Chapter 7 Over-Sampling and Multi-Rate DSP Systems
Objectives Describe the anti-aliasing problem and its solution with over-sampling. Demonstrate the details of digital anti-aliasing and anti-imaging. Demonstrate the processes of down-sampling (decimation) and up- sampling (interpolation) to change the effective sampling rate of a digital signal. Show that interpolation is accomplished by up-sampling and a gain-adjusted low-pass filter. Demonstrate the process of rational rate conversion by cascaded interpolation and decimation. Derive the relationship between sampling rate and the spectral density of random noise. Demonstrate the de-noising of signals with over-sampling. Describe the process of delta-sigma quantization and derive the transfer functions for a first-order noise-shaping quantizer. Demonstrate the process of delta-sigma quantization and the recovery of a quantized signal by low-pass filtering
The Anti-Aliasing Problem If a signal contains a band-width of interest, W, then the minimum sampling frequency is 2W (Nyquist requirement) However, to prevent aliasing, the signal must be analog pre-filtered to a band-width of f s /2 prior to sampling If the signal contains frequency components or noise beyond W, the analog low-pass filter (anti-aliasing filter) must be impractically sharp if sampling is done at 2W Solution: Multi-rate processing – Over-sample the signal at a rate considerably higher than 2W and band-width limit the signal with a sharp digital low-pass filter –Down-sample the signal digitally to an effective rate 2W after digital filtering –This allows the use of a simple analog anti-aliasing filter
Why Does Over-Sampling Help Anti-Aliasing? 1f s 0f s 2f s Over-sampled WW Nyquist-sampled WW Magnitude Responses of Required Anti- Aliasing Analog Filters
Aliasing Noise Example Suppose a communications speech signal has a bandwidth of interest of 4 kHz. The signal is bandwidth-limited by a 2 nd order Butterworth analog filter (fc = 4 kHz) prior to sampling. Compare the aliasing noise at 3 kHz for: –fs = 8 kHz (Nyquist sampling) –fs = 128 kHz (16x over-sampling)
Aliasing Noise Example % Use M-file ALIASNOISE=alias_effect_mag(filterorder,fc,fs,f1 >> alias_effect_mag(2,4000,8000,3000); figure, >> alias_effect_mag(2,4000,128e3,3000 );

Down-Sampling and Decimation Removal of samples is called down-sampling Down-sampling by a factor N reduces the effective sampling frequency by the same factor. That is, the new sampling frequency is f s /N To prevent aliasing, the down-sampled signal should be band-width limited to f s /2N by low- pass filtering prior to sample removal Low-pass filtering followed by down-sampling is called decimation
Down-Sampling a Sinusoid >> [ysin,tsin]=analog(100,1,30,8000); >> stem(ysin),title('100 Hz Sinusoid Sampled at 8 kHz') >> xlabel('Sample') >> dysin=downsample(ysin,4); >> figure,stem(dysin); >> title('100 Hz Sinusoid Sampled at 8 kHz, Down-Sampled by 4x') >> xlabel('Sample')
Decimation With decimation, low-pass filtering precedes down-sampling to prevent aliasing. Example: Decimating a 100 & 1200 Hz signal by a factor of 4 with the MATLAB decimate command >> x=analog([100,1200],[1,1],1000,8000); >> xd4=downsample(x,4); % Effective sampling frequency is now 2000 Hz >> xdecim4=decimate(x,4); % The LP filter will have a cut-off of 0.8*(8000/8) = 800 Hz and will remove the 1200 Hz component >> subplot(3,1,1),dtft_demof(x,0,1500,2024,8000); >> title('Original Signal') >> subplot(3,1,2),dtft_demof(xd4,0,1500,2024,2000); >> title('Down-Sampled (Aliasing)') >> subplot(3,1,3),dtft_demof(xdecim4,0,1500,2024,2000); >> title('Decimated (No 1200 Hz Aliasing)')
Up-Sampling and Interpolation The process of adding zero-valued samples between existing samples is called up- sampling Up-sampling by a factor N effectively increases the sampling frequency to Nf s Estimating the values between existing samples is called interpolation Interpolation is accomplished by low-pass filtering an up-sampled signal followed by an amplitude correction to restore the signal power.

