This authoritative, leading-edge resource gives you a comprehensive overview of sample rate conversion (SRC) and its applications in software configurable radios. The book helps you understand the limits of feasible systems for sample rate conversion, as well as the limits of interpolation. You get sound advice on selecting the appropriate types of SRC for specific applications, and assistance in handling the trade-off between hardware complexity and the clock rate of a system.

From an introduction to software radio and a refresher on the fundamentals of sampling and sample rate conversion, to discussions on block signal processing and well-known and novel structures for sample rate conversion, the book offers you practical guidance that enables you quickly to find solutions for your challenging projects in the field. This first-of-its-kind reference concludes with a list of questions that - when answered - helps to design a system for sample rate conversion. Over 890 equations and 90 illustrations support key topics throughout the book.
