    You need to sample it at twice the maximum cut-off frequency of the
    frequency spectrum of the signal.


  • Vijay ….Re. CRC codes ….

    You need the best book on Error Control Coding ever written

    ‘Error Control Coding An Introduction’ ISBN 0-13-284126-6 (1991 soft cover edition)
    by Dr Peter Sweeney of Surrey University, Guildford, Surrey, UK.

    Looks like there was a reprint in 2002, if you can’t get it anywhere else, I suspect the Surrey University bookshop will have copies.

    The easiest, nicest explaination of FEC under the sun and as one of his old students I have to say a very nce guy.

    Cheers, E.T.

  • I didn’t hear the 16kHz sound, but I do hear that sound that TVs, moniters, etc. make when you turn them on.
