Abstract
Description
 1. Field
 The present invention relates to digital resampling. More particularly, embodiments of the invention involve a method and apparatus for concurrently resampling multiple digital signal streams representing multiple signal rates through a single filter path.
 2. Description of Related Art
 Digital resampling involves converting a first series of values representing a digital signal sampled at a first rate to a second series of values representing the same digital signal sampled at a second rate. Resampling to a lower sample rate is referred to as down sampling or decimation. Decimation may be performed by filtering the original signal using a digital filter implemented in either software or hardware. Implementing such filters requires a relatively large amount of circuit resources. Implementing a digital filter in software, for example, requires a computer processor, and implementing a digital filter in hardware requires a series of arithmetic components, such as adders and multipliers.
 Multiple channel resampling involves concurrently resampling more than one digital signal, and may require use of two or more different filters. Multiple rate resampling has been addressed using, for example, multiple filter paths and a switch for directing each of various signals to a particular filter path. This approach requires an additional set of resources (filter path) for each resampling filter. For example, each filter path may involve pipelining signal samples through a series of multipliers and adders, requiring a separate set of multipliers and adders for each signal stream to be processed. For relatively large filters (such as finite impulse response filters of eight weights or more), such an approach can require the use of a large number of resources, particularly if multiple resampling filters are used.
 Accordingly, there is a need for an improved method and apparatus for signal resampling that does not suffer from the limitations of the prior art.
 The present invention provide an improved system and method for resampling digital signals that does not suffer from the limitations of the prior art.
 Particularly, embodiments of the invention provide a method of resampling a digital signal involving serially receiving a plurality of samples of the digital signal, applying a plurality of filter coefficients to a first subset of the plurality of samples to generate a first plurality of intermediate results, and applying the plurality of filter coefficients to a second subset of the plurality of samples to generate a second plurality of intermediate results. The second subset includes at least one sample from the first subset and at least one sample not present in the first subset.
 The first plurality of intermediate results are accumulated to generate a first resampled value, wherein the first plurality of intermediate results is accumulated by sequentially combining each intermediate result with a first accumulation value. The second plurality of intermediate results is accumulated to generate a second resampled value, wherein the second plurality of intermediate results is accumulated by sequentially combining each intermediate result with a second accumulation value.

The embodiments are intended to describe certain aspects of the invention in sufficient detail to enable those skilled in the art to practice the technology. Other embodiments can be utilized and changes can be made without departing from the scope of the invention. The following detailed description is, therefore, not to be taken in a limiting sense. The scope of the present invention is defined only by the appended claims, along with the full scope of equivalents to which such claims are entitled.
 A system embodying principles of the present technology is illustrated in
FIG. 1 and designated generally by the reference numeral 10. The system 10 includes a data input 12, a data output 14, and a circuit 16 generally including a controller 18 and a memory 20. The data input 12 and the data output 14 are illustrated as generalized inputs and outputs and may include various types and sizes of inputs and outputs, respectively. The circuit 16 may be fixed, such as an application specific integrated circuit, a digital signal processing (DSP) chip or a dedicated finite impulse response (FIR) filter chip; or may be programmable, such as a field programmable gate array (FPGA) or a complex programmable logic device (CPLD).  The system 10 is operable to decimate (down sample) an input signal by a predetermined decimation factor by filtering the input signal applying, for example, a finite impulse response (FIR) filter represented by equation (1), as follows:

$\begin{array}{cc}Y\ue8a0\left(n\right)=\sum _{m=0}^{M1}\ue89e{C}_{m}\times {X}_{\left(D\times nm+1\right)},& \left(1\right)\end{array}$  where M is the number of filter coefficients (taps), D is the decimation factor, C_{m }is a filter coefficient, and the value M/D may be an integer. Using equation (1), a new output value Y is generated for every D input values of X The output Y(n) is invalid if D×n is less than M.
