Simulation und Untersuchung von Sampling Jitter

Master Project
Announcement date

Research Areas


Digital audio signals are obtained by Sampling, ie taking a snapshot of an analogue signal at equidistant time instants, followed by Quantization, ie converting the snapshot to a number. If the time instants don’t match their desired value, it is called Sampling Jitter. If resulting effects are perceptible, they affect the quality of the audio signal.

This project, part of the sound engineering studies, contains various explanations of Sampling Jitter; a MATLAB Tool for the simulation of Sampling Jitter and a listening test, which examines the audibility of simulated Sampling Jitter.

As in 2011 the Acoustics and Audio Group moved from the Institute of Broadband Communications (IBK) to the Signal Processing and Speech Communications Laboratory (SPSC), the puplishing location of this thesis also was transfered from the IBK to the SPSC-website.
