Digital filters :advantages disadvantages and uses and esign

January 18th, 2012 Remo No comments

Digital filter advantages
This type fof filter has the greater accuracy.Dital filters are comparatevity cheaper  than the digital filter.The ease of data storage is one of the main advantages of the digital fiters.Implementatipon ofsophisticated algorithm implementation is also very good for the the use of digital filters.Digital filter allows to use of sophisticated algorithm implementation.
Now what is the application of the VLF signals?What we can do in digital filter is that we can process very low frequency signals –signals which cannot be done with the analog filters.

Next we discuss what are the limitation of digital filters.
There is no doubt that digitals filters make the system more complex than the anlog filters.A/D and D/A converters are very much necessary for the application.Beacuse our real world is an anlog one.
For high frequency signals we need to sample as twice of the frequency in concern so because of nyquest criteria.So forhigh frequecy signals samplig frequency becomes a too large which may be a limitation for the A/D converters.

In digital filter the power consumption is more than the anlog filters.
Applications of digital filters:
Digital filters play a major role in thye filed of echo cancellation in telephone networks.In modems ,line repeaters ,channel multiplexing,video conferencing  digital filter has a major role in many application areas of modern days.
In the filed of consumer electronics Tv,radio mp3 player and many song or voice modifiaction applications there are many digital filters are applide.
I image processing application s also digital filters are used.Digital filters are also used iin image compression ,enhancement imeage analysis and recognistion of image s.
Speech processing is a field where digital filters are used .In military application  in radar signal processing the digital filter is an is an essential part.Sonar signal processing is also a place where digital signal processing and use of digital filters are used.
For secure and navigation  digital filters are also used.
Designing digital filters:
How to design a digital filter.Digital filter design is a very important topic in the filed of  digital signal processing.
Design of digital filter is very challenging in the filed of digital filter design.How the digital filters are classified ?
Digital filters are classified based on the fact that how they respond to a unit impulse.

IIR filter:
They are actually the digital counterpart of the analog filters.Thisn this type of filter uses feedback.This filters requires less resources than the FIR filters.

Now what are the problems of high order IIR filters?

The high order IIR filters have or may have problems with the instability,overflow for arith \matic operation.So in this IIR filter require carefulll design to avoid the problems of IIR filters in high order.

How o build a stalker:khitish problem solution 2012

January 18th, 2012 Remo No comments

A simple robot based on khitish criteria.
A robotics contest to be held on khitish at IIT kharagpur.
How to build a line follower robot with another robot following the line follower  robot in another surface.
So if another robot has to follow the robot1 (which is a line folower robot).The another robot  which is follwoing the robot-1 can be any robot but must not be a robot which is not controlled manually.
It should be autonomous and follwing the robot-1 autonomously.
Now robot -1 is following a  a white line in the black surface.In the black surface the robot -1 is moving  and following the white path. Now robot-2 has to follow that path but in  a different surface. The surface may be at te  top of the robot-1 surface.Robot-1 and robot-2 will communicate among each other via wired ln link or wireless link. 
So the probable solution for that is is as follows:
======================================================  
So how we proceed to design such a systems whare robot 2 is following the robot-1 ?
The basic task first just construct the line follower robot. The line follower robot is a well exposed area.there are many good documets about the creation of the line follower robot is given  2 such places i know is here .

///// give line follower robot links
http://projectus.freehost7.com/Line-follower-robot/?a-line-follower-robot
http://blinki.freehost7.com/education/electronics-project-idea/a-simple-line-folloer-robothow-to-do-with-concept/

Now after the line follower robot construction is over then we need to optimise the performance of the line follwer robot as in the following way.
Now how we optimize the performance of the line folllower robot?
How the performance can be optimized that is one of the main crutial task.
So for that reason what we need to do ?
When ever a small turning etc done in the robot-1 that should be  recorded.
NOTE: recorded in this sense means that suppose a 20 degree right turn is made by the robot-1 due to the  white  path nature on the black surface.So if there is a 20 degree turn for the  white line in the black  surface.Then the line follower robot(robot-1)also  have to do a 20 degree turn on the right side.So this information that robot-1 has made a 20 degree right turn is to be passed to robot-2 which is following the robot-1. So the line follwoing robot-1 has to  send the info that 20 degree right turn has made.
How robot-2 is send a signal that 20  degree right turn is made,Say the microcontroller used in robot-1  is responsible for turning at right i mean 
give signal to turn at the right side  by the amoun of 20 degree .

