I am doing C programming for low pass filtering time series signal and then downsampling the signal. Is there any available C source code for dummies? For instance, given filter coefficients, h[n], and signal x[numberofSamples], how shall I get the filtered signal ?? Thanks

If it's a FIR then you just take the last N samples and multiply them sample-for-sample by the filter coefficients, so for sample n you'd use: out[n] = sum from {k = max(0, n - N)} to n {x[n - k] * h[k]} This article _may_ clear things up. Although it's written more for control system design it does go into the implementation of IIR filters: http://www.wescottdesign.com/articles/zTransform/z-transforms.html. -- Tim Wescott Wescott Design Services http://www.wescottdesign.com Posting from Google?

I have the C++ code for convolution : iCoefficients can be the FIR / IIR Coefficients, iIndex is the Index number of the vector that is being filtered. vec is the typedef for std::vector<double> For an IIR filter your code would look like: filteredData[i] = Convolution(i,input,BCoefficients)-Convolution(i,filteredData,ACoefficients); double Convolution(int iIndex, vec& iData, vec& iCoefficients) /**< answer = conv(signal, filtercoefficients)*/ { double answer = 0; for(int l=0; l<iCoefficients.size();l++) { if((iIndex-l-1)>=0) { answer+= iData(iIndex-l-1)*iCoefficients(l); } else { answer+=0.0; } } return answer; } As for calculating the coefficients of a low pass filter, try using the billinear transform of if you need fast results, calculate the coefficients in MATLAB and save them in your code.
