How can I write a mtached filter in Matlab? I have the filter design and signal processing tool boxes.

If you have a signal, x, then the matched filter's coefficients is given by time reverse of x, i.e., x(end:-1:1). If your signal is complex, you also need to to use complex conjugate. You can then use it just as an FIR filter. For example,

>> x = ones(10,1); >> b = x(end:-1:1); >> y = filter(b,1,x);

Hii i was wondering what is the impulse response of matched filter here?I think it is related to b. Do you think if i want to select a specific sample number for b, i also need to change the length of input signal x?

How to apply matched filter if the signal is complex?

It's the same, use the `filter` function. The only difference is when you come up with the filtering coefficient, you need to add a conjugate, like

b = conj(x(end:-1:1))

To elaborate on Honglei's answer. If the signal you are trying to design a matched filter for, is x, then --

>> b = x(end-1:1); >> y = filter(b,1,x);

You should already have x.

Hi You can try the model given here
