The plural-phase clocking signal used in a subsampling time-domain digital filter is partially blanked to generate a sparse clocking signal for a clocked data latch that decimates the output signal from the digital filter, to supply it at a subsampling rate as compared to the sampling rate of input ...

J William Whikehart: Digital quadrature radio receiver with two-step processing. Ford Motor Company, Mark Mollon, Roger L May, June 22, 1993: US05222144 (132 worldwide citation)

A digital signal processing (DSP) radio receiver employs a conventional analog RF tuner to produce an analog intermediate frequency. The receiver performs DSP functions of digitally sampling the analog intermediate frequency at a sampling rate f.sub.s, concurrently mixing, filtering, and sample-rate ...

A sampling frequency converter for converting a first signal sampled at a first sampling frequency f1 into a second signal sampled at a second sampling frequency f2 comprising an interpolation device supplied with the first signal, for inserting L-1 zeros (L is an integer) for every sampling time, a ...

William J Owen, Robert A Booker: Optimum second order digital filter. Martin Marietta Corporation, Sughrue Mion Zinn Macpeak & Seas, October 26, 1982: US04356558 (131 worldwide citation)

A second order digital filter utilizing six processor operations, two add instructions, two shift instructions and two store instructions. No multipliers are required. The filter is used as a digital filter in a servo loop having a Z transform of, G(Z)=4 (1-Z.sup.-1)+Z.sup.-2.

Joseph H Rothweiler: System for digital multiband filtering. RCA Corporation, Clement A Berard Jr, Henry I Schanzer, William H Meise, September 1, 1987: US04691292 (126 worldwide citation)

A digital filter system in which the frequency spectrum of an input signal is divided into M consecutive subbands. Each subband is generated by multiplying the impulse reponse of a low pass filter by a sinusoid (sine or cosine) whose frequency is equal to the center frequency of its respective subba ...