Now question is how to turn a small car at right side??
Answer is: stop the front right motor and rotate the front left motor so that 20 degree turning can be done.
Say for example:A  1/2 rotation of the left front wheel motor make a total 20 degree rotation, so that is recorded( i mean 1/2 rotation).
So that is recorded and send to follower robot-2.Now the follower robot will receive that the info turn right and rotate left front wheel 1/2 rotation.
So this way robot 2 can exactly follow the path of robot 1.
If anybody want the full details of this how to do ??
just join the forum,before joining te forum you can email me .After you email me  and after that i will create the forum account for you,where you can get free suggesstion for that.
I can also supply te the things like circuit digram free with suggesstions. 7 professionals are ready to give you the answers.
So must join the forum and ask others to join the forum.

Blender :Details of Render layer node

October 25th, 2011 Remo No comments

This node is very useful for creating the /composing the 3D scene with a 2D background or may be useful when creating a video footage for the blender.

3d objects are being shown using this node, this node o also shows the image which has been set up at the background., this also enables the back buffer.

What are the compositing sockets in the render layer node ?

Lets see it in details:

Z: distance from the camera (away direction)in the blender usints.

Normal(NOR):when the lights are coming from the sight then how color is affected.

UV: How the image is distorted by the mapped mapping of the UV.

Speed(Vec):This is for the speed of moving object ,it mainly for fast moving object and at which direction the object is moving.

Color(Col):This is for the RGB value s of the color of an image.

Diffuse: The softening c of colors as they diffuse through the m materials

Specular: how the colors will shine when they are added or exposed to the light

Shadow: This is for objects on another object because one object create shadow on another object .

AO: This gives the effect of ambient occlusion on the colors

Reflect(Ref):This is an object and the type of the object are mirror type. This mirror type objects show colors by reflection. This is not the part of the color of the basic material.

Refract: This is the bending of colors when they are passed through objects which are transparent.

Radio(Radiosity):Objects can emit the colors and cast onto the scene.

Index of each object have some numeric ordinal(index) o in the scene when seen by camera.

Creating animations using the best free software named blender

what is blender ??

So Blender is an open source projects for the creating creation of 3D movies ,games and many animation etc,.

All are done by the use of blender.

So when you are using the blender you feel just like many other popular soft wares which are very expensive like MAYA etc but in blender all is free. This is a open source project and you can get it at free of cost and can also use it for your own purpose.

I will now discuss the composing in blender.

What is composing in blender or how composing is done in blender is as follows.

Several images when combined into a single image called composing. An artist may want to combine a 3D element to 2D element .Including the background etc.

In this scenario blender may l help a lot.

How do we compose in blender in blender ??

In blender 2.45

NOW we will discuss the node window in blender.

So what is node window or node editor??

Operation of the monostable pulse generating circuit using OPAMP

September 27th, 2011 Remo No comments

monostable_signal-waveforms

Monostable generation

Here in this circuit the circuit generates a quasi-stable state transition from the stable state.Say the output of the V0= L+ I mean HIGH or Vsat.Now feedback fraction=b=R1/(R1+R2).Now as the output voltage is L+ then voltage at the C terminal is bL+.And as the diode D1 is getting High voltage at the P side so diode D1 is ON.So the voltage at the terminal B is just one dide drop say VD1.So the output remains at L+(I mean HIGH).So thisnis the stable state.BUT diode D2 is OFF as R4 is high.So this is the stable state of the monostable multivibrator.

How we go from stable state to quasi-stable state?

We apply a pulse at the trigger terminal. So then diode D2 will now conduct and the voltage at the C terminal will drop. Now when the voltage at the C terminal drops below voltage at B terminal then the output changes to L- or LOW state so this way HIGH to LOW(quasi-stable) state transition occur.

When back to stable state again from quasi-stable state.

Answer is when the output is at Low voltage (L-) then the voltage at terminal C is bL-.Now as the trigger is removed (because trigger is a very short duration pulse).So now as the diode D1 p-sde has low voltage so DIO D1 will be OFF and the capacitor C1 will try to charge towards L-.So a time will come when the voltage at the B terminal will be less than bL- and then output of the OPAMP go to L+ state again. But still this is not the stable state. Stable state will be achieved when the diode D1 will be On again.

