# USRP RX Decimation Rate

Hi All,

I’m a new USRP user. Kindly, I will be very appreciated if someone
could
tell me what is the decimation range of the USRP RX path? I’m really
confused. Is it linear range from [1,2,3,4,…] ?or it is power of 2
[2,4,8,16,…]?

It’s linear and within 4 to 128 inclusive, according to
cic_dec_shifter.v located here:

The CIC decimator does 4 through 128, but this is followed by a halfband
decimator which multiplies this by a factor of 2. Thus, it only does
multiples of 2. 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18. 20, etc. Up to 256
total.

Thank you Brian, Matt.

If the CIC starts linearly from 4 to 128, and followed by decimate by 2 Half
Band Filter (HBF) Then [CIC+HBF] should give us the following range
[8,10,12,14,…,256], and not the range [2,4,6,8,…,256] , is
this correct ?

Correct.
