Real or complex frequency-sampled FIR filter from specification object

`hd = design(d,' freqsamp')hd = design(...,'filterstructure',structure)hd = design(...,'window',window)`

`hd = design(d,' freqsamp')` designs
a frequency-sampled filter specified by the filter specifications
object

`hd = design(...,' filterstructure',structure)` returns
a filter with the filter structure you specify by the

`hd = design(...,' window',window)` designs
filters using the window specified by the string in

A string for the window type. For example, use

`'bartlett'`, or`'hamming'`. See`window`for the full list of windows available in the*Signal Processing Toolbox™ User's Guide*.A function handle that references the

`window`function. When the`window`function requires more than one input, use a cell array to hold the required arguments. The first example shows a cell array input argument.The window vector itself.

These examples design FIR filters that have arbitrary magnitude responses. In the first filter, the response has three distinct sections and the resulting filter is real.

The second example creates a complex filter.

b1 = 0:0.01:0.18; b2 = [.2 .38 .4 .55 .562 .585 .6 .78]; b3 = [0.79:0.01:1]; a1 = .5+sin(2*pi*7.5*b1)/4; % Sinusoidal response section. a2 = [.5 2.3 1 1 -.2 -.2 1 1]; % Piecewise linear response section. a3 = .2+18*(1-b3).^2; % Quadratic response section. f = [b1 b2 b3]; a = [a1 a2 a3]; n = 300; d = fdesign.arbmag('n,f,a',n,f,a); % First specifications object. hd = design(d,'freqsamp','window',{@kaiser,.5}); % Filter. fvtool(hd)

The plot from FVTool shows the response for `hd`.

Now design the arbitrary-magnitude complex FIR filter. Recall
that vector `f` contains frequency locations and
vector `a` contains the desired filter response values
at the locations specified in `f`.

f = [-1 -.93443 -.86885 -.80328 -.7377 -.67213 -.60656 -.54098 ... -.47541,-.40984 -.34426 -.27869 -.21311 -.14754 -.081967 ... -.016393 .04918 .11475,.18033 .2459 .31148 .37705 .44262 ... .5082 .57377 .63934 .70492 .77049,.83607 .90164 1]; a = [.0095848 .021972 .047249 .099869 .23119 .57569 .94032 ... .98084 .99707,.99565 .9958 .99899 .99402 .99978 .99995 .99733 ... .99731 .96979 .94936,.8196 .28502 .065469 .0044517 .018164 ... .023305 .02397 .023141 .021341,.019364 .017379 .016061]; n = 48; d = fdesign.arbmag('n,f,a',n,f,a); % Second spec. object. hdc = design(d,'freqsamp','window','rectwin'); % Filter. fvtool(hdc)

FVTool shows you the response for `hdc` from
-1 to 1 in normalized frequency because the filter's transfer function
is not symmetric around 0. Since the Fourier transform of the filter
does not exhibit conjugate symmetry, `design(d,...)` returns
a complex—valued filter for `hdc` .
