Demystifying the Hilbert Transform
Dan Boschen - Watch Now - Duration: 02:29:24
In this workshop, Dan will introduce the Hilbert Transform and the Analytic Signal, and the various uses for them. Dan will review the fundamental points in understanding the Hilbert Transform intuitively and then he will show practical implementations and applications both in the analog and digital signal processing domains. Key limitations and gotchas will be presented that every designer should be aware of. Dan will demonstrate creative implementations using Python, and provide similar scripts compatible with MATLAB. Attendees will gain a more intuitive insight of key signal processing concepts using complex signals that are applicable to a wide range of applications.
Thank you for your interest in the Demystifying the Hilbert Transform workshop! Below are the installation instructions for Python in case you want to follow along hands-on with the examples given or run the examples later.
Option 1: Easy path to Python: Install the Anaconda Individual Edition which will have all the tools we will be using: https://www.anaconda.
Option 2: Alternative manual path to Python: As a minimum install we will be using Python 3, Numpy, Matplotlib, and Scipy:
Install python: https://www.python.
From command window type:
pip install ipython
pip install numpy
pip install matplotlib
pip install scipy
(if you encounter any difficulty with installing the packages, see this page: https://packaging.
Note: We will not be debugging any installation issues in the Workshop, and a Python installation is not necessary to follow along with the workshop presentation. Having a Python installation running with the above libraries is convenient if you want to follow along hands-on, as Dan will be demonstrating the material using Python. A Jupyter Notebook of the material presented will also be distributed here after the workshop for future reference, along with similar scripts that work in Matlab or Octave. If you would like further basics on running the Notebook, please see this link:
11:56:16 From Leonard : counting to 13 11:57:27 From Brewster LaMacchia : AM radio detector? 12:07:55 From Michael Kirkhart : "The Analytic Impulse" link: http://andrewduncan.net/air/ 12:24:33 From Marek Klemes : Note that Hilbert filter does not pass DC, so your signal should not contain DC. What is the math analogy to the impulse response at t=0? 12:26:15 From Dan Boschen : 4 12:26:20 From Marek Klemes : What is the value of Hilbert impulse response at t=0? 12:34:41 From mnapier : Application I seen for Hilbert is a tracking PLL. You have a reference frequency that you want to lock some other rate or tone generator to. Take the Hilbert for analytic signal. ATAN2 to get phase. The phase is sampled at a fixed rate (means only compute at fixed rate) and compare to phase accumulator. Run PLL error loop. 12:35:03 From mnapier : Mark 12:40:57 From Michael Kirkhart : Decibel dust 12:41:14 From mnapier : Below the ADC noise. 12:41:41 From Tim : Your x-axis is labelled in samples/cycle, but it looks more like radians? 12:47:25 From Stephane to Dan Boschen(Direct Message) : Feel free to go overtime if you need to 12:48:00 From Tim : Thanks! 13:12:45 From JohnP : Discrete prolate spheroidal (Slepian) sequences ? 13:13:11 From Michael Kirkhart : Discrete Prolate Spheroidal Sequences 13:13:46 From Michael Kirkhart : A link comparing DPSS and Kaiser: https://www.dsprelated.com/freebooks/sasp/Kaiser_Window.html 13:19:20 From mnapier : Thanks for a great presentation. 13:19:34 From Yair Mazal : thanks a lot 13:20:27 From Al Anway : best presentation I've ever seen! 13:20:37 From mnapier : In SDR we call it a rotator. 13:21:50 From mnapier : Because it take the spectrum and rotates it around the unit circle. 13:21:56 From Brewster LaMacchia : This was great. In the past I somewhat blindly used the Hilbert but never really looked under the hood - was saving that for a rainy day... It is raining here (Boston area) today. 13:22:09 From Michael Kirkhart : This was an excellent presentation! This helped clear up some confusion I had on analytic signals and why they are important, and why the Hilbert transform is useful (needed to create analytic signals from real signals). 13:25:18 From JohnP : I use hybrid couplers/combiners all the time. Never realized they realized Davey Hilbert's function. 13:25:52 From Michael Kirkhart : Can you make the presentation available? 13:26:25 From Stephane : This presentation is being recorded and will be uploaded later today. 13:27:13 From Michael Kirkhart : Cool! I will need to watch it at least one more time to gain a better understanding (much like Professor harris's lectures). 13:27:46 From Al Anway : your doppler shift reference reminds me of a cool way to do audio phlanging. 13:29:20 From mnapier : Audio application is a strobe tuner. Uses phase to track small differences in frequency. 13:29:48 From Brewster LaMacchia : as an audio person, it's pretty rare to have complex numbers in the processing other than a FFT->process->IFTT path 13:30:10 From Radu Pralea : what signal processing book was that (keeping the whole presentation real)? 13:32:51 From Michał Knioła : Thank you!
