Sine Waves

Chapter 4 - Slide 2

Introduction
• DSP can be used to generate sine waves • Sine waves can be used in audio to:
– Generate musical tones and complex waveforms – Generate tones for touch phones (DTMF) – Modulate audio signals (alien voices) – Control audio effects (chorus/phasing/flanging).

Chapter 4 - Slide 3

Objectives
• To generate sine waves from 10Hz to 16000Hz. • To introduce the Texas Instruments library of DSP functions DSPLIB.

Sine Wave and FFT • A sine wave is a pure tone.Slide 6 . It only contains one frequency: © 2010 Texas Instruments Inc Chapter 4 .

Complex Waveform and FFT • A complex waveform has several frequency components: © 2010 Texas Instruments Inc Chapter 4 .Slide 7 .

© 2010 Texas Instruments Inc Chapter 4 .About Look-up Tables • Advantages: – Fast to implement – Values are always accurate • Disadvantages: – Can only be used for exact divisions of sampling frequency.Slide 10 .

Infinite Impulse Response (IIR) filters.z 1 H ( z)   x(n) 1  2 cosT .

• This method is used by the Texas Instruments DSP Library DSPLIB.Taylor Series • A sine function can be implemented as a geometric series: x x x sin( x)  x    3! 5! 7! where 3 5 7 x is the input in radians.Slide 12 . © 2010 Texas Instruments Inc Chapter 4 .

Slide 13 .About Taylor Series • Advantages: – Can generate any frequency • Disadvantages: – Not as accurate as look-up table because there are rounding errors – Care needs to be taken to avoid overflow during multiplications. © 2010 Texas Instruments Inc Chapter 4 .

Address of location containing the frequency – Parameter 2. © 2010 Texas Instruments Inc Chapter 4 .DSPLIB Sine Function • Is written in TMS320C55xx assembly language. • The function takes 3 parameters: – Parameter 1. Address of location to store calculated sine – Parameter 3.Slide 20 . Always 1.

• Use a scaling factor of 22368.Scaling the sine() function • Need to convert frequency in Hz to value for sine() function.Slide 21 . © 2010 Texas Instruments Inc Chapter 4 .

Slide 22 .000 – –32767 to represent –1.000 • Here 22368 represents 0. • We shall now look at how this magic number was obtained.Magic Numbers • Where did the magic number 22368 come from? • The TMS320C5505 is a 16-bit fixed-point processor that uses: – 32767 to represent 1. © 2010 Texas Instruments Inc Chapter 4 .682 decimal.

• The input to the function is a fixed-point number that represents an angle: – 0 => 0o – 16383 => 90o – 32767 => 180o – 2 * 32767 => 360o © 2010 Texas Instruments Inc Chapter 4 .DSPLIB sine() function • The DSPLIB function sine() calculates the sine of an angle.Slide 23 .

Sine 90o • To generate a waveform using 4 values we use: – sin 0o – sin 90o – sin 180o – sin 270o. • If Fs = 48000 Hz. the frequency generated will be: – 48000/4 = 12000 Hz. © 2010 Texas Instruments Inc Chapter 4 .Slide 24 .

• If Fs = 48000 Hz.Sine 45o • To generate a waveform using 8 value use: – sin 0o – sin 45o – sin 90o – sin 135o etc. © 2010 Texas Instruments Inc Chapter 4 .Slide 25 . the frequency generated will be: – 48000/8 = 6000 Hz.

0075o • For 1 Hz using fixed-point using DSPLIB we require: – 2 * 32767 / 48000 © 2010 Texas Instruments Inc Chapter 4 .Fixed-Point Implementation • For 1 Hz we require each angle to be multiples of: – 360o/48000 = 0.Slide 27 .

0075o • For 2 Hz: – 2 * SCALING FACTOR = 2 * 360o/48000 = 0.Slide 28 .075o © 2010 Texas Instruments Inc Chapter 4 .Scaling Factor • We can use the value for 1 Hz as a scaling factor to calculate other frequencies: • SCALING FACTOR = 360o/48000 = 0.015o • For 10 Hz: – 10 * SCALING FACTOR = 10 * 360o/48000 = 0.

© 2010 Texas Instruments Inc Chapter 4 . divide by 32768 is implemented as >> 15.Scaling Factor Calculation • The fixed-point scaling factor is: 32767 2* 48000 • In fixed-point maths. to divide by 48000 is awkward • However.Slide 29 . to divide by 32768 is easy because 32768 = 215 • Example: To divide 3FFFFFFFh by 32768d shift right 15 places. Result = 7FFFh • In C code.

Slide 30 . • The scaling factor used is therefore 22368.Scaling Factor Calculation • The fixed-point scaling factor is derived as follows: 32767 22368 2*  2* 48000 32768 • The divide by 32768 is implemented as >>15 • Here 2/32768 is implemented as >>14. © 2010 Texas Instruments Inc Chapter 4 .
