AbstractThe drive towards higher accuracy and sampling rates has raised the bar for modern FTI signal conditioning. This paper focuses on the issue of anti-alias filtering. Today's 16-bit (and greater resolution) ADC’s, coupled with the drive for optimum sampling rates, means that filters have to be more accurate and yet more flexible than ever before. However, in order to take full advantage of these advances, it is important to understand the trade-offs involved and to correctly specify the system filtering requirements. Trade-offs focus on: • Analog vs. Digital signal conditioning • FIR vs. IIR Digital Filters • Signal bandwidth vs. Sampling rate • Coherency issues such as filter phase distortion vs. delay This paper will discuss each of these aspects. In particular, it will focus on some of the advantages of digital filtering various analog filter techniques. This paper will also look at some ideas for specifying filter cut-off and characteristics.
