Hi, I am seeing some negative group delay at 1000, 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000 Hz.

I would like to know if I can predict what the group delay of a CIC filter is. I have an agressive FIR BPF where the sample rate is 2000 x the filter bandwidth. The group delay is longer than I would like it to be. Could a CIC filter offer a lower group delay? I'll need to interpolate back to the original sample rate, so I need to take that into consideration as part of the answer. Thanks, in advance.

I designed an algorithm to compute signal delay through an RF channel. I first verified the algorithm using a known IIR model. I managed to get groupdelay of this IIR spot on compared to that given by Matlab function grpdelay(num,den). The algorithm is based on sending frequency sweep chirp signal followed by fft then conversion of phase to groupdelay using the derivative of negative angular phase with respect to angular frequency. The algorithm has been released and is working well. I am now asked if I could apply it to the case when the available test signal is only single tone instead of frequency sweep. I tested my same algorithm on single tone. All looks ok but with a mystery factor of 2 needed to get IIR model groupdelay match that of matlab. I mean if I multiply the computed groupdelay based on fft by 2 then it gets correct with a small margin of error. Any idea what this factor of 2 might be. In both cases I use real only chirp signal or real only single tone and the fft is complex. Processing is identical throughout the algorithm for both cases in every step.

Dear all I not very familiar with filter design in Matlab and I am probably missin something when it comes to "group delay". My problem comes as follows. From what I have understood, if I have a filter such that its group dela response (plotted with grpdelay[b,a] in matlab with a,b the filte coefficients) provides 17 as the group delay (in samples) at f=0.1 (normalized frequency so f=0.14*fs/2=0.14*500=70Hz, sampling frequenc being 1000 Hz) then passing a sinusoid whose frequency is 70Hz through th filter I should get at the output the same sinusoid (assuming gain is one delayed by...

The Matlab command 'grpdelay' is restricted to digital filters only. Does there exist some counterpart to 'grpdelay' that operates in the analog domain? Some Matlab commands have separate versions for the analog and digital domains, and I wonder why 'grpdelay' does not. For example, the 'butter' command to generate Butterworth filter coefficients has digital and analog versions. The analog version is useful for understanding the stand-alone characteristics of a proposed filter, i.e., the characteristics that are independent of a particular sampled data record. ...

Hello, I have some issues with delays which I would appreciate very much if someone could please clarify for me, as they are not clear to me right now. I would like to know what the difference between an inertial delay and a transport delay is and why VHDL would need to have these two distinct types of delay. Also, it seems to me that specifying delays in VHDL designs can only serve the purose of simulation since the delays inherent in the physical hardware cannot, as far as I know, be controlled with software: they certainly cannot be made smaller than what they are, but I'm not sur...

The channel-group number becomes part of the name of the serial interface you create. For example, if you do this: controller T1 2 channel-group 3 timeslots 1-24 speed 64 then this creates an interface called "Serial 2:3" You can configure multiple channel-groups (and/or ds0-groups if your platform supports it), so pick a unique channel-group/ ds0-group ID for each such group ... e.g. controller t1 2 channel-group 0 timeslots 1-4 speed 64 channel-group 1 timestots 5-12 speed 64 ds0-group 2 timeslots 13-24 type e&m-fgb Aaron ...

I would be very surprised if you can reduce the group delay significantly. Since you require constant group delay you are commited to symmetric FIR filters. Which means that the task is to design the shortest symmetric FIR filter which attains the spec. You may be able to s...
