Estimate weights of LMS adaptive filter

**Library:**DSP System Toolbox / Filtering / Adaptive Filters

The LMS Update block estimates the weights of an LMS adaptive filter. The block accepts the data and error as inputs and computes the filter weights based on the algorithm the block chooses. For more details on the algorithms, see Algorithms.

You can use this block to compute the adaptive filter weights in applications such as system identification, inverse modeling, and filtered-x LMS algorithms, which are used in acoustic noise cancellation. For more details, see References.

The block computes filter weight estimates using .

The function is defined according to the LMS
algorithm you specify through the **Algorithm** parameter:

—`LMS`

—`Normalized LMS`

In the

`Normalized LMS`

algorithm,*ε*is a small positive constant that overcomes the potential numerical instability in the update of weights.For double-precision floating-point inputs,

*ε*is`2.2204460492503131e-016`

. For single-precision floating-point inputs,*ε*is`1.192092896e-07`

. For fixed-point input,*ε*is 0.—`Sign-Error LMS`
