Asked by umar on 17 Dec 2011

Write a MATLAB routine that generally computes the discrete convolution between two discrete signals in time-domain. (Do not use the standard MATLAB “conv” function.) • Apply your routine to compute the convolution rect( t / 4 )*rect( 2 t / 3 ).

*No products are associated with this question.*

just implement the equation http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Convolution#Circular_discrete_convolution and use sum from 1 to N instead of 0 to N-1

I think Naz has given you some direction here, but you have just posted your homework problem. If you show what you have coded in trying to solve your homework problem, people are generally more helpful.

If i use below coding, how to put rect(t/4) and rect(2t/3)in x and h? Please can anyone answer this?

% A GENERALAZED CONVOLUTION COMPUTING CODE IN MATLAB WITHOUT USING MATLAB BUILTIN FUNCTION conv(x,h)

close all

clear all

x=input('Enter x: ')

h=input('Enter h: ')

m=length(x);

n=length(h);

X=[x,zeros(1,n)];

H=[h,zeros(1,m)];

for i=1:n+m-1

Y(i)=0;

for j=1:m

if(i-j+1>0)

Y(i)=Y(i)+X(j)*H(i-j+1);

else

end

end

end

Y

stem(Y);

ylabel('Y[n]');

xlabel('----->n');
