Matched filtering has found its way in many diverse applications such as communication, signal processing and more. The emphasis of this paper is on the design and analysis of a sigma-delta (ΣΔ) modulated ternary Matched Filter aimed at digital signal processing. The filter coefficients are made ternary {+ 1, − 1, 0} using the Ternary Quantizer. The performance of the new design is measured on the basis of Probability of error versus Signal-to-noise ratio and it was discovered that the performance curve of the single-bit designed Matched Filter is approximately in agreement with the theoretical SNR versus Probability of error curve and works satisfactorily satisfactorily like a multi-bit Matched Filter and as an extension, the functionality of the above mentioned design is also generated on Xilinx System Generator and is successfully synthesized, simulated and verified on FPGA.
