The toolbox includes algorithms for resampling, smoothing, and synchronizing signals, designing and analyzing filters, estimating power spectra, and measuring peaks, bandwidth, and distortion. The toolbox also includes parametric and linear predictive modeling algorithms.You can use Signal Processing Toolbox to analyze and compare signals in time, frequency, and time-frequency domains, identify patterns and trends, extract features, and develop and validate custom algorithms to gain insight into your data. Key Features • Signal transforms including fast Fourier transform (FFT), short-time Fourier transform (STFT), and Hilbert transform • FIR and IIR filter design and analysis • Measurements such as transition and pulse metrics, band power, bandwidth, and distortion • Power spectrum estimation algorithms and data windowing functions • Statistical signal measurements such as autocorrelation and cross-correlation • Linear prediction and parametric time series modeling • Waveform and pulse generation and data resampling functions 1-2 2 Basic Signal Processing Concepts • “Representing Signals” on page 2-2 • “Waveform Generation: Time Vectors and Sinusoids” on page 2-4 • “Impulse, Step, and Ramp Functions” on page 2-5 • “Multichannel Signals” on page 2-6 • “Common Periodic Waveforms” on page 2-7 • “Common Aperiodic Waveforms” on page 2-9 • “The pulstran Function” on page 2-11 • “The Sinc Function” on page 2-13 • “The Dirichlet Function” on page 2-15 • “Working with Data” on page 2-17 • “Selected Bibliography” on page 2-18 2 Basic Signal Processing Concepts Representing Signals In this section... “Numeric Arrays” on page 2-2 “Vector Representation” on page 2-2 Numeric Arrays The central data construct in the MATLAB environment is the numeric array, an ordered collection of real or complex numeric data with two or more dimensions. The basic data objects of signal processing (one-dimensional signals or sequences, multichannel signals, and two-dimensional signals) are all naturally suited to array representation. Vector Representation MATLAB represents ordinary one-dimensional sampled data signals, or sequences, as vectors. Vectors are 1-by-n or n-by-1 arrays, where n is the number of samples in the sequence. One way to introduce a sequence is to enter it as a list of elements at the command prompt. The statement x = [4 3 7 -9 1]; creates a simple five-element real sequence in a row vector. Transposition turns the sequence into a column vector x = x'; x = 4 3 7 -9 1 Column orientation is preferable for single channel signals because it extends naturally to the multichannel case. For multichannel data, each column of a matrix represents one channel. Each row of such a matrix then corresponds to a sample point. A three-channel signal that consists of x, 2x, and x/π is y = [x 2*x x/pi] 2-2 Representing Signals y = 4.0000 3.0000 7.0000 -9.0000 1.0000 8.0000 6.0000 14.0000 -18.0000 2.0000 1.2732 0.9549 2.2282 -2.8648 0.3183 If the sequence has complex-valued elements, the transpose operator takes the conjugate of the sequence elements. To transform a complex-valued row vector into a column vector without taking conjugates, use the .' or non-conjugate transpose: x=[1-i 3+i 2+3*i 4-2*i]; % 1-by-4 vector x=x.'; % 4-by-1 vector 2-3 2 Basic Signal Processing Concepts Waveform Generation: Time Vectors and Sinusoids Most toolbox functions require you to begin with a vector representing a time base. Consider generating data with a 1000 Hz sample frequency, for example. An appropriate time vector is t = (0:0.001:1)'; where the MATLAB colon operator creates a 1001-element row vector that represents time running from 0 to 1 s in steps of 1 ms. The transpose operator (') changes the row vector into a column; the semicolon (;) tells MATLAB to compute, but not display the result. Given t, you can create a sample signal y consisting of two sinusoids, one at 50 Hz and one at 120 Hz with twice the amplitude. y = sin(2*pi*50*t) + 2*sin(2*pi*120*t); The new variable y, formed from vector t, is also 1001 elements long. You can add normally distributed white noise to the signal and plot the first 50 points using rng default; yn = y + 0.5*randn(size(t)); plot(t(1:50),yn(1:50)) 2-4 Impulse, Step, and Ramp Functions Impulse, Step, and Ramp Functions Since MATLAB is a programming language, an endless variety of different signals is possible. Here are some statements that generate several commonly used sequences, including the unit impulse, unit step, and unit ramp functions: t = (0:0.001:1)'; imp = [1; zeros(99,1)]; unit_step = ones(100,1); ramp_sig = t; quad_sig = t.