A Generalized Sampling Method for Finite-Rate-of-Innovation-Signal Reconstruction

C.S. Seelamantula, M. Unser

IEEE Signal Processing Letters, vol. 15, pp. 813-816, 2008.

The problem of sampling signals that are not admissible within the classical Shannon framework has received much attention in the recent past. Typically, these signals have a parametric representation with a finite number of degrees of freedom per time unit. It was shown that, by choosing suitable sampling kernels, the parameters can be computed by employing high-resolution spectral estimation techniques. In this letter, we propose a simple acquisition and reconstruction method within the framework of multichannel sampling. In the proposed approach, an infinite stream of nonuniformly-spaced Dirac impulses can be sampled and accurately reconstructed provided that there is at most one Dirac impulse per sampling period. The reconstruction algorithm has a low computational complexity, and the parameters are computed on the fly. The processing delay is minimal—just the sampling period. We propose sampling circuits using inexpensive passive devices such as resistors and capacitors. We also show how the approach can be extended to sample piecewise-constant signals with a minimal change in the system configuration. We provide some simulation results to confirm the theoretical findings.
