Apply pulse shaping by interpolating signal using raised cosine filter
Raised Cosine Transmit Filter System object™ applies
pulse-shaping by interpolating an input signal using a raised cosine
To interpolate the input signal:
Define and set up your raised cosine transmit filter object. See Construction.

a raised cosine transmit filter System object,
which interpolates an input signal using a raised cosine FIR filter.
The filter uses an efficient polyphase FIR interpolation structure
and has unit energy.

This example shows how to interpolate a signal using the
comm.RaisedCosineTransmitFilter System object and to display its spectrum.
Create a square root raised square root cosine transmit filter object. You can see that its default settings are such that the filter has a square root shape and that there are 8 samples per symbol.
txfilter = comm.RaisedCosineTransmitFilter
txfilter = comm.RaisedCosineTransmitFilter with properties: Shape: 'Square root' RolloffFactor: 0.2000 FilterSpanInSymbols: 10 OutputSamplesPerSymbol: 8 Gain: 1
Generate random bipolar data.
data = 2*randi([0 1],10000,1) - 1;
Filter the data by using the RRC filter.
filteredData = txfilter(data);
To view the spectrum of the filtered signal, create a spectrum analyzer object with a sample rate of 1000 Hz.
spectrumAnalyzer = dsp.SpectrumAnalyzer('SampleRate',1000);
View the spectrum of the filtered signal using the spectrum analyzer.
This example shows to create an interpolated signal from a square root raised cosine filter that is truncated to six symbol durations.
Create a raised cosine filter and set the
FilterSpanInSymbols to 6. The object truncates the impulse response to six symbols.
txfilter = comm.RaisedCosineTransmitFilter('FilterSpanInSymbols',6);
Launch the filter visualization tool to show the impulse response.
Generate random bipolar data and pass it through the filter.
x = 2*randi([0 1],96,1) - 1; y = txfilter(x);
Plot the interpolated signal.

This example shows how to create a raised cosine transmit filter with unity passband gain.
Generate a filter with unit energy. You can obtain the filter coefficients using the
txfilter = comm.RaisedCosineTransmitFilter; b = coeffs(txfilter);
Plot the filter response. You can see that its gain is greater than unity (more than 0 dB).
A filter with unity passband gain has filter coefficients that sum to 1. Set the
Gain property to the inverse of the sum of
txfilter.Gain = 1/sum(b.Numerator);
Verify that the resulting filter coefficients sum to 1.
bNorm = coeffs(txfilter); sum(bNorm.Numerator)
ans = 1.0000
Plot the filter frequency response. Note that it shows a passband gain of 0 dB.
