Bandpass filter design specification object

The `fdesign.bandpass`

function returns a
`bandpass`

filter design specification object that contains
specifications for a filter such as passband frequency, stopband frequency, passband
ripple, and filter order. Use the `design`

function to design the filter from the filter design
specifications object.

For more control options, see Filter Design Procedure. For a complete workflow, see Design a Filter in Fdesign — Process Overview.

constructs a bandpass filter design specifications object with the following default
values: `bandpassSpecs`

= fdesign.bandpass

First stopband frequency set to 0.35.

First passband frequency set to 0.45.

Second passband frequency set to 0.55.

Second stopband frequency set to 0.65.

First stopband attenuation set to 60 dB.

Passband ripple set to 1dB.

Second stopband attenuation set to 60 dB.

constructs a bandpass filter specification object with a particular filter order,
stopband frequency, passband frequency, and other specification options. Indicate
the options you want to specify in the expression `bandpassSpecs`

= fdesign.bandpass(`spec`

,`value1,...,valueN`

)`spec`

. After
the expression, specify a value for each option. If you do not specify values after
the `spec`

argument, the function assumes the default
values.

provides the sample rate in Hz of the signal to be filtered. `bandpassSpecs`

= fdesign.bandpass(___,`Fs`

)`Fs`

must be specified as a scalar trailing the other numerical values provided. In this
case, all frequencies in the specifications are in Hz as well.

The design specification
`fdesign.bandpass('Fst1,Fp1,Fp2,Fst2,Ast1,Ap,Ast2',.4,.5,.6,.7,60,1,80)`

designs the same filter as
`fdesign.bandstop('Fst1,Fp1,Fp2,Fst2,Ast1,Ap,Ast2',1600,2000,2400,2800,60,1,80,8000)`

provides the units for the specified magnitude. `bandpassSpecs`

= fdesign.bandpass(___,`magunits`

)`magunits`

can be
one of the following: `'linear'`

, `'dB'`

, or
`'squared'`

. If this argument is omitted, the object assumes
the units of magnitude specification to be `'dB'`

. The magnitude
specifications are always converted and stored in decibels regardless of how they
were specified. If `Fs`

is provided, `magunits`

must follow `Fs`

in the input argument list.

Design a constrained-band FIR equiripple filter of order 100 with a passband of [1, 1.4] kHz. Both stopband attenuation values are constrained to 60 dB. The sample rate is 10 kHz.

Create a `bandpass`

filter design specification object using the `fdesign.bandpass`

function and specify these design parameters.

`bandpassSpecs = fdesign.bandpass('N,Fst1,Fp1,Fp2,Fst2,C',100,800,1e3,1.4e3,1.6e3,1e4);`

Constrain the two stopbands with a stopband attenuation of 60 dB.

bandpassSpecs.Stopband1Constrained = true; bandpassSpecs.Astop1 = 60; bandpassSpecs.Stopband2Constrained = true; bandpassSpecs.Astop2 = 60;

Design the bandpass filter using the `design`

function. The resulting filter is a `dsp.FIRFilter`

System object™. For details on how to apply this filter on streaming data, refer to `dsp.FIRFilter`

.

`bandpassFilt = design(bandpassSpecs,'Systemobject',true)`

bandpassFilt = dsp.FIRFilter with properties: Structure: 'Direct form' NumeratorSource: 'Property' Numerator: [1x101 double] InitialConditions: 0 Show all properties

Visualize the frequency response of the designed filter using `fvtool`

.

fvtool(bandpassFilt)

Measure the frequency response characteristics of the filter using `measure`

. The passband ripple is slightly over 2 dB. Because the design constrains both stopbands, you cannot constrain the passband ripple.

Use the `design`

.

bpFilter = design(bandpassSpecs,'butter','matchexactly','passband','SystemObject',true)

Bandpass filter a discrete-time sine wave signal which consists of three sinusoids at frequencies, 1 kHz, 10 kHz, and 15 kHz.

Design an FIR Equiripple bandpass filter by first creating a bandpass filter design specifications object, and then designing a filter using these specifications.

**Design Bandpass Filter**

Create a bandpass filter design specifications object using `fdesign.bandpass`

.

**Create Sinusoidal Signal**

Create a signal that is a sum of three sinusoids with frequencies at 1 kHz, 10 kHz, and 15 kHz. Initialize Spectrum Analyzer to view the original signal and the filtered signal.

Sine1 = dsp.SineWave('Frequency',1e3,'SampleRate',44.1e3,'SamplesPerFrame',4000); Sine2 = dsp.SineWave('Frequency',10e3,'SampleRate',44.1e3,'SamplesPerFrame',4000); Sine3 = dsp.SineWave('Frequency',15e3,'SampleRate',44.1e3,'SamplesPerFrame',4000); SpecAna = dsp.SpectrumAnalyzer('PlotAsTwoSidedSpectrum',false, ... 'SampleRate',Sine1.SampleRate, ... 'NumInputPorts',2,... 'ShowLegend',true, ... 'YLimits',[-240,45]); SpecAna.ChannelNames = {'Original noisy signal','Bandpass filtered signal'};

**Filter Sinusoidal Signal**

Filter the sinusoidal signal using the bandpass filter that has been designed. View the original signal and the filtered signal in the Spectrum Analyzer. The tone at 1 kHz is filtered out and attenuated. The tone at 10 kHz is unaffected, and the tone at 15 kHz is mildly attenuated because it appears in the transition band of the filter.
