This set of functions implements Finite Impulse Response (FIR) lattice filters for Q15, Q31 and floating-point data types. Lattice filters are used in a variety of adaptive filter applications. The filter structure is feedforward and the net impulse response is finite length. The functions operate on blocks of input and output data and each call to the function processes blockSize samples through the filter. pSrc and pDst point to input and output arrays containing blockSize values.

Algorithm

The following difference equation is implemented:

pCoeffs points to tha array of reflection coefficients of size numStages. Reflection Coefficients are stored in the following order.

where M is number of stages

pState points to a state array of size numStages. The state variables (g values) hold previous inputs and are stored in the following order. The state variables are updated after each block of data is processed; the coefficients are untouched.

Instance Structure

The coefficients and state variables for a filter are stored together in an instance data structure. A separate instance structure must be defined for each filter. Coefficient arrays may be shared among several instances while state variable arrays cannot be shared. There are separate instance structure declarations for each of the 3 supported data types.

Initialization Functions

There is also an associated initialization function for each data type. The initialization function performs the following operations:

  • Sets the values of the internal structure fields.

  • Zeros out the values in the state buffer. To do this manually without calling the init function, assign the follow subfields of the instance structure: numStages, pCoeffs, pState. Also set all of the values in pState to zero.

Use of the initialization function is optional. However, if the initialization function is used, then the instance structure cannot be placed into a const data section. To place an instance structure into a const data section, the instance structure must be manually initialized. Set the values in the state buffer to zeros and then manually initialize the instance structure as follows:

where numStages is the number of stages in the filter; pState is the address of the state buffer; pCoeffs is the address of the coefficient buffer.

Fixed-Point Behavior

Care must be taken when using the fixed-point versions of the FIR Lattice filter functions. In particular, the overflow and saturation behavior of the accumulator used in each function must be considered. Refer to the function specific documentation below for usage guidelines.
