Convert digital filter to transfer function



[num,den] = tf(d) converts a digital filter, d, to numerator and denominator vectors.

Design a 6th-order highpass FIR filter with a passband frequency of 75 kHz and a passband ripple of 0.2 dB. Specify a sample rate of 200 kHz. Compute the coefficients of the equivalent transfer function.

hpFilt = designfilt('highpassiir','FilterOrder',6, ...
         'PassbandFrequency',75e3,'PassbandRipple',0.2, ...
[b,a] = tf(hpFilt)

Input Arguments

Digital filter, specified as a digitalFilter object. Use designfilt to generate a digital filter based on frequency-response specifications.

Example: d = designfilt('lowpassiir','FilterOrder',3,'HalfPowerFrequency',0.5) specifies a third-order Butterworth filter with normalized 3 dB frequency 0.5π rad/sample.

Output Arguments
