Module 12: Introduction to Sampling
Objective: To Understand the concept of Sampling a signal its reconstruction and various
methods of Sampling
Module Introduction:
In the applications of signal processing in real time systems, the mathematical description of
signals will not be available. To find the characteristics of the signals, they must be measured
and analyzed .If the signal is unknown, the process of analysis starts with the acquisition of the
signal, which means measuring and recording the signals over a period of time.Sampling is the
acquisition of a continuous signal at discrete time intervals. After Sampling, the analog signal is
represented at discrete times only, with the values of the samples equal to those of the original
analog signal at the discrete times. In the process of Analog to Digital conversion of a signal,
the signal is first sampled, converting a continuous ,analog signal into a discrete time,
continuous amplitude signal. Next comes the process of Quantization and digitization. The
present Module focuses on the methods of sampling a given low pass signal and its
reconstruction from its sampled version.
Module Description:
ο· A Band-pass signal is a signal containing a band of frequencies i.e. its magnitude
spectrum ranges over two frequency limits i.e. ππΏ πππ€ππ πππππ’ππππ¦ πππππ‘ β
0 πππ ππ» π’ππππ πππππ’ππππ¦ πππππ‘ β 0 .
ο· A Band-pass Signal is a signal x ( t) whose Fourier transform X( f ) is nonzero only in some
small band around some βcentralβ frequency f o.
ο·
A Low pass signal is also a band-pass signal with lower frequency limit ππΏ = 0. Then, the
upper frequency limit ππ» (β 0) is referred to as Band-limiting frequency of the signal,
and the Low pass signal is also referred to as band-limited signal.

ο·
A signal x(t) band-limited to B Hz will have its Fourier transform π π = 0πππ π > π΅
Sampling Theorem for a Band limited signal is stated as:
βA signal m(t) band limited to ππ π»π§ can be specified in terms of its samples taken for

every ππ β€ 2π π ππ, where ππ is referred to as Sampling interval.
π
The same can be expressed as ππ β₯ 2ππ π»π§ i.e. samples/sec where, ππ is the sampling
frequency.
ο Ideal Sampling(Instantaneous Sampling):
ο Ideal Sampling describes a sampled signal as a weighted sum of impulses, with
weights being equal to the values of the analog signal at the location of the
impulses.
ο An ideally sampled signal may be regarded as the product of an analog signal x(t)
and a periodic impulse train.
Where π π‘ = β
π=ββ πΏ( π‘ β πππ ) is the sampling signal which is a periodic impulse
Train, with a period of ππ , which is referred to as Sampling period or Sampling interval.
ο Sampled Signal π¦(t)= π₯(t).π (t) = π₯(t).

ο Because of the sampling property of the unit impulse , multiplying x(t) by a unit
impulse samples the value of the signal at the point at which the impulse is
located i.e.π₯ π‘ . πΏ π‘ β π‘0 = π₯ π‘0 . πΏ π‘ β π‘0
ο The discrete signal x(n) represents the sequence of sample values π₯(πππ )
ο The above π¦ (t) in frequency domain is the convolution of the respective signals
ο Periodic impulse train in time domain is also a periodic impulse train in
frequency domain.
ο Since, convolution with an impulse simply shifts a signal i.e{.π π β
πΏ π β π0 = π π β π0 }, it follows that π π = β
π=ββ π π β πππ .
ο Thus, π π is a periodic function of π, consisting of shifted replicas of π(π)
ο The trigonometric Fourier series representation of s(t) is given by

ο Thus, sampling in time domain results in periodicity in frequency domain.

whose spectra are symmetric about the respective carrier frequencies.
ο The spectrum of π¦ (t) is same as original analog spectrum, but repeats at
multiples of sampling frequency ππ .
ο These higher order components which are centered on the multiples of ππ are
referred to as image frequencies.

ο The image frequencies centered about ππ will fold over or alias into the baseband
frequencies.
