Digital Filter Design

FIR, IIR, windowing, equiripple, least squares, Butterworth, Chebyshev, elliptic, pulse shaping

Design digital filters using as a starting point a set of specifications (designfilt) or a design algorithm (butter, fir1). Generate FIR differentiators and Hilbert filters.

Filter Designer Design filters starting with algorithm selection


IIR Filter Design

Compare classical Butterworth, Chebyshev, and elliptic designs. Explore Bessel, Yule-Walker, and generalized Butterworth filters.

FIR Filter Design

Use windowing, least squares, or the Parks-McClellan algorithm to design lowpass, highpass, multiband, or arbitrary-response filters, differentiators, or Hilbert transformers.

Filter Implementation and Analysis

Learn to filter signals using the filter function.

Anti-Causal, Zero-Phase Filter Implementation

Eliminate the phase distortion introduced by an IIR filter.

Compensate for the Delay Introduced by an FIR Filter

Use indexing to counteract the time shifts introduced by filtering.

Compensate for the Delay Introduced by an IIR Filter

Remove delays and distortion introduced by filtering, when it is critical to keep phase information intact.

Take Derivatives of a Signal

Use a differentiator filter to differentiate a signal without amplifying the noise.

Filter Builder Design Process

filterBuilder is a graphical interface that speeds up the filter design process.
