Dear all
i have a digital filter H(Z)=1/32*(1-z^-6)^2 /(1-z^-1)^2
with sampling rate being 200Hz, the filter has a rather loe cutoff frequency of
fc Hz and introduces a delay of 5 sample or 25ms.this filter provides an
attenuation greater than 25dB at 60Hz,and effectively suppresses power-line
interference,if present.

i make this filter in MATLAB with command:
y(n) = 2*y(n-1)-y(n-2)+1/32*(x(n)-2*x(n-6)+x(n-12));
now how can i change this filter to give same answer at other sampling rate like
500Hz, which the cutoff 11Hz and 25dB at 60Hz dont change

Thanks in advance
emilly

This post is in
response to a private email I got,
but I thought maybe others would like to know
the
answer:

Mark,

I thought all recursive filters r IIR?can u
please
explain..i am still new to DSP..

Thanx,

Reshma

Reshma,

The two terms are often thought to be equivalent, but
they
are not. All IIR filters are
recursive,
but not all recursive filters are IIR. "Recursive" refers to the
use of
previous output samples or intermediate variables in the filter
difference
equation, similar to feedback in
analog
designs. "Non-recursive" means only current and previous input
samples
are used. "Infinite Impulse Response" (IIR) means that the impulse
response
never reaches a non-zero steady state (at least with infinite
precision
arithmetic). This is often the case with recursive filters, but not
always. "Finite Impulse
Response" means that
the impulse response has only a finite number of
non-zero
samples.

In the particular case Emilly presented, the filter is
an
FIR, but because the impulse response is just a simple triangle, it can
be
realized as a recursive filter. To do this, just take the
second-derivative
(second-difference, actually) of the triangle, giving the
(1 -z^-N)^2
numerator in the Z-transform, and then integrate twice, giving the
denominator.
You can use this trick to implement a piece-wise-linear
approximation of a
more general impulse response, and reduce the amount of
computation by using
recursion (notice there are no multiplications except by 2
and 1/32, which are
just binary shifts).

This sort of thing was a big deal back when DSP was
done on
slow-multiplying CPUs or limited hardware implementations ( I think the Pan-Tompkins alg was implemented
on
one of the earliest 8086 PCs). For today's DSP processors,
there's
probably no reason to do this, since they are optimized for
non-recursive FIR
filter implementation.

Emilly,

I guess you're doing some work with ECG based on
your
sample rate. I think I recognize the filter, too. Is it from Willis
Tompkins
book ? Anyway, what you want to do to convert the filter to a different
sample
rate without changing its absolute cutoff freq., etc. is to interpolate
the
filter's impulse response by a 500/200 ratio. This may look difficult but
it's
actually quite easy in this case. This particular filter is recursive but
is
not an IIR, its impulse response is actually just a triangle with
2N-1
non-zero samples, where N=6. It's really an FIR, but
recursive. To
interpolate, all you need to do is change N to 6*500/200 =
15. The 1/32 gain
adjustment needs to change, too. I'll leave that to
you.

BTW, if you really wanted to suppress 60 Hz,
this
isn't the best filter, since it doesn't have a zero at or near 60 Hz
(well,
66.7 Hz isn't very near).
