Constrained-least-squares FIR multiband filter design
Constrained Least-Squares Lowpass Filter
Design a 150th-order lowpass filter with a normalized cutoff frequency of rad/sample. Specify a maximum absolute error of 0.02 in the passband and 0.01 in the stopband. Display the design error and magnitude responses of the filter. The bound violations denote the iterations of the procedure as the design converges.
n = 150; f = [0 0.4 1]; a = [1 0]; up = [1.02 0.01]; lo = [0.98 -0.01]; b = fircls(n,f,a,up,lo,"both");
Bound Violation = 0.0788344298966 Bound Violation = 0.0096137744998 Bound Violation = 0.0005681345753 Bound Violation = 0.0000051519942 Bound Violation = 0.0000000348656 Bound Violation = 0.0000000006231
n — Filter order
real positive scalar
Filter order, specified as a real positive scalar.
fircls function always uses an even filter order for
configurations with a passband at the Nyquist frequency (that is, highpass and
bandstop filters). This is because for odd orders, the frequency response at the
Nyquist frequency is necessarily 0. If you specify an odd-valued
fircls increments it by 1.
f — Normalized frequency points
Normalized frequency points, specified as a real-valued vector. The transition
frequencies are in the range [0, 1], where 1 corresponds to the Nyquist frequency. The
first point of
f must be
0 and the last point
1. The frequencies must be in increasing order.
amp — Piecewise-constant desired amplitude
Piecewise-constant desired amplitude of the frequency response, specified as a
real-valued vector. The length of
amp is equal to the number of
bands in the response,
up — Upper bounds
Upper bounds for the frequency response in each band, specified as a real-valued
vector with the same length as
lo — Lower bounds
Lower bounds for the frequency response in each band, specified as a real-valued
vector with the same length as
Normally, the lower value in the stopband is specified as negative. By setting
lo equal to
0 in the stopbands, a
nonnegative frequency response amplitude is obtained. Such filters are spectrally
factored to obtain minimum phase filters.
"design_flag" — Filter design display
Filter design display, specified as one of these:
"trace"— View a textual display of the design error at each iteration step.
"plots"— View a collection of plots showing the full-band magnitude response of the filter and a zoomed view of the magnitude response in each sub-band. All plots are updated at each iteration step. The O's on the plot are the estimated extremals of the new iteration and the X's are the estimated extremals of the previous iteration, where the extremals are the peaks (maximum and minimum) of the filter ripples. Only ripples that have a corresponding O and X are made equal.
"both"— View both a textual display and plots.
fircls function uses an iterative least-squares algorithm to obtain
an equiripple response. The algorithm is a multiple exchange algorithm that uses Lagrange
multipliers and Kuhn-Tucker conditions on each iteration.