Spectra of the Down-Sampled and Up-Sampled Signals
Interpolation Process The spectrum of the up-sampled signal gives the clue for the process –Low-pass filter the up-sampled signal to remove all frequency components beyond f s /2N, where f s = effective sampling frequency after up-sampling and N is the up-sampling factor. –Multiply the result by N to restore the correct the power of the up-sampled signal Typical filter order for the low-pass filter is 8N This process is implemented in the MATLAB interp command, using a special symmetric FIR filter to compensate for group delay
Recovery of a Down-Sampled Signal by Interpolation Filtering >> x=analog([100,200],[1,1],1000,2000); %Construct the signal >> xd4=downsample(x,4); >> xu4=upsample(xd4,4); >> n=0:32; % Begin the design of an order 8N filter LP filter >> fs=2000; >> N=4; >> cutoff=fs/(2*N); >> omega=2*pi*cutoff/fs; >> h=(omega/pi)*sinc(omega*(n-16)/pi).*hamming(33)'; % LP filter >> x_recovered=4*filter(h,1,xu4); % LP filter and multiply by N=4 >> subplot(3,1,1);stem(x(1:100)),title('Original Signal') >> subplot(3,1,2);stem(xu4(1:100)),title('Zero Insertion of Down- Sampled Signal') >> subplot(3,1,3);stem(x_recovered(1:100)),title('Recovered (LP Filtered) Signal')
Interpolation Recovery Results Note that the group delay of the LP filter is 16 in this example
Interpolation with interp >> x=analog([100,200],[1,1],1000,2000); %Construct the signal >> xd4=downsample(x,4); >> xu4=upsample(xd4,4); >> x_interp=interp(xd4,4); >> subplot(3,1,1),stem(x(1:100)),title('Original Signal') >> subplot(3,1,2),stem(xd4(1:25)),title('Down-Sampled Signal') >> subplot(3,1,3),stem(x_interp(1:100)),title('Recovered Signal Using "interp"')
Sampling Rate Conversion by Rational Factors The sampling frequency can be changed by rational factors L/M where L is the interpolation factor and M is the decimation factor. Rate changes (to higher or lower rates) is always done with interpolation (L) and decimation (M) in that order to prevent loss of frequency components of interest in the signal. Example: Changing a music signal from the CD rate (44.1 kHz) to the digital tape rate (48 kHz) is accomplished by interpolation by a factor of 160 followed by decimation by a factor of 147
Rate Conversion Example Convert a 100 Hz sinusoidal signal sampled at 1200 Hz to a signal sampled at 1000 Hz L/M=1000/1200 = 5/6 >> x=analog(100,1,40,1200); >> xL=interp(x,5); % The interp command carries out interpolation >> xLM=decimate(xL,6); % decimate carries out decimation >> subplot(2,1,1),stem(x),title(' Signal, fs = 1.2 kHz') >> subplot(2,1,2),stem(xLM),title('Rate Conversion 1.2 kHz to 1 kHz') >> axis([0,50,-1,1])
Rate Conversion Example Results Note in both cases the signal is about 40 ms long.
Over-Sampling and Random Noise Gaussian noise power is uniformly distributed in the frequency domain As a consequence, noise power density is reduced by a factor of 2 (3 dB) for each doubling of the sampling frequency.

De-Noising a Signal by Over-Sampling and Low-Pass Filtering Over-sample a signal at a rate many times higher than the band-width of interest W Over-sampling reduces the noise power in W by 3 dB for each doubling of the sampling frequency Low-pass filter with a cut-off frequency near W. This eliminates the noise power at frequencies beyond W.
Noise Power Uniformly Distributed Noise Power Eliminated by LP Filter
Delta-Sigma (ΔΣ) Quantization The processing speed of a DSP system could be measured by bits/sec in which case the speed is Nf s, where N is the number of quantization bits (ADC) and f s is the sampling frequency. For a given system speed, the maximum f s requires quantization with one bit, which appears impossible because quantization with two levels implies impractically high quantization noise. ΔΣ Quantization can do just that: quantize with 1 bit and still control the quantization noise.

Processing a Δ-Σ Signal The high-rate sampling frequency of the Δ-Σ quantizer is f s. Over N samples, the bit-stream of the Δ-Σ quantizer output is the average signal value. Serial-to-N-bit parallel conversion creates N-bit numbers equal to the average value. The effective sampling frequency is f s /N. The N-bit numbers carry the quantization noise which is eliminated by digital LP filtering. The filtered signal represents the recovered signal. After filtering the signal can be decimated to the Nyquist rate for further processing.

Reduction in Noise due to Over-sampling and Noise Shaping
Summary The spectral content of a digital signal is replicated at integer multiples of the sampling frequency. Oversampling (sampling well beyond the Nyquist rate) spreads the frequency content over a wider frequency range. The requirements on the analog anti-aliasing filter can be relaxed by oversampling followed by digital low-pass filtering. The extra samples in an oversampled and bandwidth-limited signal can be removed by downsampling or decimation, thereby reducing the effective sampling frequency. A signal can be restored to a higher sampling frequency by the processes of upsampling and interpolation. Since Gaussian noise is uniformly distributed in the frequency domain, the combination of oversampling and filtering can effectively de-noise a signal in a bandwidth of interest. Oversampling can be maximized by delta-sigma quantization, which is quantization with one bit. Delta-sigma quantizers have the property of noise-shaping, which allows the elimination of quantization noise by low-pass filtering.
