Abstract

Though compressive sensing hinges on extracting linear measurements from the signals to acquire, actual implementations introduce nonlinearities whose effect can be far from negligible. We here address the problem of saturation in the circuit blocks needed by a Random Modulation Pre-Integration architecture. To allow a fair a comparison with previous analysis, we rely on a model capturing the essentials of saturations in actual implementations while being able to reproduce more abstract settings considered in the literature. Based on this, we analyze some methods already proposed to cope with simplified saturation mechanisms, briefly discussing their underlying principles. Finally, we introduce a novel approach that takes into account the more realistic model and, at the cost of an almost negligible hardware overhead, is extremely effective in countering saturation effects.
