In signal processing, cross-correlation is a measure of similarity of two waveforms as a function of a time-lag applied to one of them. This is also known as a sliding dot product or sliding inner-product. It is commonly used for searching a long-duration signal for a shorter, known feature. It also has applications in pattern recognition, single particle analysis, electron tomographic averaging, cryptanalysis, and neurophysiology.

For continuous functions, f and g, the cross-correlation is defined as':


Where f * denotes the complex conjugate of f.

Similarly, for discrete functions, the cross-correlation is defined as:


The cross-correlation is similar in nature to the convolution of two functions.

In an auto correlation, which is the cross-correlation of a signal with itself, there will always be a peak at a lag of zero unless the signal is a trivial zero signal.

#include "DSP281x_Device.h"


#define xn 4

#define hn 4

void main()


        int *xval,*hval,*outval,j;

        int n,k,i,t[100]={0};


        xval = (int *)0x003F9100; /* input 1 */

        hval = (int *)0x003F9200; /* input 2 */

        outval = (int *)0x003F9300; /* output */




                outval[i] = 0;







                t[j] = hval[i];





                        outval[n] = (outval[n])+((xval[k])*(t[n-k]));










Thus, the Cross Correlation of two given discrete sequence has performed and the result is stored at memory location (0x3F9300).
