Abstract

This thesis presents the development of a software package for the purpose of analyzing digital networks. The software package consists of two graphic user interfaces, one for the signal flow graph schematic drawing, and one for the analysis of digital network. Both are written in the WATFOR-77 programming language and by using the VGAWAT graphics library. The first graphic user interface software is to draw the signal flow graph of a 1-D, 2-D, or 3-D digital network using adders, delays, and multipliers. It can extract the graphical representation of a digital network with error checking capability into a netlist for analysis purpose. The netlist is formatted in the simplified matrix compute the frequency response, group delay and slope of magnitude response, first-order coefficient sensitivity, noise, and impulse response of a 1-D, 2-D, or 3-D digital network. Results are plotted in 2-D graphs for 1-D digital networks, and in 3-D graphs for 2-D and 3-D digital networks. Examples of 1-D, 2-D and 3-D digital network are given in this thesis.Dept. of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
