Conference paper


Lifting scheme is widely used in signal processing applications due to advantages such as fast implementation, less computational complexity, and perfect reconstruction (Cohen A, Daubechies, I, Feauveau J, Commun Pure Appl Math, 1992). The proposed work discusses the design of a Novel Lifting-based Filter Bank (NLFB) for analyzing bird calls and songs. The proposed filter bank has four lifting steps such as split, predict, update, and merge that are used for perfect decomposition and reconstruction. The proposed NLFB consumes 65% less area and 17% less power when compared to interpolated filter bank.
