I read in one of the literature about a CIC filter with decimation of 3.5. As far as I know CIC decimates by integer only. Is there a way to build a CIC with decimation of 3.5 ? Tom

Reference?
The only way I can think of is for there to be an interpolator included
within the CIC, e.g. decimate by 7 then interpolate by 2.

You keept twice the information if you interpolate first.

Hello Jerry, Does it matter which one comes first (interpolate or decimate) other than decimation is prefered first to run the logic at lower clock speed (f/7 and 3.5f rather than 2f and 3.5f if we interpolate first)? >markt wrote: >>> I read in one of the literature about a CIC filter with decimation of 3.5. >> >>> As far as I know CIC decimates by integer only. >>> Is there a way to build a CIC with decimation of 3.5 ? >>> >>> Tom >> >> Reference? >> >> The only way I can think of is for there to be an interpolator included >> within the CIC, e.g. decimate by 7 then interpolate by 2. > >You keept twice the information if you interpolate first. > >Jerry >-- >Engineering is the art of making what you want from things you can get. >??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? >

If you interpolate first, the maximum allowed frequency in the result is
(fs is the original sample rate) fs/3.5. If you do it last, the
maximum frequency can be only fs/7. Once aliasing occurs, id won't be
undone by interpolating.

Jerry, I got it.

Do you even have to actually interpolate?
What if you just double the clock?
And either repeate the samples or zero fill (meaning you only have to
do the math every other clock)
Does this come out to the same as alternating between two adjacent
integer ratios?
(Assuming for a minute that you are putting low-rate output samples
into a fifo - if you actually want to send them immediately to a DAC
or something where output interval matters, you'll need a sample clock
that doesn't jitter)
