filtord

Syntax

Description

example

n = filtord(b,a) returns the filter order, n, for the causal rational system function specified by the numerator coefficients, b, and denominator coefficients, a.

example

n = filtord(sos) returns the filter order for the filter specified by the second-order sections matrix, sos. sos is a K-by-6 matrix. The number of sections, K, must be greater than or equal to 2. Each row of sos corresponds to the coefficients of a second-order filter. The ith row of the second-order section matrix corresponds to [bi(1) bi(2) bi(3) ai(1) ai(2) ai(3)].

example

n = filtord(d) returns the filter order, n, for the digital filter, d. Use the function designfilt to generate d.

Design a 20th-order FIR filter with normalized cutoff frequency $0.5\pi$ rad/sample using the window method. Verify the filter order.

b = fir1(20,0.5);
n = filtord(b)
n =

    20

Design the same filter using designfilt and verify its order.

di = designfilt('lowpassfir','FilterOrder',20,'CutoffFrequency',0.5);
ni = filtord(di)
ni =

    20

Design FIR equiripple and IIR Butterworth filters from the same set of specifications. Determine the difference in filter order between the two designs.

fir = designfilt('lowpassfir','DesignMethod','equiripple','SampleRate',1e3, ...
                 'PassbandFrequency',100,'StopbandFrequency',120, ...
                 'PassbandRipple',0.5,'StopbandAttenuation',60);
iir = designfilt('lowpassiir','DesignMethod','butter','SampleRate',1e3, ...
                 'PassbandFrequency',100,'StopbandFrequency',120, ...
                 'PassbandRipple',0.5,'StopbandAttenuation',60);
FIR = filtord(fir)
IIR = filtord(iir)
FIR =

Input Arguments

collapse all

Numerator coefficients, specified as a scalar or a vector. If the filter is an allpole filter, b is a scalar. Otherwise, b is a row or column vector.

Example: b = fir1(20,0.25)

Data Types: single | double
Complex Number Support: Yes

Denominator coefficients, specified as a scalar or a vector. If the filter is an FIR filter, a is a scalar. Otherwise, a is a row or column vector.

Example: [b,a] = butter(20,0.25)

Data Types: single | double
Complex Number Support: Yes

Matrix of second order-sections, specified as a K-by-6 matrix. The system function of the Kth biquad filter has the rational Z-transform

Hk(z)=Bk(1)+Bk(2)z1+Bk(3)z2Ak(1)+Ak(2)z1+Ak(3)z2.

The coefficients in the Kth row of the matrix, sos, are ordered as follows.

[Bk(1)Bk(2)Bk(3)Ak(1)Ak(2)Ak(3)].

The frequency response of the filter is the system function evaluated on the unit circle with

z=ej2πf.

Data Types: single | double
Complex Number Support: Yes

Digital filter, specified as a digitalFilter object. Use designfilt to generate a digital filter based on frequency-response specifications.

Example: d = designfilt('lowpassiir','FilterOrder',3,'HalfPowerFrequency',0.5) specifies a third-order Butterworth filter with normalized 3-dB frequency 0.5π rad/sample.

Output Arguments

Filter order, specified as an integer.