What is recovery time

When the capacitor C1 will discharged as output (point A ) is L+. So C1 will discharge first and then when voltage at point B is more than diode potential barrier then diode D1 will be ON and then current will be flown via A to D1 and voltage at point B is again one diode drop.So stable state achieved. The time required to discharge the C1 is called recovery time.

Mono stable Multivibrator using IC 555:Details

untitled

fig2

See the figure and I will explain that to you.

First initially the SR Flip flop is in RESET state. Those who donot know what a flip flop is just keep remembering that it has 2 inputs named S and R and two outputs named as Q and Q_bar.If Q is HIGh then Q_BAR is low and vice versa. Note. Whan S=1 R=0 Then Q=HIGH and when S=0,R=1 Then Flip flop is in reset state. And When S=0,R=0 Then it is in no change state and Q and Q_bar value remains at it was earlier for other values of S and R. Here S-R kind of flip flop is being used.

So initially the flip flop is in reset state that means Q=LOW and the output of the Flip flop may be thought as HIGH ,another thing need to remember is that The trigger PIN is initially kept at a voltage higher than the VTL. So when the situation is like this then as VTH=2/3VCC and VTL=1/3VCC(because of the voltage divider network –voltage VCC is divided in three parts by using 3 equal registers).So What is the output of comparator1 :It is LOW.Why ?Because as Q is LOW so the Q_Bar is HIGH and this turns ON the transistor and as the point C is connected with the collector of the transistor so the voltage is zero there. Now consider the comparator 1 output ,it has Voltage LOW at +ve terminal than the voltage at the –ve terminal so output is LOW. For comparator 2 as the –ve terminal is maintained at a voltage more than VTL so the output is also LOW. So what we got –the outputs of the both comparators are low-So SR flip flop state remains unchanged –that means output will be at stable stage LOW.

What happens when we apply a trigger:

When we apply a trigger at the trigger terminal having pulse height lesser than VTL then output of comparator 2 is HIGH and output of comparator 1 is LOW, So this combination of S and R will set the flip-flop and so the output is HIGH now. So Q_bar is LOW and then and transistor goes OFF. So this way we reached at Quasi-stable state from the stable state.

How long to stay at Quasi-stable state ?

Now when it goes to quasi-stable state then as point C is no longer connected to ground via the transistor as transistor is OFF NOW so the capacitor begins charging so voltage at point C go on increasing ,as the capacitor will try to charge towards VCC so a time will come when the voltage at point C will exceed the VTH , Then the output of the comparator1 will go HIGH and the comparator 2 has LOW output because triggering pulse gone. So this is the RESET condition and the Flip flop will reset and the Q=LOW again. Q_bar is HIGH and transistor will be ON and then voltage at point C will now go towards zero after discharge of the charge capacitor stored the voltage at C is completely zero and so recovery done and multivibrator is aging at the stable state LOW.

Motor control using simple Schmitt trigger.

September 27th, 2011 Remo No comments

motor

Hello here we will see how we can control the speed of a DC motor by using a Schmitt trigger IC.Note the speed of the motor can be controlled by various ways ,may be by reducing the DC voltage across the motor etc .

But here we will follow the most conventional way of reducing/increasing the speed of the motor.The basic principle is if say the motor operates at speed 5 V DC then if this is done by sending a pulse of period say x with x/2 ti,e it has 5V and x/2 time it has 0 V. That means we are sending a square wave with 50% duty cycle.Because 50% of the time period we have HIGH voltage across the Motor(5V) and 50% of the time period we have 0 V across the motor.So what will be the result?

The answer is motor will rotate no doubt.But if we increase duty cycle more ? then ? then the speed of the motor will increase because the motor will now have the DC voltage across it more time,because we increased the duty cycle.How we increased te duty cycle ?simple just now we made a square wave such that 75% of time now there is HGH voltage across the motor and 25% of time there is 0V across the motor.So on the average the motor is getting more voltage in the sense that within one time period of the pulse that is being applied then motor is getting more average voltage when the dutry cycle is HIGH.

Actually what we do is that we configure an astable mutivibrartor such a way that its duty cycle can be varied using a potentiometer. So as the duty cycle can be varied then how this is used with the motor? The answer is the motor is connected with a transistor and the astable output is given at the base of transistor. So the transistor will be made on/off based on the duty cycle that way the Motor will be connected or unconnected with the supply at the same rate as the transistor will be ON/OFF. So this way the speed of the motor can be increased and decreased.

