Ritchie James Kenneth Alexande, Abbott David, Anderson Adrian, Parris Clifford: Method and apparatus for signal processing.. Texas Instruments, November 11, 1992: EP0512748-A2 (105 worldwide citation)

A digital demodulator for a NICAM 728 system signal has sampling and digitizing means converting the signal into a succession of digital samples. The digital samples pass through an anti-aliasing digital comb filter to a selector (decimator) that selects one sample in three and feeds it to a second ...
