Architecture Options for Cascaded Filters
You can specify unique serial, distributed arithmetic, or parallel architectures for each
stage of cascade filters. These options lead to area efficient implementations of cascade
filters, including Digital Down Converter (DDC), and Digital Up Converter (DUC) objects. You
can use this feature only with the command-line interface (
When you use the Generate HDL dialog box, each stage of a cascade uses the same architecture
You can pass a cell array of values to the
DARadix properties, with each element corresponding to its respective stage. To
skip the corresponding specification for a stage, specify the default value of that property.
When you set a partition to a size of
-1, the coder implements a parallel
architecture for that stage.
When you create a cascaded filter, Filter Design HDL Coder™ software performs the following actions:
Generates code for each stage as per the inferred architecture.
Generates an timing controller at the top level. This controller then produces clock enables for the module in each stage, which corresponds to the rate and folding factor of that module.
hdlfilterserialinfo function to display the
effective filter length and partitioning options for each filter stage of a cascade.
