Tips for Budding DSP Engineers
We just wanted to share a few empircal observations and suggestions for anyone
interested in a similar project.
- Make sure you use current-limiting resistors in amplifier circuits. Burnt silicon smells
astonishing foul, especially in quantity.
- Always saw hardwood at a low speed. Otherwise you'll scorch it. While scorched hardwood
actually smells rather nice, it probably isn't the result you want.
- Check your sampling rate carefully. Excessive oversampling will give you a really bizzare
- Don't eat yellow snow.
- When designing a test system, don't forget the very real problem of generating an impulse.
How are you going to do it?
- Be sure to BACK UP YOUR DATA in case Owlnet eats it. Sigh.
- Don't be afraid to capture too much data. You can always discard it later.
- Mediocrity: It takes a lot less time and most people won't notice the difference
until it's too late.
- If possible, account for noise. Low/highpass filtering can take care of this.
