Hello, I am trying to do linear regression (approximation) on current samples that I receive from a SINC filter. The SINC filter has a clock of 20MHz and the output(current sample) of the SINC filter block changes every 1.25 MHz. Now I need to use this data (whenever there is new value) to do Linear regression which will have a clock of 160MHz. Can anyone give me an idea on how to do linear regression on the samples only when there is a new data(every 1.25MHz) from the SINC filter block?? To perform linear regression I need to find the average value of samples recursively for which I would need to increment a counter whenever there is new sample and reset to 0 after regression calculation, I also need an idea on how to realise this counter?? I have the VHDL code for recursive averaging, the count is not propererly implemented.

You will have to implement a simple 2wayhandshake to hand over data and guarantee their uniqueness between modules. Further I'm not sure what you mean by "recursive average". I'm guessing moving average in which case the easiest way is to use a FWFT FIFO. Say you want to average the latest 32 data points:
if in_valid = '1' then sum := sum + in_data; fifo_in <= in_data; fifo_we <= '1'; if count = 31 then sum := sum  fifo_out; fifo_re <= '1'; else count <= count + 1; end if; avg <= sum / 32; end if;
