2. What is the peak side lobe(in dB) for a Hanning window?

a) -13

b) -27

c) -32

d) -58

View Answer

Explanation: The peak side lobe in the case of Hanning window has a value of -32dB.

3. How does the frequency of oscillations in the pass band of a low pass filter varies with the value of M?

a) Decrease with increase in M

b) Increase with increase in M

c) Remains constant with increase in M

d) None of the mentioned

View Answer

Explanation: The frequency of oscillations in the pass band of a low pass filter increases with an increase in the value of M, but they do not diminish in amplitude.

a) True

b) False

View Answer

Explanation: The multiplication of hd(n) with a rectangular window is identical to truncating the Fourier series representation of the desired filter characteristic Hd(ω). The truncation of Fourier series is known to introduce ripples in the frequency response characteristic H(ω) due to the non-uniform convergence of the Fourier series at a discontinuity. The oscillatory behavior near the band edge of the low pass filter is known as Gibbs phenomenon.

5. Which of the following window is used in the design of a low pass filter to have a frequency response as shown in the figure?

a) Hamming window

b) Hanning window

c) Kaiser window

d) Blackman window

View Answer

Explanation: The frequency response shown in the figure is the frequency response of a low pass filter designed using a Blackman window of length M=61.

6. Which of the following window is used in the design of a low pass filter to have a frequency response as shown in the figure?

a) Hamming window

b) Hanning window

c) Kaiser window

d) Blackman window

View Answer

Explanation: The frequency response shown in the figure is the frequency response of a low pass filter designed using a Kaiser window of length M=61 and α=4.

7. What is the approximate transition width of main lobe of a Blackman window?

a) 4π/M

b) 8π/M

c) 12π/M

d) 2π/M

View Answer

Explanation: The transition width of the main lobe in the case of Blackman window is equal to 12π/M where M is the length of the window.

a) Bartlett window

b) Blackman window

c) Hamming window

d) Hanning window

View Answer

9. If the value of M increases then the main lobe in the frequency response of the rectangular window becomes broader.

a) True

b) False

View Answer

Explanation: Since the width of the main lobe is inversely proportional to the value of M, if the value of M increases then the main lobe becomes narrower.

10. The large side lobes of W(ω) results in which of the following undesirable effects?

a) Circling effects

b) Broadening effects

c) Ringing effects

d) None of the mentioned

View Answer

Explanation: The larger side lobes of W(ω) results in the undesirable ringing effects in the FIR filter frequency response H(ω), and also in relatively large side lobes in H(ω).
