This is a follow-on from the DSP course. Examine the advanced and complex aspects of filter structures and filter applications.

Course Outline

A new architecture, cascade analysis and synthesis filter banks offers green, minimum energy implementation of filter functions. Develop an understanding of how these structures can be modified and applied to various processing tasks. The course addresses both filter structures and filter applications. A brief sample of some of the topics explored during this course are:

  • Practical Design of Finite Impulse Response Filters
  • Spectral and time domain characteristics
  • Transition bandwidth, side-lobe levels and spectral envelope
  • IRemez Algorithm revisited
  • Square-Root Nyquist filter
  • Multirate FIR Filters
  • Rational ratio and arbitrary ratio interpolators (up and down-resampling)
  • Polyphase Partitions
  • Cascade Integrator-Comb Filters
  • Hogenauer filter structures
