Bandpass filter specification object

`D = fdesign.bandpassD = fdesign.bandpass( SPEC)D = fdesign.bandpass(spec,specvalue1,specvalue2,...)D = fdesign.bandpass(specvalue1,specvalue2,specvalue3,specvalue4,...specvalue4,specvalue5,specvalue6)D = fdesign.bandpass(...,Fs)D = fdesign.bandpass(...,MAGUNITS)`

`D = fdesign.bandpass` constructs
a bandpass filter specification object `D`, applying
default values for the properties `Fstop1`, `Fpass1`, `Fpass2`, `Fstop2`, `Astop1`, `Apass`,
and `Astop2` — one possible set of values
you use to specify a bandpass filter.

`D = fdesign.bandpass( SPEC)` constructs
object

`'Fst1,Fp1,Fp2,Fst2,Ast1,Ap,Ast2'`(default`spec`)`'N,F3dB1,F3dB2'``"N,F3dB1,F3dB2,Ap'`*`'N,F3dB1,F3dB2,Ast'`*`'N,F3dB1,F3dB2,Ast1,Ap,Ast2'`*`'N,F3dB1,F3dB2,BWp`*`'N,F3dB1,F3dB2,BWst'`*`'N,Fc1,Fc2'``'N,Fc1,Fc2,Ast1,Ap,Ast2'``'N,Fp1,Fp2,Ap'``'N,Fp1,Fp2,Ast1,Ap,Ast2'``'N,Fst1,Fp1,Fp2,Fst2'``'N,Fst1,Fp1,Fp2,Fst2,C'`*`'N,Fst1,Fp1,Fp2,Fst2,Ap'`*`'N,Fst1,Fst2,Ast'``'Nb,Na,Fst1,Fp1,Fp2,Fst2'`*

The string entries are defined as follows:

`Ap`— amount of ripple allowed in the pass band. Also called Apass.`Ast1`— attenuation in the first stop band in decibels (the default units). Also called Astop1.`Ast2`— attenuation in the second stop band in decibels (the default units). Also called Astop2.`BWp`— bandwidth of the filter passband. Specified in normalized frequency units.`BWst`— bandwidth of the filter stopband. Specified in normalized frequency units.`C`— Constrained band flag. This enables you to specify passband ripple or stopband attenuation for fixed-order designs in one or two of the three bands.In the specification string

`'N,Fst1,Fp1,Fp2,Fst2,C'`, you cannot specify constraints in both stopbands and the passband simultaneously. You can specify constraints in any one or two bands.`F3dB1`— cutoff frequency for the point 3 dB point below the passband value for the first cutoff. Specified in normalized frequency units. (IIR filters)`F3dB2`— cutoff frequency for the point 3 dB point below the passband value for the second cutoff. Specified in normalized frequency units. (IIR filters)`Fc1`— cutoff frequency for the point 6 dB point below the passband value for the first cutoff. Specified in normalized frequency units. (FIR filters)`Fc2`— cutoff frequency for the point 6 dB point below the passband value for the second cutoff. Specified in normalized frequency units. (FIR filters)`Fp1`— frequency at the edge of the start of the pass band. Specified in normalized frequency units. Also called Fpass1.`Fp2`— frequency at the edge of the end of the pass band. Specified in normalized frequency units. Also called Fpass2.`Fst1`— frequency at the edge of the start of the first stop band. Specified in normalized frequency units. Also called Fstop1.`Fst2`— frequency at the edge of the start of the second stop band. Specified in normalized frequency units. Also called Fstop2.`N`— filter order for FIR filters. Or both the numerator and denominator orders for IIR filters when na and nb are not provided.`Na`— denominator order for IIR filters`Nb`— numerator order for IIR filters

Graphically, the filter specifications look similar to those shown in the following figure.

Regions between specification values like `Fst1` and `Fp1` are
transition regions where the filter response is not explicitly defined.

The filter design methods that apply to a bandpass filter specification
object change depending on the `Specification` string.
Use `designmethods` to determine
which design methods apply to an object and the `Specification` property
value.

Use `designopts` to determine
the design options for a given design method. Enter `help(D,METHOD)` at
the MATLAB^{®} command line to obtain detailed help on the design
options for a given design method, `METHOD`.

`D = fdesign.bandpass(spec,specvalue1,specvalue2,...)` constructs
an object `D` and sets its specifications at construction
time.

`D = fdesign.bandpass(specvalue1,specvalue2,specvalue3,specvalue4,...specvalue4,specvalue5,specvalue6)` constructs

`D = fdesign. bandpass(...,Fs)` adds
the argument

`D = fdesign. bandpass(...,MAGUNITS)` specifies
the units for any magnitude specification you provide in the input
arguments.

`'linear'`— specify the magnitude in linear units`'dB'`— specify the magnitude in dB (decibels)`'squared'`— specify the magnitude in power units

When you omit the `MAGUNITS` argument, `fdesign` assumes
that all magnitudes are in decibels. Note that `fdesign` stores
all magnitude specifications in decibels (converting to decibels when
necessary) regardless of how you specify the magnitudes.

Filter a discrete-time signal with a bandpass filter. The signal is a sum of three discrete-time sinusoids, π/8, π/2, and 3π/4 radians/sample.

n = 0:159; x = cos(pi/8*n)+cos(pi/2*n)+sin(3*pi/4*n);

Design an FIR equiripple bandpass filter to remove the lowest and highest discrete-time sinusoids.

d = fdesign.bandpass('Fst1,Fp1,Fp2,Fst2,Ast1,Ap,Ast2',1/4,3/8,5/8,6/8,60,1,60); Hd = design(d,'equiripple');

Apply the filter to the discrete-time signal.

y = filter(Hd,x); freq = 0:(2*pi)/length(x):pi; xdft = fft(x); ydft = fft(y); plot(freq,abs(xdft(1:length(x)/2+1))); hold on; plot(freq,abs(ydft(1:length(x)/2+1)),'r','linewidth',2); legend('Original Signal','Bandpass Signal');

Design an IIR Butterworth filter of order 10 with 3–dB frequencies of 1 and 1.2 kHz. The sampling frequency is 10 kHz

d = fdesign.bandpass('N,F3dB1,F3dB2',10,1e3,1.2e3,1e4); Hd = design(d,'butter'); fvtool(Hd)

This example requires the DSP System Toolbox software.

Design a constrained-band FIR equiripple filter of order 100 with a passband of [1, 1.4] kHz. Both stopband attenuation values are constrained to 60 dB. The sampling frequency is 10 kHz.

d = fdesign.bandpass('N,Fst1,Fp1,Fp2,Fst2,C',100,800,1e3,1.4e3,1.6e3,1e4); d.Stopband1Constrained = true; d.Astop1 = 60; d.Stopband2Constrained = true; d.Astop2 = 60; Hd = design(d,'equiripple'); fvtool(Hd); measure(Hd)

The passband ripple is slightly over 2 dB. Because the design constrains both stopbands, you cannot constrain the passband ripple.
