Linear Phase VDF Design with Unabridged Bandwidth Control over the Nyquist Band

Abstract : This brief presents a low complexity linear phase variable digital filter (VDF) design with tunable lowpass (LP), highpass (HP), bandpass (BP) and bandstop (BS) responses anywhere over entire Nyquist band. The spectral parameter approximation based VDFs (SPA-VDFs) designed using Farrow structure have advantages of linear phase, lower group delay and fewer variable multipliers. However, the total gate count and dynamic range of filter coefficient values of SPA-VDFs increase significantly with the tunable range of cut-off frequency which limits their usefulness in emerging signal processing and wireless communication applications. Also, existing VDFs need to update either filter coefficients or need parallel filter structures to obtain variable LP, HP, BP and BS responses. In this paper, a new VDF design is proposed by deftly integrating SPA-VDF with the modified coefficient decimation method (MCDM) and it shall be referred to as SPA-MCDM-VDF. The SPA-MCDM-VDF provides LP, HP, BP and BS responses with unabridged center frequency and bandwidth control over the entire Nyquist band without the need for hardware re-implementation or coefficient update. The complexity comparisons show that the SPA-MCDM-VDF offers substantial savings in gate count, group delay and number of variable multiplications over other linear phase VDFs.
