Can the response of an LTI system to x(t)=sinc(t) be y(t)=sinc2(t)? Justify your answer. For a low-pass signal with a bandwidth of 5000 Hz, what is the minimum sampling frequency for perfect reconstruction of the signal? What is the minimum required sampling frequency if a guard band of 1000 Hz is required? Show that the energy content of a signal is equal to the energy content of its Hilbert transform. The message signal m(t)=2 cos400t + 4 sin(500t+ )modulates the carrier signal c(t)=A cos(8000πt), using DSB amplitude modulation. Find power content of the modulated signal. What is the total channel bandwidth required to transmit the video and audio signals and justify the answer? Find the smallest value of the modulation index in an FM system that guarantees that all the modulated signal power is contained in the sidebands and no power is transmitted at the carrier frequency.

If a delta modulator has the message signal m(t)=6cos(20πt)+4 sin(40πt), then determine the minimum sampling frequency required to prevent slope overload , assuming that the step size of the modulator is 0.2π. For PCM with n=8 , determine the output SNR for a Gaussian signal. (2 x 10) A linear time-invariant system with impulse responseh(t)=e−αt cos(βt)u−1(t) is driven by the input x(t) =e−βtu−1(t).
