Hi, all,

I used tx_waveforms in uhd to transmit a 0.5M sine wave on 5.5GHz.

As we all know,

Frequency(A) * Frequenc(B) = Frequency(A-B) + Frequency(A+B)

I got two peaks at

5.4995GHz and 5.5005GHz

when the tx_rate is 1M samples per second.

I thought it is right, sampling frequency is twice the sine frequency.

However, when the tx_rate is 2MSps, I got one peak at 5.5005GHz.

Then I am confused. Where does the lower frequency part go?

Or the first one is actually an aliasing because we need some degree of

oversampling in practice.

Also I’d like to know where do we remove the lower frequency part

(freq(A-B)) in uhd.

Thanks a lot for explaining the phenomena.
