## Scilab IIR filter, Bode plot trouble

Dear Comp.DSP, I am using Scilab 5.3.0 (64-bit) to experiment with digital IIR filter design. When I create a Bode plot of the filter response, the magnitudes don't appear to make sense. I created a low pass filter, and plotted the magnitudes on a linear scale, using the frmag() function. The response for the passband frequencies was at 1.0, as expected. In a Bode plot of the same function, ...

## Scilab question: cat takes too long w/ large amounts of data, what's an alternative function?

In Scilab, I'm using cat in a for loop to concatenate column matrices produced by the for loop. The problem is that since i'm working with audio data, the matrices are long, and cat takes longer every time the for loop runs because it's handling more data each time the for loop runs. Are there any alternative functions that i could use instead of cat, which will be faster? Perhaps a funct...

Matlab, Scilab, Mathematica, C#, C++, assembler, Forth, Java, and Fortran are implementation details. Ignore them at first. If you don't want to use somebody else's library, start by learning exactly what the program needs to accomplish. If it were a hardware project, you would begin with a block diagram. Jerry

Instead of doing productive work, I just spent a few enjoyable minutes with Scilab finding approximations to pi of the form m/n. Because I'm posting to a couple of nerd groups, I can be confident that most of you probably know 22/7 off the tops of your heads. What interested me is how spotty things are -- after 22/7, the error drops for a bit until you get down to 355/113 (which, if yo...

I'm working on yet another article, and as usual I'm asking the community for help. This is a departure for me in that I'm planning on reviewing web-based resources for DSP optimization and profiling -- yet I'm not a big one for using anything other than first principals plus a math package like SciLab. I know I've seen suggestions for filter packages and other things fly by -- what ...

Hi there, I'm trying different alternatives in order to choose a software for scientific calculation, expecially for the resulution of (simple) DSP problems. Currently I'm using Scilab. Anyway I'd like to learn to use SciPy too bt I wasn't able to find any useful "for-dummies" documentation about DSP in SciPy. Do you have any interesting link? Thanks in advance! Ciao, Giulio ...

There have occasionally been threads here on visual presentation of displaying time sequential spectra. Spectrograms (gray scale or color) are very popular. [e.g. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Praat-spectrogram-tatata.png ] I sat for many hours in front of RF spectrum analyzers, so I'm not oriented to that format. Scilab is free and has reasonable graphics, so I wrote my own. ...

I originally posted this to the Scilab group assuming i just had a syntax error. While waiting for a response, I started wondering if I was also headed for some DSP specific pitfalls. Comments welcome. *********** I know I'm making a basic (no pun intended) error. But i just can not find the proper syntax. My code is: sheets = readxls('E:\parasitic.xls') s1=sheets(1); ...

{also posted to a Linux group} In the "real world", is there a difference for an average/typical user. I'm contemplating the move from Windows to Linux. Coward that I am, I'm considering separate hardware as testbed. I spend most of my time in text editing and web surfing - doubt any advantage there. My other interest include Scilab, Scioslab, and gnuplot. I would run and display disp...

I'm working on a nav problem, and I'm looking for some computational efficiencies. I'm carrying position and velocity information in earth-centered, earth- fixed coordinates, and I have a need to do some post-processing in north- east-down coordinates. I'm using Scilab's QR decomposition at the moment. I can do this decomposition on a 3 x 2 matrix with the position vector and the eart...

hi, This is my first filter implementation and is made in Scilab, also the design of the 3ord Chebyshev Type I IIR Filter (with the iir function). I actually have 3 filters, so i can use them as an equalizer for an audio application. I´m using Direct Form I Realization. Since I have to implement this on a 24bit Fixed-Point DSP I had to scale my coefficients by a factor of 256 (same as shifting...