^2; sq_wave = square(4*pi*t); % % % % % Impulse Step (with 0 initial cond.) Ramp Quadratic Square wave with period 0.5 All of these sequences are column vectors. The last three inherit their shapes from t. 2-5 2 Basic Signal Processing Concepts Multichannel Signals Use standard MATLAB array syntax to work with multichannel signals. For example, a multichannel signal consisting of the last three signals generated above is z = [ramp_sig quad_sig sq_wave]; You can generate a multichannel unit sample function using the outer product operator. For example, a six-element column vector whose first element is one, and whose remaining five elements are zeros, is a = [1 zeros(1,5)]'; To duplicate column vector a into a matrix without performing any multiplication, use the MATLAB colon operator and the ones function: c = a(:,ones(1,3)); 2-6 Common Periodic Waveforms Common Periodic Waveforms The toolbox provides functions for generating widely used periodic waveforms: • sawtooth generates a sawtooth wave with peaks at ±1 and a period of 2π. An optional width parameter specifies a fractional multiple of 2π at which the signal's maximum occurs. • square generates a square wave with a period of 2π. An optional parameter specifies duty cycle, the percent of the period for which the signal is positive. To generate 1.5 s of a 50 Hz sawtooth wave with a sample rate of 10 kHz and plot 0.2 s of the generated waveform, use fs = 10000; t = 0:1/fs:1.5; x = sawtooth(2*pi*50*t); plot(t,x) axis([0 0.2 -1 1]) 2-7 2 2-8 Basic Signal Processing Concepts Common Aperiodic Waveforms Common Aperiodic Waveforms The toolbox also provides functions for generating several widely used aperiodic waveforms: • gauspuls generates a Gaussian-modulated sinusoidal pulse with a specified time, center frequency, and fractional bandwidth. Optional parameters return in-phase and quadrature pulses, the RF signal envelope, and the cutoff time for the trailing pulse envelope. • chirp generates a linear, log, or quadratic swept-frequency cosine signal. An optional parameter specifies alternative sweep methods. An optional parameter, phi, allows initial phase to be specified in degrees. To compute 2 seconds of a linear chirp signal with a sample rate of 1 kHz that starts at DC and crosses 150 Hz at 1 second, use: t = 0:1/1000:2; y = chirp(t,0,1,150); To plot the spectrogram, use: spectrogram(y,256,250,256,1000,'yaxis') 2-9 2 Basic Signal Processing Concepts 2-10 The pulstran Function The pulstran Function The pulstran function generates pulse trains from either continuous or sampled prototype pulses. The following example generates a pulse train consisting of the sum of multiple delayed interpolations of a Gaussian pulse. The pulse train is defined to have a sample rate of 50 kHz, a pulse train length of 10 ms, and a pulse repetition rate of 1 kHz; D specifies the delay to each pulse repetition in column 1 and an optional attenuation for each repetition in column 2. The pulse train is constructed by passing the name of the gauspuls function to pulstran, along with additional parameters that specify a 10 kHz Gaussian pulse with 50% bandwidth: T = 0:1/50E3:10E-3; D = [0:1/1E3:10E-3;0.8.^(0:10)]'; Y = pulstran(T,D,'gauspuls',10E3,0.5); plot(T,Y) 2-11 2 Basic Signal Processing Concepts 2-12 The Sinc Function The Sinc Function The sinc function computes the mathematical sinc function for an input vector or matrix x. Viewed as a function of time, or space, the sinc function is the inverse Fourier transform of the rectangular pulse in frequency centered at zero of width 2π and height 1. The following equation defines the sinc function: sin p x 1 p jw x = e dw . 2p -p px Ú The sinc function has a value of 1 when x is equal to zero, and a value of sin p x px for all other elements of x. To plot the sinc function for a linearly spaced vector with values ranging from –5 to 5, use the following commands: x = linspace(-5,5); y = sinc(x); plot(x,y) 2-13 2 Basic Signal Processing Concepts 2-14 The Dirichlet Function The Dirichlet Function The toolbox function diric computes the Dirichlet function, sometimes called the periodic sinc or aliased sinc function, for an input vector or matrix x. The Dirichlet function, D(x) is: Ï sin( Nx / 2) , x π 2p k, k = 0, ±1, ±2, ±3,... Ô D( x) = Ì N sin( x / 2) Ô( -1)k( N -1) , x = 2p k, k = 0, ± 1, ±2, ±3,... Ó where N is a user-specified positive integer. For N odd, the Dirichlet function has a period of 2π; for N even, its period is 4π. The magnitude of this function is (1/N) times the magnitude of the discrete-time Fourier transform of the N-point rectangular window. To plot the Dirichlet function over the range 0 to 4π for N = 7 and N = 8, use x = linspace(0,4*pi,300); subplot(2,1,1) plot(x,diric(x,7)) axis tight title('n = 7') subplot(2,1,2) plot(x,diric(x,8)) axis tight title('n = 8') 2-15 2 Basic Signal Processing Concepts 2-16 Working with Data Working with Data Data Precision All Signal Processing Toolbox functions accept double-precision inputs. If you input single-precision floating-point or integer data types, you should not expect to receive correct results and in many cases, an error will occur. DSP System Toolbox™ and FixedPoint Designer™ products enable single-precision floating-point and fixed-point support for most dfilt structures. 2-17 2 Basic Signal Processing Concepts Selected Bibliography Algorithm development for Signal Processing Toolbox functions has drawn heavily upon the references listed below.