Tips to get success in Joint entrance examination

February 27th, 2011 Remo No comments

As we all know that getting success in   exam like JEE or WBJEE can change your life.If the score is high I man if the ranking is good then you may get chance to a reputed college or university and can have an engineering degree. Now how to prepare for that exam.Here are some tips and suggestions that will help you if you want to get success to the JEEE examination. First   of all as you need to prepare the JEE or WBJEE or AIEEE examination during your study. So fix a time for the study of the Higher secondary examinations.

 

Now How to be prepared when you are studying the   as well ? So try to understand the concepts of the things when you study because if you just remember the problems etc and the solutions so that will not make you a better problem solver (by problem I mean the may be problems associated with physics chemistry or associated with mathematics)

So try to understand them well and see how the formulas etc are used and at which situation the formulas need to used. That can only be achieved via practice.

So when ever you find similar situation then you can apply those formulas.

A problem solving mind :try to grow within yourself.

For example when ever a problem given say a physics related problem is given :first see what are the given information in that problem then apply the appropriate formulas and then try to solve.It is worthy to note that you have to have keep in mind the formulas. Some may argue that we can derive some formulas when needed,so why to remember them-For them I will say time is a very critical factor in competitive examinations. So be aware of that.

Next Try to devote a fixed amount of time each day on the preparation of specifically    for the preparation of WB-JEE examination(Joint entracnce examination)..

Then practice regularly the problem sets.

Many people ask me is that is it   worthy to go for WB-JEE coaching for high price ?Really speaking they may help or may not be as helpful as you think.

Why ? The reason there is no other alternative except hard work if you want to stick to a life of honesty. So donot think that if your child is not well in study and I mean not studious and will get a best result just by spending 10 -15 thousand rupees ,then either you are never did well in study or just prefer to buy a rank –but that is not possible(as I think and if the system OK).What   I mean that tutorial center may show just a way –they have some teachers but do you really think they have the best teachers or the good quality teachers than school. I don’t think so –so teach your son/daughter how to get best help from the teachers available at school. Believe me many teachers are there if they found that your  son/daughter is good in behavior and   studious they will help a lot.

 

So you must be studious to get a good rank inWb-JEE or JEE or AIEEE or Joint entrance examination.

 

Operation of n-channel enhancement type MOSFET :Device operation of MOSFET

February 27th, 2011 Remo No comments

To understand that first note that enhancement MOSFETs are normally OFF device. Now what is meant by normally off device?
Means if we apply a source to drain voltage then no current will flow.
The reason behind  is that  
There are 3 regions based o the application of gate to source voltage.
Suppose we are considering the n-channel enhancement type MOSFET.
For that n-channel enhancement type MOSFET there are 3 regions and they are accumulation, depletion and the inversion.
.
Now suppose for the n-channel enhancement type MOSFET we applied a fixed drain to source voltage and we are varying the  gate to source voltage -2,-1,0,1,2,3,4,5.
Now what will happen when the gate to source voltage is-2 volt. Suppose source is at potential 0V and drain is at potential 5 volt.
Now when the source voltage is at zero volt and gate to source voltage is -2 volt then what happens inside the device. At gate the voltage is now-2 Volt. So at the one end of the insulator(silicon di-oxide) there is now  -ve   induced charges and at the other end(insulator –semiconductor interface at the insulator side).
Then as the induced charges at the insulator-semiconductor interface(at the insulator side) in negative now so at the semiconductor side positive holes will be attracted or accumulation region results.
This is called accumulation because its is actually the accumulation of holes for n-channel device(I mean n-channel MOSFTET).Then when we apply  a positive voltage say 1 V at the gate terminal then due to positive charges induced at the semiconductor and gate and at the insulator and semiconductor interface positive charges induced and due to that fact  there will be a depletion of the positive holes at the interface as the holes will now be repelled from the surface of insulator-semiconductor at the semiconductor site and the minority electrons  will be attracted ,  for that when minority electrons are get at attracted towards that interface say still that number of electrons are not   sufficient to from the channel. So still we will not get any drain to source current .This is depletion region(we call).Now when the gate to source voltage is greater than  the threshold voltage of the device then the device will be on and at that time inversion will occur and a channel will be induced ,this is electrically induced channel not the channel present by structure as in depletion type MOSFET.

Now what is meant by inversion ?
The  answer is that the p region in between the source an the drain will be inverted and will form a n-channel.
Say for example the device has the threshold voltage say 2 V.
So if gate to source voltage is greater than 2 volt then inversion will occur and we will get a current flowing from drain to source.
