## Interpolation & Decimation

Let Digital Filter transfer function be H (.)
m
then Y ( z ) X ( z ).H (.)
Hence H (.) is of the form H (z ) i.e. its
impulse response exists at the instants mT.
Write

## Interpolation & Decimation

Any products that have powers of z 1 less
m
than m do not contribute to Y ( z ) , as this
is required to be a function of z m .
Therefore we retain the products

## Interpolation & Decimation

A very useful FIR transfer function special
case is for : N odd, h(n) symmetric
with additional constraints on h(n) to be
zero at the points shown in the figure.

## Interpolation & Decimation

For the impulse response shown

## H ( z ) h(0) h(1).z h(2).z h(3).z h(4).z h(5).z

h(1).z h(2).z 3 h(3).z 5 h(4).z 7 h(5).z 9

## The amplitude response is then given

A( ) h(0) h(1).2 cos(T ) h(2).2 cos(3T )
h(3).2 cos(5T )
In general

## Design of Decimator and

Interpolator
Example Develop the specs suitable for the
design of a decimator to reduce the
sampling rate of a signal from 12 kHz to
400 Hz
The desired down-sampling factor is
therefore M = 30 as shown below

16

Professor A G Constantinides

Multistage Design of
Decimator and Interpolator
Specifications for the decimation filter H(z)
are assumed to be as follows:
Fp 180 Hz , Fs 200 Hz ,
p 0.002 , s 0.001

Polyphase Decomposition
The Decomposition
Consider an arbitrary sequence {x[n]} with
a z-transform X(z) given by
n
X ( z )
x
[
n
]
z

We can rewrite X(z) as
M 1 k
M
X ( z ) k 0 z X k ( z )
where

n

X k ( z ) n xk [n] z n x[Mn k ] z

Professor A G Constantinides

Polyphase Decomposition
The subsequences {xk [n]} are called the
polyphase components of the parent
sequence {x[n]}
The functions X k (z ), given by the
z-transforms of {xk [n]}, are called the
polyphase components of X(z)

19

Professor A G Constantinides

Polyphase Decomposition
The relation between the subsequences {xk [n]}
and the original sequence {x[n]} are given
by
xk [n] x[Mn k ], 0 k M 1
In matrix form we can write

Polyphase Decomposition
A multirate structural interpretation of the
polyphase decomposition is given below

Professor A G Constantinides

Polyphase Decomposition
The polyphase decomposition of an FIR
transfer function can be carried out by
inspection
For example, consider a length-9 FIR
transfer function:
H ( z)

h[n] z

n 0

Professor A G Constantinides

Polyphase Decomposition
The polyphase decomposition of an IIR
transfer function H(z) = P(z)/D(z) is not that
straight forward
One way to arrive at an M-branch polyphase
decomposition of H(z) is to express it in the
M
P
'
(
z
)
/
D
'
(
z
) by multiplying P(z) and
form
D(z) with an appropriately chosen
polynomial and then apply an M-branch
polyphase decomposition to P '( z )
24

Professor A G Constantinides

Polyphase Decomposition
1 2 z 1
H ( z)

Example - Consider

## To obtain a 2-band polyphase decomposition we

rewrite H(z) as

H ( z)

(1 2 z 1 )(13 z 1 )
(13 z 1 )(13 z 1 )

15 z 1 6 z 2

19 z 2

Professor A G Constantinides

Polyphase Decomposition
The above approach increases the overall
order and complexity of H(z)
However, when used in certain multirate
structures, the approach may result in a
more computationally efficient structure
An alternative more attractive approach is
discussed in the following example
26

Professor A G Constantinides

Polyphase Decomposition
Example - Consider the transfer function of
a 5-th order Butterworth lowpass filter with
a 3-dB cutoff frequency at 0.5:
H ( z)

27

0.0527864 (1 z 1 )5

1 0.633436854 z 2 0.0557281 z 4

## It is easy to show that H(z) can be expressed

as
2
2
1 0.52786 z
1 0.105573 z
H ( z )
z

2
2
2 1 0.105573 z
1 0.52786 z
Professor A G Constantinides

Polyphase Decomposition
Therefore H(z) can be expressed as
2
1
2
H ( z ) E0 ( z ) z E1( z )
where

28

E0 ( z )

1
1 0.105573 z
2 1 0.105573 z 1

E1( z )

1
1 0.52786 z
2 1 0.52786 z 1

Professor A G Constantinides

Polyphase Decomposition
In the above polyphase decomposition,
branch transfer functions Ei (z ) are stable
allpass functions (proposed by
Constantinides)
Moreover, the decomposition has not
increased the order of the overall transfer
function H(z)
29

## FIR Filter Structures Based on

Polyphase Decomposition
We shall demonstrate later that a parallel
realization of an FIR transfer function H(z)
based on the polyphase decomposition can
often result in computationally efficient
multirate structures
Consider the M-branch Type I polyphase
decomposition of H(z):