 An exemplary application of equation (1), wherein the decimation factor is two (i.e., D=2), is illustrated in Table 1. Each row of Table 1 corresponds to a successive time when a new output Y is generated. Each input value X is multiplied by a corresponding coefficient C at the top of the column to form an intermediate value, and all intermediate values in each row are added to form the corresponding output Y depicted at the far right side of the row. Because the decimation factor D is two in the exemplary application illustrated in Table 1, a new output value Y is generated for each pair of new input values X received. If the decimation factor D is three, a new output value Y is generated upon receipt of three new input values X, if the decimation factor D is four, a new output value Y is generated upon receipt of four new input values, and so forth. Because equation (1) represents a FIR filter, each output Y is generated based solely on current and past input values X Furthermore, equation (1) may be solved in an iterative fashion, wherein only a most recent X value and one or more running, cumulative Y values need to be retained at any given time.

FIG. 2 . The input 12 and a first memory element 24 are connected to a multiplier 26. An output of the multiplier 26 and the output of a second memory element 28 are connected to an adder 30. The output of the second memory element 28 is also connected to the data output 14. The circuit 22 may further include control logic (not shown) for enabling the various elements of the circuit 22 to filter an input signal according to, for example, equation (1).  It will be appreciated that
FIG. 2 illustrates various exemplary functional blocks and that the functions depicted in the circuit 22 may be implemented using any of various different electrical and/or electronic circuits. By way of example, the first memory element 24 may be a readonly memory (ROM) module containing a plurality of filter coefficients stored according to a predetermined coefficient order, and the second memory element 28 may be a random access memory (RAM) module with a depth of M/D. Alternatively, the first memory element 24 and the second memory element 28 may be part of a single block of RAM elements.  A flow diagram illustrating exemplary steps performed by the circuit 22 is shown in
FIG. 3 . Before the steps illustrated inFIG. 3 are executed, the system 10 is initialized, wherein a decimation offset variable dec_offset is initialized to a value D−1 and an output number variable output_num is initialized to zero. Furthermore, a number M of predetermined filter coefficients are placed in the first memory element 24.  In operation, a new X value (X(p)) is first received at the input 12, as depicted in block 32. The variable coef_offset is set equal to the variable dec_offset and a variable store_indx is set equal to the variable output_num, as depicted in block 34. A next Y value is updated by adding the current Y value to the product of the current input sample X(p) and a coefficient corresponding to the variable coef_offset, as depicted in block 36. The variable coef_offset is incremented by an amount equal to D, as depicted in block 38, because not every coefficient value stored in the first memory element 24 is used, as can be seen in Table 1. Although not illustrated in
FIG. 3 , if the variable coef_offset is equal to a maximum, such as twelve, fourteen, sixteen, and so forth, the variable coef_offset is set to zero in block 38.  The variable stor_indx is tested to determine whether it is equal to the variable output_num−1, as depicted in block 40. If the variable stor_indx is not equal to output_num−1, not all Y values have been updated in the second memory module 28. The variable stor_indx is then incremented by one, as depicted in block 42, to indicate the next Y value to be updated in the second memory element 28. The variable stor_indx is then tested to determine whether it is equal to M/D, as depicted in block 44. If the variable store_indx is not equal to M/D, the process flow returns to block 36. If the variable store_indx is equal to output_num−1, it is set equal to zero, as depicted in block 46, and the process flow returns to block 36.
 If the variable stor_indx is equal to output_num−1, all eligible Y values have been updated to reflect the new X value. If the second memory module 28 includes exactly M/D storage locations, the second memory module 28 will also be full of updated Y values when stor_indx is equal to output_num−1. The variable dec_offset is tested to determine whether it is equal to zero, as depicted in block 48. If not, dec_offset is decremented by one, as depicted in block 50, the variable output_valid is set equal to False, as depicted in block 52, and the system waits for the next X value. If dec_offset is found to be equal to zero in block 48, one of the Y values in the second memory element 28 is communicated to an output decimation_output, such as output 14, as depicted in block 54. The memory location storing the Y value communicated to the decimation_output is set to zero, as depicted in block 56, in preparation for the next accumulation steps. The variable output_valid is set to true, as depicted in block 58.
