INCLUDED COURSE LABS
systems given their step responses, apply graphical convolution to
calculate the system output for a non-standard signal shape, and then compare
their calculations to simulation and hardware.This project is focused on Multisim and NI ELVIS.
Step Response of a Second-Order LCCDE
Car Suspension Analog Model
automobile suspension system. This project is focused on Multisim and NI ELVIS.
Proportional Control System
Fourier Series Demonstrator
Transform (FFT), and then study the effect of filter parameters such as cutoff
frequency and filter order on the processed image. The project utilizes LabVIEW with MathScript RT Module.
uniform motion blur, the special case of constant relative velocity between
the camera and subject. With knowledge of the blurring mechanism students
will create and implement an inverse filter to deblur the image via LabVIEW.
specified target values for DC gain and cutoff frequency. Once they have
confirmed that the filter design meets specifications students will investigate
the filter’s ability to suppress high-frequency noise superimposed on a digital-like information signal.
AM Radio Simulator
audio signal viewer to simultaneously display the frequency spectrum and
time-domain representations of any desired signal in the system and play
the signal on the sound card. This project will be done using LabVIEW.
Convolution Reverb Audio Effect
subVI Convolution as a means to convolve small sequences, and then apply
this subVI to implement the student's own convolution reverb audio effect.
Notch and Comb Filters
between Neil Armstrong and NASA Mission Control to determine the frequencies
of the “NASA beeps” and then design notch and comb filters to
eliminate the beeps. This is accomplished through the LabVIEW with MathScript RT Module.
