- ‘The buffer is assumed to be the correct dimensions for the interpolator.’
- ‘When dealing with interpolators, we've provided an interesting extra capability: All interpolators are capable of acting as either a linear or step fashion.’
- ‘Interleaved memory function interpolators are then applied to the specific goal of an accurate logarithmic number system arithmetic unit.’
- ‘This method is used to ask the interpolator which is the best level to use to compress the passed data.’
- ‘The purpose of the interpolators is to calculate intermediate values for a given number of frames between a start value and an end value.’
- ‘All interpolators have a stop method which is called when the interpolation is finished.’
- ‘These interpolators use a multi-bit value approach that permits adders to be used instead of multipliers.’
- ‘A design is given for a quadratic interpolator needed by the Logarithmic Number System.’
- ‘As such, the interpolators provide position feedback up to 4096 times the resolution of the encoders themselves.’
- ‘The techniques can be extended to the design of multistage decimators and/or interpolators.’
- ‘The named phases are then input to a data interpolator in each receiver, which generates 16 local phases.’
