iirlp2xc

Transform IIR lowpass filter to IIR complex N-point filter

Description

example

[num,den,allpassNum,allpassDen] = iirlp2xc(b,a,wo,wt) transforms an IIR lowpass filter to an IIR complex N-point filter.

The prototype lowpass filter is specified with the numerator b and the denominator a. The function returns the numerator and the denominator coefficients of the transformed IIR complex N-point filter. The function also returns the numerator, allpassNum, and the denominator, allpassDen, of the allpass mapping filter.

The function transforms a real lowpass prototype filter to an N-point complex filter by applying an Nth-order real lowpass to complex multipoint frequency transformation, where N is the number of features being mapped and is given by the length of the vector wo. For more details, see IIR Lowpass Filter to IIR Complex N-Point Filter Transformation.

Transform Filter Using iirlp2xc

Transform the real prototype lowpass filter to an IIR complex N-point filter.

Specify the prototype filter as a vector of numerator and denominator coefficients, b and a respectively.

[num,den] = iirlp2xc(b,a,[-0.5 0.5],[-0.25 0.25]);

Compare the magnitude response of the filters using FVTool. The transformed filter has complex coefficients and is indeed a bandpass filter.

Alternatively, you can also specify the input lowpass IIR filter as a matrix of coefficients. Pass the second-order section matrices as inputs. The numerator and the denominator coefficients of the transformed filter are given by num2 and den2, respectively.

ss = tf2sos(b,a);
[num2,den2] = iirlp2xc(ss(:,1:3),ss(:,4:6),...
    [-0.5 0.5],[-0.25 0.25]);

Compare the magnitude response of the filters using FVTool.

IIR Lowpass Filter to IIR Complex N-Point Filter Transformation

IIR lowpass filter to IIR complex N-point filter transformation effectively places N features of the original filter, located at frequencies wo1, … ,woN, at the required target frequency locations, wt1, … ,wtM. The function iirlp2xc requires that N and M are equal.

Relative positions of other features of the original filter are the same in the target filter for the Nyquist mobility and are reversed for the DC mobility. For the Nyquist mobility this means that it is possible to select two features of an original filter, F1 and F2, with F1 preceding F2. Feature F1 will still precede F2 after the transformation. However, the distance between F1 and F2 will not be the same before and after the transformation. For DC mobility feature F2 will precede F1 after the transformation.

Choice of the feature subject to this transformation is not restricted to the cutoff frequency of an original lowpass filter. In general it is possible to select any feature; e.g., a stopband edge, DC, the deep minimum in the stopband, or other ones. Select features such that there is no band overlap when creating N bands around the unit circle.

IIR lowpass filter to IIR complex N-point filter transformation can also be used to transform other types of filters, for example, notch filters or resonators can be easily replicated at a number of required frequency locations. A good application would be an adaptive tone cancellation circuit reacting to the changing number and location of tones.
