# 0.5 Sampling with automatic gain control  (Page 16/19)

 Page 16 / 19

The term ${a}^{2}{r}^{2}\left(kT\right)$ inside the parentheses is equal to ${s}^{2}\left[k\right]$ . The term $a{r}^{2}\left(kT\right)$ outside the parentheses is not directly available to the assessment mechanism, though it can reasonably beapproximated by $\frac{{s}^{2}\left[k\right]}{a}$ . Substituting the derivative into [link] and evaluating at $a=a\left[k\right]$ gives the algorithm

$a\left[k+1\right]=a\left[k\right]-\mu \text{avg}\left\{\left({s}^{2}\left[k\right]-{\mathbf{s}}^{2}\right),\frac{{s}^{2}\left[k\right]}{a\left[k\right]}\right\}.$

Care must be taken when implementing [link] that $a\left[k\right]$ does not approach zero.

Of course, ${J}_{LS}\left(a\right)$ of [link] is not the only possible goal for the AGC problem.What is important is not the exact form of the performance function, but where the performance function has its optimal points.Another performance function that has a similar error surface (peek ahead to [link] ) is

$\begin{array}{cc}\hfill {J}_{N}\left(a\right)& =\text{avg}\left\{|a|\left(\frac{{s}^{2}\left[k\right]}{3}-{\mathbf{s}}^{2}\right)\right\}\hfill \\ & =\text{avg}\left\{|a|\left(\frac{{a}^{2}{r}^{2}\left(kT\right)}{3}-{\mathbf{s}}^{2}\right)\right\}.\hfill \end{array}$

Taking the derivative gives

$\begin{array}{ccc}\hfill \frac{d{J}_{N}\left(a\right)}{da}& =& \frac{d\text{avg}\left\{|a|\left(\frac{{a}^{2}{r}^{2}\left(kT\right)}{3}-{\mathbf{s}}^{2}\right)\right\}}{da}\hfill \\ & \approx & \text{avg}\left\{\frac{d|a|\left(\frac{{a}^{2}{r}^{2}\left(kT\right)}{3}-{\mathbf{s}}^{2}\right)}{da}\right\}\hfill \\ & =& \text{avg}\left\{\text{sgn}\left(a\left[k\right]\right)\left({s}^{2}\left[k\right]-{\mathbf{s}}^{2}\right)\right\},\hfill \end{array}$

where the approximation arises from swapping the order of the differentiation and the averagingand where the derivative of $|·|$ is the signum or sign function, which holds as long as the argument is nonzero.Evaluating this at $a=a\left[k\right]$ and substituting into [link] gives another AGC algorithm

$a\left[k+1\right]=a\left[k\right]-\mu \phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}\text{avg}\left\{\text{sgn}\left(a\left[k\right]\right)\left({s}^{2}\left[k\right]-{\mathbf{s}}^{2}\right)\right\}.$

Consider the “logic” of this algorithm. Suppose that $a$ is positive. Since $\mathbf{s}$ is fixed,

$\begin{array}{cc}\hfill \text{avg}\left\{\text{sgn}\left(a\left[k\right]\right)\left({s}^{2}\left[k\right]-{\mathbf{s}}^{2}\right)\right\}& =\text{avg}\left\{\left({s}^{2}\left[k\right]-{\mathbf{s}}^{2}\right)\right\}\hfill \\ & =\text{avg}\left\{{s}^{2}\left[k\right]\right\}-{\mathbf{s}}^{2}.\hfill \end{array}$

Thus, if the average energy in $s\left[k\right]$ exceeds ${\mathbf{s}}^{2}$ , $a$ is decreased. If the average energy in $s\left[k\right]$ is less than ${\mathbf{s}}^{2}$ , $a$ is increased. The update ceases when $\text{avg}\left\{{s}^{2}\left[k\right]\right\}\approx {\mathbf{s}}^{2}$ , that is, where ${a}^{2}\approx \frac{{\mathbf{s}}^{2}}{{r}^{2}}$ , as desired. (An analogous logic applies when $a$ is negative.)

The two performance functions [link] and [link] define the updates for the two adaptive elements in [link] and [link] . ${J}_{LS}\left(a\right)$ minimizes the square of the deviation of the power in $s\left[k\right]$ from the desired power ${\mathbf{s}}^{2}$ . This is a kind of “least square” performance function(hence the subscript LS). Such squared-error objectives are common, and will reappear in phase trackingalgorithms in Chapter  [link] , in clock recovery algorithms in Chapter  [link] , and in equalization algorithms in Chapter  [link] . On the other hand, the algorithm resulting from ${J}_{N}\left(a\right)$ has a clear logical interpretation (the $N$ stands for naive'), and the update is simpler, since [link] has fewer terms and no divisions.

To experiment concretely with these algorithms, agcgrad.m provides an implementation in M atlab . It is easy to control the rate at which $a\left[k\right]$ changes by choice of stepsize: a larger $\mu$ allows $a\left[k\right]$ to change faster, while a smaller $\mu$ allows greater smoothing. Thus, $\mu$ can be chosen by the system designer to trade off the bandwidth of $a\left[k\right]$ (the speed at which $a\left[k\right]$ can track variations in the energy levels of the incoming signal) versus theamount of jitter or noise. Similarly, the length over which the averaging is done (specified by the parameter lenavg ) will also affect the speed of adaptation;longer averages imply slower moving, smoother estimates while shorter averages imply faster moving, more jittery estimates.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
