The work presented in this document contributes to the ROBR Reconfigurable Omni Band Radio project started by the Defence Research Establishment Ottawa and the Communication Research Centre in 1997. ROBR is a testhed implementation of a reconfigurable satellite communications satcom terminal that makes use of a software communications architecture. Such a system can enable the use of a single ground terminal to communicate over multiple satellite communications or terrestrial links by supporting multiple standards. The ROBR hardware architecture includes a microprocessor and several digital signal processor DSP boards. The objective of this report is to document the work done to provide a set of reconfigurable digital filters for use in the ROBR. Five infinite impulse response IIR filtering modules and four finite impulse response FIR filtering modules have been implemented. The function of these modules is to compute the coefficients of a desired filter design. Also, IIR and FIR signal processing modules have been implemented to process digital signals using the computed coefficients. The modules have been implemented in the C programming language and are targeted for use on a DSP chip. The implementation of the modules has been verified and compared with the results obtained with the Signal Processing toolbox from MATLAB.
