A Bell 103 equivalent modem is illustrated in the block diagram. The unique features of this design include: A. Bandpass Filter 1 is implemented in microcode as opposed to hardware front-end filter (FIR). Signal processor-based modems are hybrid designs, utilizing at least a hardware bandpass filter. A general-purpose signal processor is employed to avoid the use of any hardware filters. Minimal code size allows enough processor time to implement a complex bandpass filter. This also reduces costs by avoiding hardware filters, and allows other applications access to the full signal bandwidth available. B. Off-band tuning of high band filter 2 and low band filter 3 allows single Bi-Quad filters for data separators.
