This authoritative, leading-edge resource offers a comprehensive overview of sample rate conversion (SRC) and its applications in software configurable radios. The book helps professionals understand the limits of feasible systems for SRC, as well as the limits of interpolation. The book includes sound advice on selecting the appropriate types of SRC for specific applications, and assistance in handling the trade-off between hardware complexity and the clock rate of a system. From an introduction to software radio and a refresher on the fundamentals of sampling and SRC, to discussions on block signal processing and well-known and novel structures for SRC, the book provides practical guidance that enables professionals to quickly find solutions for their challenging projects in the field.
This first-of-its-kind reference concludes with a list of questions that - when answered - helps to design a system for SRC. More than 890 equations and 90 illustrations support key topics throughout the book.
