firlp2hp

Convert FIR lowpass filter to Type I FIR highpass filter

Syntax

g = firlp2hp(b)
g = firlp2hp(b,'narrow')
g = firlp2hp(b,'wide')

Description

g = firlp2hp(b) transforms the lowpass FIR filter b into a Type I highpass FIR filter g with zero-phase response Hr(π-w). Filter b can be any FIR filter, including a nonlinear-phase filter.

The passband and stopband ripples of g will be equal to the passband and stopband ripples of b.

g = firlp2hp(b,'narrow') transforms the lowpass FIR filter b into a Type I narrow band highpass FIR filter g with zero-phase response Hr(π-w). b can be any FIR filter, including a nonlinear-phase filter.

g = firlp2hp(b,'wide') transforms the Type I lowpass FIR filter b with zero-phase response Hr(w) into a Type I wide band highpass FIR filter g with zero-phase response 1 - Hr(w). Note the restriction that b must be a Type I linear-phase filter.

For this case, the passband and stopband ripples of g will be equal to the stopband and passband ripples of b.

Examples

Overlay the original narrowband lowpass (the prototype filter) and the post-conversion narrowband highpass and wideband highpass filters to compare and assess the conversion. The following plot shows the results.

b = firgr(36,[0 .2 .25 1],[1 1 0 0],[1 3]);
h = firlp2hp(b);
hfvt = fvtool(b,1,h,1);
legend(hfvt,'Prototype Lowpass','Narrowband Highpass');
