An Efficient Full-Band Sliding DFT Spectrum Analyzer

Rick Lyon's Blog on DSPRelated -

In this blog I present two computationally efficient full-band discrete Fourier transform (DFT) networks that compute the 0th bin and all the positive-frequency bin outputs for an N-point DFT in real-time on a sample-by-sample basis.

An Even-N Spectrum Analyzer

The full-band sliding DFT (SDFT) spectrum analyzer network, where the DFT size N is an even integer, is shown in Figure 1(a). The...

A Simpler Goertzel Algorithm

Rick Lyon's Blog on DSPRelated -

In this blog I propose a Goertzel algorithm that is simpler than the version of the Goertzel algorithm that is traditionally presented DSP textbooks. Below I very briefly describe the DSP textbook version of the Goertzel algorithm followed by a description of my proposed simpler algorithm.

The Traditional DSP Textbook Goertzel Algorithm

The so-called Goertzel algorithm is used to...

60-Hz Noise and Baseline Drift Reduction in ECG Signal Processing

Rick Lyon's Blog on DSPRelated -

Electrocardiogram (ECG) signals are obtained by monitoring the electrical activity of the human heart for medical diagnostic purposes [1]. This blog describes a very efficient digital filter used to reduce both 60 Hz AC power line noise and unwanted signal baseline drift that often contaminate ECG signals.

We'll first describe the ECG noise reduction filter and then examine the filter's...
