# Sampling a Digital Signal

Requires a Wolfram Notebook System

Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.

Sampling data is the first step in the signal processing of wave forms coming from radar, submarine detection, earthquakes, seismic oil exploration, etc. Up-sampling and down-sampling are the basic operations in multirate discrete-time systems.

## Snapshots

## Details

The up-sampled sequence is developed according to the input sequence :

The sampling rate of is times larger than that of the original sequence .

The down-sampled sequence is developed according to the input sequence :

Here the sampling rate of is that of the original sequence .
