# 0.5 Sampling with automatic gain control  (Page 14/19)

 Page 14 / 19

Consider performing an iterative maximization of

$J\left(x\right)=8-6|x|+6cos\left(6x\right)$

via [link] with the sign on the update reversed (so that the algorithm will maximize ratherthan minimize). Suppose the initialization is $x\left[0\right]=0.7$ .

1. Assuming the use of a suitably small stepsize $\mu$ , determine the convergent value of $x$ .
2. Is the convergent value of $x$ in part (a) the global maximum of $J\left(x\right)$ ? Justify your answer by sketching the error surface.

Suppose that a unimodal single-variable performance function has only one point with zeroderivative and that all points have a positive second derivative. TRUE or FALSE: A gradient descent methodwill converge to the global minimum from any initialization.

Consider the modulated signal

$r\left(t\right)=w\left(t\right)cos\left(2\pi {f}_{c}t+\Phi \right)$

where the absolute bandwidth of the baseband message waveform $w\left(t\right)$ is less than ${f}_{c}/2$ . The signals $x$ and $y$ are generated via

$\begin{array}{cc}\hfill x\left(t\right)& =\text{LPF}\left\{r\left(t\right)cos\left(2\pi {f}_{c}t+\theta \right)\right\}\hfill \\ \hfill y\left(t\right)& =\text{LPF}\left\{r\left(t\right)sin\left(2\pi {f}_{c}t+\theta \right)\right\}\hfill \end{array}$

where the LPF cutoff frequency is ${f}_{c}/2$ .

1. Determine $x\left(t\right)$ in terms of $w\left(t\right)$ , ${f}_{c}$ , $\Phi$ , and $\theta$ .
2. Show that
$\frac{\partial }{\partial \theta }\left\{\frac{1}{2}{x}^{2}\left(t\right)\right\}=-x\left(t\right)y\left(t\right)$
using the fact that derivatives and filters commute as in [link] .
3. Determine the values of $\theta$ maximizing ${x}^{2}\left(t\right)$ .

Consider the function

$J\left(x\right)={\left(1,-,|,x,-,2,|\right)}^{2}.$
1. Sketch $J\left(x\right)$ for $-5\le x\le 5$ .
2. Analytically determine all local minima and maxima of $J\left(x\right)$ for $-5\le x\le 5$ . Hint: $\frac{d\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}|f\left(b\right)|}{db}=\mathrm{sign}\left(f\left(b\right)\right)\frac{d\phantom{\rule{3.33333pt}{0ex}}f\left(b\right)}{db}$ where $\mathrm{sign}\left(a\right)$ is defined in [link] .
3. Is $J\left(x\right)$ unimodal as a function of $x$ ? Explain your answer.
4. Develop an iterative gradient descent algorithm for updating $x$ to minimize $J$ .
5. For an initial estimate of $x=1.2$ , what is the convergent value of $x$ determined by an iterative gradient descent algorithm with a satisfactorily small stepsize.
6. Compute the direction (either increasing $x$ or decreasing $x$ ) of the update from (d) for $x=1.2$ .
7. Does the direction determined in part (f) point from $x=1.2$ toward the convergent value of part (e)? Should it (for a correct answer to (e))? Explain your answer.

## Automatic gain control

Any receiver is designed to handle signals of a certain average magnitude most effectively. The goal of an AGC is toamplify weak signals and to attenuate strong signals so that they remain (as much as possible) within the normaloperating range of the receiver. Typically, the rate at which the gain varies is slow compared with the data rate, though itmay be fast by human standards.

The power in a received signal depends on many things: the strength of the broadcast, the distance from the transmitter to the receiver, thedirection in which the antenna is pointed, and whether there are any geographic features such as mountains (or tall buildings) that block,reflect, or absorb the signal. While more power is generally better from the point of view of trying to decipher the transmitted message,there are always limits to the power handling capabilities of the receiver. Hence if the received signal is too large (on average), itmust be attenuated. Similarly, if the received signal is weak (on average), then it must be amplified.

[link] shows the two extremes that the AGC is designed to avoid. In part (a), the signal is much larger than the levels of thesampling device (indicated by the horizontal lines). The gain must be made smaller. In part (b), the signal ismuch too small to be captured effectively, and the gain must increased.

how can chip be made from sand
is this allso about nanoscale material

what are the products of Nano chemistry?
There are lots of products of nano chemistry... Like nano coatings.....carbon fiber.. And lots of others..
learn
Even nanotechnology is pretty much all about chemistry... Its the chemistry on quantum or atomic level
learn

yes
narayan
what is variations in raman spectra for nanomaterials
ya I also want to know the raman spectra
Bhagvanji
I only see partial conversation and what's the question here!
what about nanotechnology for water purification
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct
Professor
I think
Professor
Nasa has use it in the 60's, copper as water purification in the moon travel.
Alexandre
nanocopper obvius
Alexandre
what is the stm
is there industrial application of fullrenes. What is the method to prepare fullrene on large scale.?
Rafiq
industrial application...? mmm I think on the medical side as drug carrier, but you should go deeper on your research, I may be wrong
Damian
How we are making nano material?
what is a peer
What is meant by 'nano scale'?
What is STMs full form?
LITNING

what is simplest way to understand the applications of nano robots used to detect the cancer affected cell of human body.? How this robot is carried to required site of body cell.? what will be the carrier material and how can be detected that correct delivery of drug is done Rafiq
Rafiq
if virus is killing to make ARTIFICIAL DNA OF GRAPHENE FOR KILLED THE VIRUS .THIS IS OUR ASSUMPTION
Anam
analytical skills graphene is prepared to kill any type viruses .
Anam
Any one who tell me about Preparation and application of Nanomaterial for drug Delivery
