Interpolate signal using polyphase FIR half band filter
Filtering / Filter Designs
The FIR Halfband Interpolator block performs interpolation of the input signal by a factor of two. The block uses an FIR equiripple design to construct the halfband filters. To filter the input, the block uses an efficient polyphase implementation. The implementation takes advantage of the zero-valued coefficients of the FIR halfband filter, making one of the polyphase branches a delay. You can also use the block to implement the synthesis portion of a two-band filter bank to synthesize a signal from lowpass and highpass subbands.
The input signal can be a real- or complex-valued column vector or matrix. If the input signal is a matrix, each column of the matrix is treated as an independent channel. The block supports fixed-point operations and ARM® Cortex® code generation. For more information on ARM Cortex code generation, refer ARM Cortex-M and ARM Cortex-A Optimization.
Parameters used to design FIR halfband filter. The filter design has only two degrees of freedom, so you can specify only two of the three parameters:
Transition width and stopband attenuation
(default) — Design the filter using Transition width
(Hz) and Stopband attenuation (dB).
This design is the minimum order design.
Filter order and transition width —
Design the filter using Filter order and Transition
Filter order and stopband attenuation —
Design the filter using Filter order and Stopband
Transition width, specified as a real positive scalar in Hz.
The transition width must be less than half the input sample rate.
You can specify the transition width only when Filter specification is
Filter order and transition width or
width and stopband attenuation. The default is
Filter order, specified as an even positive integer. You can
specify only when Filter specification is set
Filter order and transition width or
order and stopband attenuation. The default is
Stopband attenuation, specified as a real positive scalar in
dB. You can specify the stopband attenuation only when Filter
specification is set to
Filter order and stopband
Transition width and stopband
attenuation. The default is
When you select this check box, the block acts as a synthesis filter bank and synthesizes a signal from the highpass and lowpass subbands. When you clear this check box, the block acts as an FIR half band interpolator and accepts a single vector– or matrix–valued input.
When you select this check box, the block inherits its sample rate from the input signal. When you clear this check box, you specify the sample rate in Input Sample Rate (Hz).
Input sample rate, specified as a scalar in Hz. The default
Opens the Filter Visualization Tool FVTool and displays the magnitude/phase response of the FIR Halfband Interpolator. The response is based on the block dialog box parameters. Changes made to these parameters update FVTool.
To update the magnitude response while FVTool is running, modify the dialog box parameters and click Apply.
Type of simulation to run. You can set this parameter to:
Code generation (default)
Simulate model using generated C code. The first time you run
a simulation, Simulink® generates C code for the block. The C
code is reused for subsequent simulations, as long as the model does
not change. This option requires additional startup time but provides
faster simulation speed than
Simulate model using the MATLAB® interpreter. This
option shortens startup time but has slower simulation speed than
Rounding method for the output fixed-point operations. The rounding
Zero. The default is
Fixed-point data type of the coefficients, specified as one of the following:
— Signed fixed-point data type of word length
with binary point scaling. The block determines the fraction length
automatically from the coefficient values in such a way that the coefficients
occupy maximum representable range without overflowing.
Signed fixed-point data type of word length
0. You can change the fraction
length to any other integer value.
<data type expression> —
Specify the data type using an expression that evaluates to a data
type object, for example, numeric type (
