The FIRRateConverter
performs sampling rate
conversion by a rational factor on a vector or matrix input. The FIR
rate convertor cascades an interpolator with a decimator. The interpolator
upsamples the input by the upsampling factor, L,
followed by a lowpass FIR filter. The FIR filter acts both as an antiimaging
filter and an antialiasing filter prior to decimation. The decimator
downsamples the output of upsampling and FIR filtering by the downsampling
factor M. You must use upsampling and downsampling
factors that are relatively prime, or coprime. The resulting discretetime
signal has a sampling rate L/M times the original
sampling rate.
To perform sampling rate conversion:
Define and set up your FIR sample rate converter. See Construction.
Call step
to perform sampling rate
conversion according to the properties of dsp.FIRRateConverter
.
The behavior of step
is specific to each object in
the toolbox.
Note:
Starting in R2016b, instead of using the 
firrc = dsp.FIRRateConverter
returns
a FIR sample rate converter, firrc
, that resamples
an input signal at a rate 3/2 times the original sampling rate.
firrc = dsp.FIRRateConverter('

and other specified properties set to the specified values.

Interpolation factor Specify the integer upsampling factor. The default is 

Decimation factor Specify the integer downsampling factor. The default is 

FIR filter coefficients Specify the FIR filter coefficients in powers of z^{1}.
The length of filter coefficients must exceed the interpolation factor.
