hello i am looking for the easiest way to calculate 1/3 octave levels from an acquired signal sampled at a high rate (usually 350kHz). as i understand it, the usual method is to create a bunch of butterworth filters and calculate the RMS level in each band, decimating occasionally to increase resolution at lower frequencies. my question is: can the 1/3 octave levels be accurately cal...

Hello I am an engineering student, relatively new with filters and matlab, I need to design a bandpass butterwoth filter with 2 bands in matlab using the buttord function. I know how to do it for just one band and iwas trying to apply the same approach using 2 bands but i did not work. My questions are: Do i have to design 2 separated bandpass filters and combine them or is there a way do it toget...

Every article I see regarding IIR filter design seems to make the subject far more complicated than it needs to be.

Hi, I'm trying to design a simple IIR lowpass filter with the following specs: fs = 2.4kHz fc = 150Hz order = 3 or 4 The most important aspect is that the ringing (overshoot) shouldn't be higher than about 3%. When using a 3rd order Butterworth, I get about 9% overshoot, which is too much. Someone hinted my that a Bessel filter would be better suited. This program is a good start http:...

Hi, I am modelling the physical layer of an 802.11 transmitter (to implement it into an FPGA). At this moment I want to design the digital filter responsible of pulse shaping (before the DAC). My doubts are: 1. FIR or IIR filter?, why?. 2. For each option (FIR or IIR) there are different types of filters (FIR: Raised_cos_Barlett, Raised_cos_Blackmann, etc, ... or IIR: Butterworth, Cheby...

Any techniques for obtaining a 'best fit' digital filter (1st choice FIR, 2nd choice IIR) for an analog filter. The analog filter specifications be from an equation (e.g. butterworth etc) or a set of measured frequency response values. This will allow me to simulate digitally an analog process.

For those interested in filter design, I want to introduce you to the Adjustable Gauss Polynomial. I am not selling anything here, and I would imagine you could implement this in MatLab if you wanted to. A couple of years ago I was experimenting with polynomial filters such as the Butterworth. My goal was to find a polynomial that was more compatible with digital filter design. One thing I t...

For a high order filter, if I make Wn too small, I get an inexplicable gain term on the resulting filter. I am trying to use zpk form and then go to second orders sections.

Hi, My simulations show that having IIR low pass filter to simulate baseband model of a communication systems will introduce inter symbol interference (ISI). regardless the filter type (Butterworth, Cheby, Elliptic,...) all gives a significant ISI.

Hi, I'm trying to design a high-pass filter to filter out DC component (bias) from a noisy accelerometer measurement. I've tried to go with a second order Butterworth filter with coefficients from http://www-users.cs.york.ac.uk/~fisher/mkfilter/trad.html. The filtering works just fine, but the filter has a non-linear phase shift, so I don't know if that's the right choice. I'd also like to go w...
