This paper introduces reconfigurable nonuniform transmultiplexers (TMUXs) based on fixed uniform modulated filter banks (FBs). The TMUXs use parallel processing where polyphase components, of any user, are processed by a number of synthesis FB and analysis FB branches. One branch represents one granularity band, and any user can occupy integer multiples of a granularity band. The proposed TMUX also requires adjustable commutators so that any user occupies any portion of the frequency spectrum. The location and width of this portion can be modified without additional arithmetic complexity or filter redesign. This paper considers both cosine modulated and modified discrete Fourier transform FBs. It discusses the filter design, TMUX realization, and the parameter selection. It is shown that one can indeed decrease the arithmetic complexity by proper choice of system parameters. For the critically sampled case and if the number of channels is higher than necessary, we can reduce the arithmetic complexity. In case of an oversampled system, the arithmetic complexity can be reduced by proper choice of the number of channels and the roll-off factor of the prototype filter. The proposed TMUX is compared to existing reconfigurable TMUXs, and examples are provided for illustration.
