Name: Dealing with propagating truncation errors.

Category: Algorithmic tricks.

Application: When values are truncated, and the truncated values are used later in the algorithm, ultimately corrupting the output.

It is possible to use the Parks-McClellan algorithm to design FIR filters with non-linear phase response. For example, a FIR filter with the equivalent response of a Butterworth filter can be designed using the P-M routine.

Name: Fast floating point to mu-law conversion

Category: Algorithmic

Application: When you need to convert audio data to mu-law and don't have a lot of time to mess around.

Advantages: Very Fast (I implemented this in a seven cycle loop on a Sharc processor).

DSP Trick: Filtering in QAM transmitters and receivers

Subject: Re: DSP Tricks
From: Allan Herriman

THIS WORK IS PLACED IN THE PUBLIC DOMAIN

Name: Filtering in QAM transmitters and receivers. When *NOT* to do what the textbooks tell you to do.

Category: Hardware architecture, or implementation

Application: QAM receivers (with hardware emphasis)

Advantages: The textbook descriptions of QAM receivers sometimes miss practical details. "Optimal" solutions may not be the best ones...

DSP Trick: FIR Filtering in C

Subject: DSP Trick: Filtering
From: rainer.storn@infineon.com

THIS WORK IS PLACED IN THE PUBLIC DOMAIN

Name: Filtering in C

Category: Programming Trick

Application: FIR-Filtering

Advantages: Simple and fast

Introduction:

This is more like a trick in C but might also be applicable in DSP environments. It allows to compute FIR-filtering in a fast manner when the filter length contains a factor of, let's say 4 (other factors are also possible).
