Familiarization with Basic CT/DT functions

Objective

The basic objective of this lab was to be familiar with MATLAB, one of the most famous tools used in Signal Analysis and Processing.

Theory

Impulse Signal

The impulse function, also known as Dirac delta function or Dirac impulse, is defined by

Ramp and Step Signals

The step signal is zero for negative input and one for positive. Thus, it is defined by

Whereas, provided a width parameter, if a step signal is modeled than its a ramp signal characterized by following mathematical relation. Hence, a step signal is that ramp which has width parameter zero.

Rectangular Signal

A Rectangular signal is defined by

Exercise

1. Plot the basic signal using matlab.

a. Impulse Signal

N =15; y =[zeros(1,(N–1)/2) 1 zeros(1,(N–1)/2)] x =[-( N - 1 ) /2 ) : ( N – 1 ) /2 ] stem(x,y)

Discussion: An assumed infinity of 15 points was taken and the impulse signal of having infinite magnitude at a single time instant was generated.

b. Unit Step Signal N=15 y=[zeros(1,(N-1)/2) 1 ones(1,(N-1)/2)] x=[-(N-1)/2:(N-1)/2] stem(x,y)

Discussion: Plotted such that magnitude at the negative axis is zero and that at the positive axis is unity.

c. Ramp Signal N=15 y=[zeros(1,(N-1)/2) ,0 , 1: (N-1)/2] x=[-(N-1)/2:(N-1)/2] stem(x,y)

Discussion y=0 for x0

d. Rectangular Signal N=15 y=[zeros(1,(N-1)/3) ones(1,N -(N-1)/3*2) zeros(1,(N-1)/3)] x=[-(N-1)/2:(N-1)/2] stem(x,y)

2. Plot the
