Picture of the day

Could DSP produce some sort of modern art on some occasion ? Do you want to reproduce that ? Well, here is the recipe … Get a function generator and set the signal pattern to ramp, sweep frequencies from 80 to 90 Hz with 0.1 Hz steps every second. Connect the output to PlainDSP* and starting […]

Random number generator (Part 2)

Part 1, 2, 3 Here is a noisy signal sampled at 100 kHz with an Arduino UNO. The signal has 8 bits of resolution and the divider bridge of the final amplifying stage has been set so that the ADC range matches (without exceeding) the input signal range. Here is the illustration of a vector of 1024 […]

Raymond McNamara from the NUI Galway committed his final year works to “Embedded Implementation of Embedded Algorithms of Power System Monitoring” Quality of AC power is definitely a contemporary problem. Many disturbances are generated by the variety of power sources including, and the list is non-exhaustive, solar power, wind power, hydroelectric power. Harmonic frequencies in the […]

Publication of the day

Students from the Vaughn College, Flushing, NY, USA published a very interesting paper  on Aid Device for Deaf Drivers. [Download here]. They use FFT in order to extract specific sounds such as honks from a noisy environment in order to trigger a vibrating device located in the drivers’s seat. As they used some of the information published on, […]

Doppler Effect

Have you ever wonder why the sound from the honk of a car changes as the car travels next to you. While in the same time, the driver of this same car swears that the sound of his honk did not change a bit while he was sitting in the car! Who is right? Well, have […]

Extremely Low Frequency Electro Magnetic Field Sensing (Part 5)

Part 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 Time for upgrade. The pretty popular ELFEMF posts were prepared before the obsolescence of PlainADC and PlainFFT libraries.  Next is the revised code for the detection of Extremely Low Frequency Electromagnetic Fields which is compatible with PlainDSP library. So simple and yet powerful application! Enjoy. /* MicroELF_EMF: Electrical radiation measurement Revision 03 Applicable license […]

Publication of the day

I am very glad to announce the first official publication involving the PlainDSP kit and the team behind the scene. We also congratulate Kostas and his team for designing such an awesome detector. Although PlainDSP kits can be used in the context of ludic applications, it provides all the means necessary for the design of much […]

[HOWTO] PlainDSP audio shield: M2M Communication system

The Critical Tinkers team recently achieved an amazing application based on the plaindsp kit. The M2M protocol they developed provides a smart way to send information to an Arduino board using a plaindsp audio shield from any sound emitting device (e.g. a cell phone). Next video is a teaser which demonstrates the principle of operation, as long […]



Getting started with the DUE (Part 2)

Part [-1, 0] 1, 2 I got a mail with an interesting question (Thanks Andrew!) regarding the performances of the DUE versus the UNO using PlainFFT.   I built this simple sketch based on the example which comes with the PlainFFT package: #include “PlainFFT.h” #include “math.h” PlainFFT FFT; /* Create FFT object */ /* Simulation parameters */ #define TWO_PI 6.283185307179586476925286766559 const […]
