Design of fir filters by general interpolation

If the desired interpolation points are not uniformly spaced between 0 and then we can not use the DFT. We must take a different approach. Recall that for a Type I FIRfilter, A h M 2 n 0 M 1 h n M n For convenience, it is common to write this as A n 0 M a n n where h M a 0 and n 1 n N 1 h n a M n 2 . Note that there are M 1 parameters. Suppose it is desired that A interpolates a set of specified values: k 0 k M A k A k To obtain a Type I FIR filter satisfying these interpolation equations, one can set up a linear system of equations. k 0 k M n 0 M a n n k A k In matrix form, we have 1 0 2 0 M 0 1 1 2 1 M 1 1 M 2 M M M a 0 a 1 a M A 0 A 1 A M Once a n is found, the filter h n is formed as h n 1 2 a M a M 1 a 1 2 a 0 a 1 a M 1 a M


In the following example, we design a length 19 Type I FIR. Then M 9 and we have 10 parameters. We can therefore have 10 interpolation equations. We choose:

k k 0 0.1 0.2 0.3 0 k 3 A k 1
k k 0.5 0.6 0.7 0.8 0.8 1.0 4 k 9 A k 0
To solve this interpolation problem in Matlab, note that the matrix can be generated by a single multiplication of a columnvector and a row vector. This is done with the command C = cos(wk*[0:M]); where wk is a column vector containing the frequency points. To solve the linear system ofequations, we can use the Matlab backslash command.

N = 19; M = (N-1)/2;wk = [0 .1 .2 .3 .5 .6 .7 .8 .9 1]'*pi;Ak = [1 1 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 0]';C = cos(wk*[0:M]);a = C/Ak; h = (1/2)*[a([M:-1:1]+1); 2*a([0]+1); a(1:M]+1)];[A,w] = firamp(h,1);plot(w/pi,A,wk/pi,Ak,'o') title('A(\omega)')xlabel('\omega/\pi')

The general interpolation problem is much more flexible than the uniform interpolation problem that the DFT solves. Forexample, by leaving a gap between the pass-band and stop-band as in this example, the ripple near the band edge is reduced(but the transition between the pass- and stop-bands is not as sharp). The general interpolation problem also arises as asubproblem in the design of optimal minimax (or Chebyshev) FIR filters.

Linear-phase fir filters: pros and cons

FIR digital filters have several desirable properties.

  • They can have exactly linear phase.
  • They can not be unstable.
  • There are several very effective methods for designing linear-phase FIR digital filters.
On the other hand,
  • Linear-phase filters can have long delay between input and output.
  • If the phase need not be linear, then IIR filters can be more efficient.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