 The particular Y value that is communicated to the output 14 and reset to zero is determined by the variable output_num, which is incremented (or reset to zero to wrap around to a first storage location of the second memory module 28 if an end of the memory module 28 is reached) each time a Y value is communicated to the output 14. Therefore, after a Y value is communicated to decimation_output, output_num is tested to determine whether it is equal to M/D−1, as depicted in block 60. If output_num is equal to M/D−1, it is reset to zero, as depicted in block 62. If output_num is not equal to M/D−1, it is incremented, as depicted in block 64. The variable dec_offset is set equal to D−1, as depicted in block 66, and the system waits for the next X value. The process represented in
FIG. 3 uses only a most recent X value to update a plurality of running Y values and does not store previous X values.  The most recent X value may be discarded after it is multiplied by each of the relevant coefficients. As used herein, “discarding” a value means not using or actively retaining the value, and does not mean actively expunging the value from the system 10. It will be appreciated that the data bits representing a discarded value may persist in one or more elements of the circuit 22 a next value is processed.
 In a particular embodiment, the second memory module 28 can hold exactly M/D Y values, thus minimizing the amount of resources necessary to implement the FIR filter characterized by equation (1), above. Where D=2 and there are twelve coefficients (C values), for example, MD=6, minimizing the size of the second memory module 28.
 The circuit 22 is generally capable of filtering a single signal through a single data path. A second exemplary circuit 62 of the system 10 operable to resample a signal is depicted in
FIG. 4 . The circuit 62 ofFIG. 4 is similar to the circuit 22 depicted inFIG. 2 , except that the circuit 62 can concurrently process multiple streams of input signal data with a single filter path, as explained below.  The circuit 68 includes a data input 72 for receiving X values, and a channel select input 70 for identifying a present channel or signal. Both inputs 70,72 may correspond to input 12, described above. If two signals are represented by the input signals X, two sets of filter coefficients may be stored in each of two memory modules 74,76, wherein a first set of filter coefficients is stored in a first memory module 74 and a second set of filter coefficients is stored in a second memory module 76. The channel select input 70 actuates a multiplexer 78 to connect one of the two memory modules 74,76 to a multiplier 80. The output of the multiplier 80 is connected to an adder 82, which receives an output of a second multiplexer 84 which selects an output of third and fourth memory modules 86,88 according to the channel select input 70. Each of the third and fourth memory modules 86,88 is connected to one of two outputs 90,92. Because two sets of filter coefficients may be available in the circuit 68, a first filter may be applied to a first signal and a second filter may be applied to a second signal.
 The process illustrated in
FIG. 3 may be implemented on each of two signals or input streams inFIG. 4 , wherein a first signal is processed using the first memory element 74 and the third memory element 86, and a second signal is processed using the second memory element 76 and the fourth memory element 88. By way of example, the two signals may be time division multiplexed on the input 72, wherein a signal on the channel select input 70 enables the circuit 68 to concurrently process the two signals by alternatingly processing samples from one signal and then the other signal.  Using either of the circuits 22,68, processing may be performed in multiple stages to further reduce the amount of hardware resources required to perform the resampling. A first stage of resampling may be performed by the circuit 22, for example, wherein the results of the first stage of resampling are stored in memory and communicated back to the circuit 22 for a second stage of resampling. Alternatively, two instances of either circuit 22,68 may be connected in series.
 Table 2 illustrates an exemplary dualstage implementation of the present technology. Where the decimation factor D is eight, for example, a first stage is executed with a decimation factor D of four and a second stage is executed with a decimation factor D of two. It should be noted that given the parameters set forth in Table 2, the number of iterations and the minimum size of the memory element holding the Y values remain constant: twentyone in the first stage and fortyeight in the second stage. It will be appreciated that a relatively small number of resources are required even where the decimation factor is relatively high, such as twentyfive or thirtytwo.
