog and digital frequency in impulse invariant
transformation is given by
Digital frequency, T Ω · ω
Where,
Ω - Analog frequency and
T - Sampling time period
48.What is Bilinear transformation?
The Bilinear transformation is a conformal mapping that transforms the s-plane
to z-plane . In this mapping the imaginary axis of s-plane is mapped into the unit circle in
z-plane, the left half of s-plane is mapped into interior of unit circle in z-plane and the right
half of s-plane is mapped into exterior of unit circle in z-plane . The Bilinear mapping is a
one – to-one mapping and it is accomplished when

50. What is frequency warping?
In bilinear transformation the relation between analog and digital frequencies is
nonlinear. When the s-plane is mapped into z-plane using bilinear transformation , this
nonlinear relationship introduces distortion in frequency axis, which is called
frequency warping.
51. What is prewarping? Why it is employed?
In IIR filter design using bilinear transformation , the conversion of the specified
digital frequencies to analog frequencies is called prewarping.
The prewarping is necessary to eliminate the effect of warping on amplitude
response.
52. Explain the technique of prewarping.
In IIR filter design using bilinear transformation the specified digital frequencies
are converted to analog equivalent frequencies, which are called prewarp frequencies.
Using the prewarp frequencies, the analog filter transfer function is designed and then it
is transformed to digital filter transfer function.
53. Compare the impulse invariant and bilinear transformations.
Sl.No Impulse Invariant transformation Bilinear transformation
1. It is many – to – one mapping It is one – to – one mapping.
2. The relation between analog and
digital frequency is linear.
The relation between analog and digital
frequency is nonlinear.
3. To prevent the problem of aliasing the
analog filters should be band limited.
There is no problem of aliasing and so the
analog filter need not be band limited.
4.
The magnitude and phase response of
analog filter can be preserved by
choosing low sampling time or high
sampling frequency.
Due to the effect of warping, the phase
response of analog filter cannot be
preserved . But the magnitude response
can be preserved by prewarping.
