Different decimations may use one, two , or no half-band filters in the
decimator. For decimations
that are even and a multiple of 4, two half-bands are used. For
decimations that are simply
even, a single half-band is used, and for odd decimations, no half
bands are used. Odd
decimation is not recommended.
Also, total measured power is proportional to bandwidth.
