Title: "Implementation Aspects of the Random Demodulator for Compressive Sensing"

Speaker: Pawel Jerzy Pankiewicz (AAU, Aalborg, Denmark)

Location: "Shannon" Seminar Room (a105) Place du Levant 3, Maxwell Building, 1st floor

Date / Time (duration): April 26, 11h15 (~ 45')


The compressive sensing paradigm has gained significant attention from the applied sciences and engineering in recent years. The random demodulator is one of the compressive sensing architectures providing efficient sub-Nyquist sampling of sparse band-limited signals using simple off-the-shelf components.

In order to accurately reconstruct the sub-sampled signal the theory requires a measurement matrix that accurately represents a model of the sampling front-end. When designing an electronic circuit one needs to realize that specific components might not perform exactly as expected.

In this talk we address some of the practical aspects of the compressive sensing analog-to-digital architectures with emphasis on the random demodulator. We discuss how the filter components tolerances and finite resolution of the sampling device decreases signal reconstruction quality and what can be done to remedy this.
