fdesign.arbgrpdelay
Arbitrary group delay filter specification object
Syntax
D = fdesign.arbgrpdelay(SPEC)
D = fdesign.arbgrpdelay(SPEC,SPEC1,SPEC2,...)
D = fdesign.arbgrpdelay(N,F,Gd)
D = fdesign.arbgrpdelay(...,Fs)
Description
Arbitrary group delay filters are allpass filters you can use
for correcting phase distortion introduced by other filters. fdesign.arbgrpdelay
uses
an iterative least pth norm optimization procedure
to minimize the phase response error [1].
specifies
an allpass arbitrary group delay filter with the D
= fdesign.arbgrpdelay(SPEC
)Specification
property
set to SPEC
. See Input Arguments for a description of supported specifications.
initializes
the allpass arbitrary group delay filter specification object with
specifications D
= fdesign.arbgrpdelay(SPEC
,SPEC1,SPEC2,...)SPEC1,SPEC2,...
. See SPEC for a description of supported
specifications.
specifies
an allpass arbitrary group delay filter. The filter order is equal
to D
= fdesign.arbgrpdelay(N,F,Gd)N
, frequency vector equal to F
,
and group delay vector equal to Gd
. See SPEC for a description of the
filter order, frequency vector, and group delay vector inputs. See
the example Design an Allpass Filter With an Arbitrary Group Delay for an example using this syntax.
specifies
the sampling frequency in hertz as a trailing scalar. If you do not
specify a sampling frequency, all frequencies are normalized frequencies
and group delay values are in samples. If you specify a sampling frequency,
group delay values are in seconds.D

Tips
If your arbitrary group delay design produces the error Poorly
conditioned Hessian matrix
, attempt one or more of the following:
Set the
MaxPoleRadius
IIR lp norm design option to some number less than 1. Set this option when youdesign
your filter with the syntax:See the Design an Arbitrary Group Delay Filter and Multiband Delay Equalization examples for the use of thedesign(d,'iirlpnorm','MaxPoleRadius',0.95)
MaxPoleRadius
design option.Reduce the order of your filter design.
Input Arguments

Filter specification.
The filter specifications are defined as follows:
Default: 

Sampling frequency. Specify the sampling frequency as a trailing positive scalar after all other input arguments. Specifying a sampling frequency forces the group delay units to be in seconds. If you specify a sampling frequency, the first element of the frequency vector must be 0. The last element must be the Nyquist frequency, Fs/2. 
Output Arguments

Filter specification object. An allpass arbitrary group delay
filter specification object containing the following modifiable properties: Use the

Algorithms
fdesign.arbgrpdelay
uses a least pth
norm iterative optimization described in [1].
Alternatives
iirgrpdelay
— Returns
an allpass arbitrary group delay filter. The iirgrpdelay
function
returns the numerator and denominator coefficients. This behavior
differs from that of fdesign.arbgrpdelay
, which
returns the filter in secondorder sections. iirgrpdelay
accepts
only normalized frequencies.
