Convolution is a formal mathematical operation, just as multiplication, addition, and integration. Addition takes two numbers and produces a third number, while convolution takes two signals and produces a third signal. Convolution is used in the mathematics of many fields, such as probability and statistics. In linear systems, convolution is used to describe the relationship between three signals of interest: the input signal, the impulse response, and the output signal.

If the input and impulse response of a system are x[n] and h[n] respectively, the convolution is given by the expression,

x[n] * h[n] = ε x[k] h[n-k]

Where k ranges between -∞ and ∞


x(n) is a M- point sequence
h(n) is a N – point sequence
then, y(n) is a (M+N-1) – point sequence.

In this equation, x(k), h(n-k) and y(n) represent the input to and output from the system at time n. Here we could see that one of the inputs is shifted in time by a value every time it is multiplied with the other input signal. Linear Convolution is quite often used as a method of implementing filters of various types.

#define xn 4

#define hn 4

void main()


        int *x,*h,*y,i,n,k;


        x = (int *)0x003F9100;

        h = (int *)0x003F9200;

        y = (int *)0x003F9300;












                        y[n] = (y[n]) + ((x[k])*(h[n-k]));


        while (1);





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