Polyphase Resampling with a Rational Factor

Module by: Phil Schniter. E-mail the author

Summary: Introduction to the concept of Polyphase Resampling.

Polyphase Resampling with a Rational Factor

Recall that resampling by rational rate LM LM can be accomplished through the following three-stage process(see Figure 1).

Figure 1
Figure 1 (m10443fig1.png)

If we implemented the upsampler/LPF pair with a polyphase filterbank, we would still waste computations due to eventual downsampling by M M. Alternatively, if we implemented the LPF/downsampler pair with a polyphase filterbank, we would waste computations by feeding it the (mostly-zeros) upsampler output. Thus, we need to examine this problem in more detail.

Assume for the moment that we implemented the upsampler/LPF pair with a polyphase filterbank, giving the architecture in Figure 2.

Figure 2
Figure 2 (m10443fig2.png)

Keeping the "parallel-to-serial" interpretation of the upsampler/delay ladder in mind, the input sequence to the decimator ql ql has the form as in Figure 3

Figure 3
Figure 3 (m10443fig2andahalf.png)

leading to the observation that ql= v l L lL q l v l L l L

ym=qmM= v mM L mML=k h mM L kxmMLk y m q m M v m M L m M L k k h m M L k x m M L k
(1)

Thus, to calculate the resampled output at output index mm, we should calculate only the output of branch number mML m M L at input index mMLm ML. No other branch outputs are calculated, so that no computations are wasted. The resulting structure is depicted in Figure 4.

Figure 4:
Figure 4 (m10443fig3.png)

An equally-efficient structure could be obtained if we implemented the LPF/downsampler using the MM-branch polyphase decimator which was fed with the proper sequence of input samples. However, this structure is not as elegant: rather than computing the output of one particular polyphase branch per output sample, we would need to add all branch outputs, but where each branch output was calculated using a particular subset of polyphase taps.

A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.
