calculated at the point –3 dB down from the center frequency
of the peak or notch. For example, setting |

These examples demonstrate how to create IIR comb filter specification objects. First, create a default specification object.
In the next example, create a notching filter of order 8 with a bandwidth of 0.02 (normalized frequency) referenced to the –3 dB point.
d = fdesign.comb('notch','N,BW',8,0.02); Hd = design(d); fvtool(Hd)
Next, create a peaking comb filter with 5 peaks and a quality factor of 25.
d = fdesign.comb('peak','N,Q',5,25); Hd = design(d); fvtool(Hd)
In the next example, create a notching filter to remove interference at 60 Hz and its harmonics. The following code creates a filter with 10 notches and a notch bandwidth of 5 Hz referenced to the -4dB level. The filter has a shelving filter order of 4 and a sampling frequency of 600 Hz. Because the notches are equidistantly spaced in the interval [-300, 300] Hz, they occur at multiples of 60 Hz.
d = fdesign.comb('notch','L,BW,GBW,Nsh',10,5,-4,4,600); Hd=design(d); fvtool(Hd)
