Channelization is one of the most important operations in building digital electronic warfare (EW) receivers. The equivalent analog operation is the filter bank. Therefore, digital channelization can be considered a digital filter bank. It can also be considered as an N-port network with one input and N-1 outputs. An input signal will appear at a certain output according to its frequency. By measuring the outputs from the filter bank, the frequency of the input signal can be determined. The design of a specific digital filter bank will be presented. This specific example is used to illustrate the design procedure while avoiding the unnecessary mathematical complexity of a general design. In this example the concepts of polyphase filter and multirate operation will be introduced. In order to understand these concepts, decimation and interpolation are discussed first.
