Hi,
Ah, you mean "time reversal". That's a *BIG*
difference from the way you worded your question in
your earlier post.
Andor already answered your question by
saying you should review MATLAB's "filtfilt()"
function. Look in the 'Signal Processing Toolbox'
manual. It'll answer all your questions.
Also, check out the thread:

Search http://www.groops.google.com for a recent thread on this subject.
Be aware that this is difficult in quasi real time.

well, it *is* an FIR. what you mean be "structure" might affect my
answer.
the term "Truncated IIR" is from Julius Smith as referened by Peter
below.
a TIIR is an FIR that has some structure that would remind one of an
IIR.
the simplest example of a TIIR is the one of a moving average filter.
there
are two ways of implementing it. one is with the straight forward FIR
structure in which all coefs are 1/N (N is the number of samples getting
averaged). the other structure is with a digital integrator but where
the
input has a delay line and adder that will subtract x[n-N] from the
integrator input.
not every TIIR is linear phase. some of them require cascading with one
that has the opposite sense of decay or it requires segmentation,
time-reversing the segment, TIIRing with an identical filter, flipping
the
result back around in time, and overlap-adding the result. it's a mess,
but
it's how you make a nearly IIR filter act with linear phase in a
real-time
app.

>> For that matter, why would anyone want to make a linear phase IIR?

i guess so that all frequencies are delayed equally.

>> Isn't it way easier to stick with the good ol' FIR?

usually it is. but if the number of taps are large, it's not always
cheaper
than the Truncated IIR approach.

can you guys down-under see Mars as well as us guys? it's even a little
cloudy and i can see it really well.

sir,
iam trying to implement Linear phase IIR filter. To acheieve Linear
phase in IIR filter we have the main technique of Time reversion of
the section. If anyone is doing in the same please reply.
thanks in advance.
