# Multirate Filtering: Filter-Design Exercise in MATLAB (ECE 320 specific)

Module by: Mark Butala. E-mail the author

Summary: (Blank Abstract)

## Filter-Design Exercise

Using the zero-placement method, design the FIR filters for the multirate system in Multirate Filtering: Introduction. Recall that the z z-transform of a length- N N FIR filter is a polynomial in z-1 z -1 , and that this polynomial can be factored into N1 N 1 roots.

Hz= h 0 + h 1 z-1+ h 2 z-2+=( z 1 z-1)( z 2 z-1)( z 3 z-1) H z h 0 h 1 z -1 h 2 z -2 z 1 z -1 z 2 z -1 z 3 z -1

Use this relation to design a low-pass filter (for the anti-aliasing and anti-imaging filters of the multirate system) by placing twelve complex zeros on the unit circle at ±3π8 ± 3 8 , ±π2 ± 2 , ±5π8 ± 5 8 , ±3π4 ± 3 4 , ±7π8 ± 7 8 , and ±π ± . This filter that you have just designed will serve for both FIR 1 and FIR 3. For filter FIR 2 (operating at the decimated rate), use four equally-spaced zeros on the unit circle located at ±π4 ± 4 and ±3π4 ± 3 4 . Be sure to adjust the resulting filter coefficients to ensure that the gain does not exceed one at any frequency.

Design your filters by writing a MATLAB script to compute the filter coefficients from the given zero locations. The MATLAB function poly is very useful for this; type help poly in MATLAB for details.

Once you have determined the coefficients of the filters, use MATLAB function freqz to plot the frequency responses. You will find that the frequency response of these filters has a large gain. Adjust the resulting filter coefficients to ensure that the largest frequency gain is less than or equal to one by dividing the coefficients by an appropriate value. Do the frequency responses match your expectations based on the locations of the zeros in the z-plane?

At the beginning of the lab you should be prepared to show the TA your DTFT sketches of Wω W ω and Yω Y ω as well as the frequency response plots of your designed filters.

### What is an EPUB file?

EPUB is an electronic book format that can be read on a variety of mobile devices.

My Favorites (?)

'My Favorites' is a special kind of lens which you can use to bookmark modules and collections. 'My Favorites' can only be seen by you, and collections saved in 'My Favorites' can remember the last module you were on. You need an account to use 'My Favorites'.

#### Definition of a lens

##### Lenses

A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

##### What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

##### Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

##### What are tags?

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.
