Cascaded Integrator-Comb (CIC) filters (sometimes called "Hogenauer" filters) are a special class of filters described by Eugene B. Hogenauer in his classic paper An Economical Class of Digital Filters for Decimation and Interpolation*. CIC filters are typically used in hardware (integrated circuit) implementations of FIR decimators and interpolators.
The CIC Editor is shown below:
ScopeFIR lets you analyze CIC filters by generating an impulse response identical to that of a CIC filter with the given parameters. You specify the:
To use the CIC Editor:
Once a filter has been designed, you can check its Frequency Response. If the Automatic option is enabled, ScopeFIR will show you the frequency response at zero (DC) and at the peak of each major sidelobe. (See Using the Frequency Response List for more information on the Frequency Response list.)