Advanced capabilities are available if your installation additionally includes the DSP System Toolbox license. You can verify the presence of both toolboxes by typing ver at the command prompt. Filter design through user-defined specifications is the core of the fdesign approach. This specification-centric approach places less emphasis on the choice of specific filter algorithms, and more emphasis on performance during the design a good working filter. For example, you can take a given set of design parameters for the filter, such as a stopband frequency, a passband frequency, and a stopband attenuation, and— using these parameters— design a specification object for the filter. You can then implement the filter using this specification object. Using this approach, it is also possible to compare different algorithms as applied to a set of specifications. There are two distinct objects involved in filter design: • Specification Object — Captures the required design parameters of a filter • Implementation Object — Describes the designed filter; includes the array of coefficients and the filter structure The distinction between these two objects is at the core of the filter design methodology. The basic attributes of each of these objects are outlined in the following table. Specification Object Implementation Object High-level specification Filter coefficients Algorithmic properties Filter structure You can run the code in the following examples from the Help browser (select the code, right-click the selection, and choose Evaluate Selection from the context menu), or you can enter the code on the MATLAB command line. Before you begin this example, start MATLAB and verify that you have installed the Signal Processing Toolbox software. If you wish to access the full functionality of fdesign and filterbuilder, you should additionally obtain the DSP System Toolbox software. You can verify the presence of these products by typing ver at the command prompt. 3-2 Design a Filter Using fdesign Design a Filter Using fdesign Use the following two steps to design a simple filter. 1 Create a filter specification object. 2 Design your filter. Design a Filter in Two Steps Assume that you want to design a bandpass filter. Typically a bandpass filter is defined as shown in the following figure. In this example, a sampling frequency of Fs = 48 kHz is used. This bandpass filter has the following specifications, specified here using MATLAB code: A_stop1 = 60; % Attenuation in the first stopband = 60 dB F_stop1 = 8400; % Edge of the stopband = 8400 Hz F_pass1 = 10800; % Edge of the passband = 10800 Hz F_pass2 = 15600; % Closing edge of the passband = 15600 Hz F_stop2 = 18000; % Edge of the second stopband = 18000 Hz A_stop2 = 60; % Attenuation in the second stopband = 60 dB A_pass = 1; % Amount of ripple allowed in the passband = 1 dB In the following two steps, these specifications are passed to the fdesign.bandpass method as parameters. Step 1 3-3 3 Design a Filter with fdesign and filterbuilder To create a filter specification object, evaluate the following code at the MATLAB prompt: d = fdesign.bandpass Now, pass the filter specifications that correspond to the default Specification — fst1,fp1,fp2,fst2,ast1,ap,ast2. This example adds fs as the final input argument to specify the sampling frequency of 48 kHz. >> BandPassSpecObj = ... fdesign.bandpass('Fst1,Fp1,Fp2,Fst2,Ast1,Ap,Ast2', ... F_stop1, F_pass1, F_pass2, F_stop2, A_stop1, A_pass, ... A_stop2, 48000) Note: The order of the filter is not specified, allowing a degree of freedom for the algorithm design in order to achieve the specification. The design will be a minimum order design. The specification parameters, such as Fstop1, are all given default values when none are provided. You can change the values of the specification parameters after the filter specification object has been created. For example, if there are two values that need to be changed, Fpass2 and Fstop2, use the set command, which takes the object first, and then the parameter value pairs. Evaluate the following code at the MATLAB prompt: >> set(BandPassSpecObj, 'Fpass2', 15800, 'Fstop2', 18400) BandPassSpecObj is the new filter