sigwin.chebwin class

Package: sigwin

Construct Dolph-Chebyshev window object


    Note:   The use of sigwin.chebwin is not recommended. Use chebwin instead.

sigwin.chebwin creates a handle to a Dolph-Chebyshev window object for use in spectral analysis and FIR filtering by the window method. Object methods enable workspace import and ASCII file export of the window values.

The Dolph-Chebyshev window is constructed in the frequency domain by taking samples of the window's Fourier transform:




α determines the level of the sidelobe attenuation. The level of the sidelobe attenuation is equal to 20α. For example, 100 dB of attenuation results from setting α=5

The discrete-time Dolph-Chebyshev window is obtained by taking the inverse DFT of W^(k) and scaling the result to have a peak value of 1.


H = sigwin.chebwin returns a Dolph-Chebyshev window object H of length 64 with relative sidelobe attenuation of 100 dB.

H = sigwin.chebwin(Length) returns a Dolph-Chebyshev window object H of length Length with relative sidelobe attenuation of 100 dB. Length requires a positive integer. Entering a positive noninteger value for Length rounds the length to the nearest integer. A window length of 1 results in a window with a single value equal to 1.

H = sigwin.chebwin(Length,SidelobeAtten) returns a Dolph-Chebyshev window object with relative sidelobe attenuation of atten_param dB.



Dolph-Chebyshev window length.


The attenuation parameter in dB. The attenuation parameter is a positive real number that determines the relative sidelobe attenuation of the window.

Copy Semantics

Handle. To learn how copy semantics affect your use of the class, see Copying Objects in the MATLAB® Programming Fundamentals documentation.


Default length N = 64 Dolph-Chebyshev window with 100 dB relative sidelobe attenuation:

H = sigwin.chebwin;

Generate length N = 128 Chebyshev window with 120 dB attenuation, return values, and write ASCII file:

H = sigwin.chebwin(128,120);
% Return window with generate
win = generate(H);
% Write ASCII file in current directory
% with window values
