Modeling and Synthesizing Large Ratio Rate Adapters

Modeling and Synthesizing Large Ratio Rate Adapters

Sometimes engineers are called upon to design sample rate adapters with ratios that do not fit convenient integer rates of decimation or interpolation.

Decimating or interpolating by ratios of less than two can lead to large ratios of required interpolation and decimation that would be inefficient if implemented as cascaded filters.This document examines an algorithmic solution for minimal hardware and efficient implementation of such large ratio rate adapters.
