Second-order tunable notching and peaking IIR filter
NotchPeakFilter object filters each channel
of the input using IIR filter implementation.
To filter each channel of the input:
Define and set up your NotchPeak filter. See Construction.

npFilter = dsp.NotchPeakFilter returns
a second-order notching and peaking IIR filter which independently
filters each channel of the input over time, using a specified center
frequency and 3 dB bandwidth. Both of these properties are specified
in Hz and are tunable. Both of these values must be scalars between
half the sample rate.
npFilter = dsp.NotchPeakFilter(' returns a notch filter with each specified property
name set to the specified value. You can specify additional name-value
pair arguments in any order as
npFilter = dsp.NotchPeakFilter('specification','Quality
factor and center frequency') specifies the quality factor
(Q factor) of the notch or peak filter instead of the
bandwidth. The Q factor is defined as the center frequency divided
by the bandwidth. A higher Q factor corresponds to a narrower notch
or peak. The Q factor should be a scalar value greater than 0. The
Q factor is tunable.
npFilter = dsp.NotchPeakFilter('Specification','Coefficients') specifies
the coefficient values that affect bandwidth and center frequency
directly, rather than specifying the design parameters in Hz. This
removes the trigonometry calculations involved when the properties
are tuned. The

This example shows how to use dsp.NotchPeakFilter as a notch filter with center frequency of 5000 Hz and a 3 dB bandwidth of 500 Hz.
Note: This example runs only in R2016b or later. If you are using an earlier release, replace each call to the function with the equivalent
step syntax. For example, myObject(x) becomes step(myObject,x).
npFilter = dsp.NotchPeakFilter('CenterFrequency',5000,'Bandwidth',500); sa = dsp.SpectrumAnalyzer('SampleRate',44100,... 'PlotAsTwoSidedSpectrum',false,'SpectralAverages',50); for i=1:5000 y = npFilter(randn(1024,1)); sa(y); if (i==2500) % Tune center frequency to 10000 npFilter.CenterFrequency = 10000; end end release(npFilter) release(sa)
The design equations for this filter are:
The previous equation is for peak filter, and the following equation is for notch filter.
where ω0 = 2πf0/fs is the center frequency in radians/sample (f0 is the center frequency in Hz and fs is the sampling frequency in Hz). Δω = 2πΔf/fs is the 3 dB bandwidth in radians/sample (Δf is the 3 dB bandwidth in Hz). Note that the two filters are complementary:
The filter is implemented as follows:
Notice that Gcf depends only on the center frequency, and G3dB depends only on the 3 dB bandwidth.
