This block performs a frequency translation on the signal, as well as downsamples the signal by running a decimating FIR filter on it. It can be used as a channelizer, to pull out a narrowband portion of a wideband signal, without that narrowband portion having to be centered in frequency.

Parameters

Decimation
The integer ratio between the input and the output signal’s sampling rate.
Taps
The vector of the complex or real taps of the FIR filter. You can generate these taps within the parameter box using firdes, for example:
Real taps:
 firdes.low_pass(1,samp_rate,samp_rate/(2*decimation), transition_bw)
Complex taps:
 firdes.complex_band_pass(1, samp_rate, -samp_rate/(2*decimation), samp_rate/(2*decimation), transition_bw)
Note: transition_bw is the transition bandwidth of the filter in Hz. The lower it is, the more taps the function will generate, and the more CPU time it will take to apply this filter. This parameter will determine the CPU usage and thus the execution speed of the block.
Center Frequency
The frequency translation offset frequency.
Sample Rate
The sample rate of the input signal.
