An efficient echo tail canceller is proposed for use with the 2B1Q receiver for ISDN (integrated services digital network) applications. The overall echo cancellor is composed of a direct form FIR (finite impulse response) main canceller to cancel the main part of the echo followed by an adaptive interpolative FIR section (AIFIR) for tail cancellation. The AIFIR is a cascade of an adaptive sparse filter and a fixed interpolator filter. Preliminary results show that, by implementing the interpolator as a cascade of combinations of comb filters, one can achieve echo attenuation close to that obtainable by min-max interpolators while reducing the number of multipliers required
