Application of the FPAA to Sample Input Signal for Laboratory Exercise: Pulse Amplitude Modulation

Lukas Chruszczyk, Damian Grzechca


This paper presents exemplary exercise on the fundamentals of signal processing course which is offered for second year bachelor level students. Application of Field Programmable Analog Array (FPAA) for pulse amplitude modulation (PAM) exercise is described with signal processing laboratory. There are presented two methods for implementing PAM modulation and demodulation technique in FPAA module. Example configuration files are available form Authors’ web site.
