I know that bits precision required for an IIR filter is proportional to the number of IRR stages. I learnt this aftermaking a 9 stage IIR using doubles years ago, only the 2nd and third order ones worked correctly. Anything more went to the rails (generally), due to overflows. I also used binary scaling conventions when I worked in simulation in assembler many years ago. I am very i...

There have been several papers comparing filter topologies and filter noise performance. There have also been several papers comparing fixed point to floating point processing. Has anyone examined Extended Floating Point (32 bit mantissa) versus 32 bit fixed point? Both options are available with a Sharc.

Hello, I am working on a self-study project and try to implement a DMT transmitter in VHDL. This is the first time I am dealing with fixed-point implementation of a DSP algorithm. One of the blocks is an IFFT which outputs the time domain signal. At the end this signal is passed to an ADC, which has at the most a precision of 16-bit. My question is now whether I should scale my data at t...
