## Question about Z transform of decimation 0

Jeff - 2004-09-06 17:48:00
Hi, I am learning about digital decimation. The problem is like this: Z-transform of input sequence and filter aree X(z), H(z) respectively. After the filter H(z), there is a 2 decimation. From one book talking about decimation, it says the Z-transform of output sequence after decimation is: ...

## decimation filter problems 0

fyzkydmn - 2011-03-30 12:54:00
Hi, I have 2 questions about decimation filter for a SD ADC. Firstly, how is the relationship between SNR and stopband attenuation for decimation filter. For example if I have 14 bits output of the decimation filter, SNR=(6.02*N+1.76)=86 db, so will I choose stopband attenuation > 86 db for decim...

Hi I need to take a standard 8bit ADC which samples at 40Msps increase the resolution by about 4 or 5 bits.

I have not heard of mixed radix. but split radix is when you use both radix2 and radix4 to compute N point FFT. your output or input ordering/reordering will depend on if you are implementing decimation in time or decimation in freq algo. if you are doing decimation in time then you have to re...

Hi Guys, Wow. Thanks for all the replies. You've given me a lot to think about. One of the things that prompted my question is the fact that if we need to decimate by a large factor D, we can decimate in two stages (decimate by D1, followed by decimation by D2) to reduce the overa...

## Combining multiple CIC decimation filters in series +1

SRB - 2012-10-31 09:45:00
Hi All I'm designing a CIC filter to be used at high decimation rates (e.g. 4000) and am considering whether it could be beneficial to use more than CIC filter in series. For example, rather than having one CIC that decimates by 4000 I could use four CICs that decimate by 10, 10, 10 and 4x respecti...

Assume that i am doing decimation by 64, first by filtering and then throwing. This is implemented the same way in RTL and C. But there might be a data shift in input. Maybe one more or one less. This would essentially be same as selecting a different phase of the filter. Assuming that the inp...

Dear all, I have a question linked to the decimation of a signal. Let's have a signal x(n), and X(z) its Z-transform. If we decimate this signal, i.e. xe(n) = x(2n), we obtain the following Z-transform : Xe(z) = 1/2 [X(z^1/2) + X(-z^1/2)] My question is : is there a way to obtain a signal ...

## using IIR or FIR to implement the lowpass filter for downsampling? 0

Nasser M. Abbasi - 2012-03-05 05:34:00
For downsampling (decimation) one normally uses low pass filter before downsampling (anti-aliasing filter). I have thought that FIR is the best choice here for the low pass filter implementation for this case. But I was reading this page: http://www.dspguru.com/dsp/faqs/multirate/decimatio...