specification object which contains all the required design parameters, including the filter type. You may also change parameter values in filter specification objects by accessing them as if they were elements in a struct array. >> BandPassSpecObj.Fpass2=15800; Step 2 Design the filter by using the design command. You can access the design methods available for you specification object by calling the designmethods function. For example, in this case, you can execute the command >> designmethods(BandPassSpecObj) 3-4 Design a Filter Using fdesign Design Methods for class fdesign.bandpass (Fst1,Fp1,Fp2,Fst2,Ast1,Ap,Ast2): butter cheby1 cheby2 ellip equiripple kaiserwin After choosing a design method use, you can evaluate the following at the MATLAB prompt (this example assumes you've chosen 'equiripple'): >> BandPassFilt = design(BandPassSpecObj, 'equiripple') BandPassFilt = FilterStructure: Arithmetic: Numerator: PersistentMemory: 'Direct-Form FIR' 'double' [1x44 double] false If you have the DSP System Toolbox installed, you can also design your filter with a filter System object™. To create a filter System object with the same specification object BandPassSpecObj, you can execute the commands >> designmethods(BandPassSpecObj,... 'SystemObject',true) Design Methods that support System objects for class fdesign.bandpass (Fst1,Fp1,Fp2,Fst2,Ast1,Ap,Ast2): butter cheby1 cheby2 ellip equiripple kaiserwin 3-5 3 Design a Filter with fdesign and filterbuilder >> BandPassFiltSysObj = design(BandPassSpecObj,... 'equiripple','SystemObject',true) System: dsp.FIRFilter Properties: Structure: NumeratorSource: Numerator: InitialConditions: FrameBasedProcessing: 'Direct form' 'Property' [1x44 double] 0 true Show fixed-point properties Available design methods and design options for filter System objects are not necessarily the same as those for filter objects. Note: If you do not specify a design method, a default method will be used. For example, you can execute the command >> BandPassFilt = design(BandPassSpecObj) BandPassFilt = FilterStructure: Arithmetic: Numerator: PersistentMemory: 'Direct-Form FIR' 'double' [1x44 double] false and a design method will be selected automatically. To check your work, you can plot the filter magnitude response using the Filter Visualization tool. Verify that all the design parameters are met: >> fvtool(BandPassFilt) %plot the filter magnitude response If you have the DSP System Toolbox installed, the Filter Visualization tool produces the following figure with the dashed red lines indicating the transition bands and unity gain (0 in dB) over the passband. 3-6 Design a Filter Using fdesign 3-7 3 Design a Filter with fdesign and filterbuilder Design a Filter Using filterbuilder Filterbuilder presents the option of designing a filter using a GUI dialog box as opposed to the command line instructions. You can use Filterbuilder to design the same bandpass filter designed in the previous section, “Design a Filter Using fdesign” on page 3-3 Design a Simple Filter in Filterbuilder To design the filter using the Filterbuilder GUI: 1 Type the following at the MATLAB prompt: filterbuilder 2 Select Bandpass filter response from the list in the dialog box, and hit the OK button. 3 Enter the correct frequencies for Fpass2 and Fstop2, then click OK. Here the specification uses normalized frequency, so that the passband and stopband edges are expressed as a fraction of the Nyquist frequency (in this case, 48/2 kHz). The following message appears at the MATLAB prompt: The variable 'Hbp' has been exported to the command window. If you display the Workspace tab, you see the object Hbp has been placed on your workspace. 4 To check your work, plot the filter magnitude response using the Filter Visualization tool. Verify that all the design parameters are met: fvtool(Hbp) %plot the filter magnitude response 3-8 Design a Filter Using filterbuilder Note that the dashed red lines on the preceding figure will only appear if you are using the DSP System Toolbox software. 3-9 4 Filter Design with the FDATool GUI • “Introduction” on page 4-2 • “Designing the Filter” on page 4-3 • “Analyzing the Filter” on page 4-7 • “Designing Additional Filters” on page 4-9 • “Viewing and Annotating the Filter” on page 4-10 • “Exporting Filters from FDATool” on page 4-16 • “Designing Filters Using Command Line Functions” on page 4-20 4 Filter Design with the FDATool GUI Introduction This section describes how to graphically design and implement digital filters using the Signal Processing Toolbox FDATool GUI. Filter design is the process of creating the filter coefficients to meet specific frequency specifications. Filter implementation involves choosing and applying a particular filter structure to those coefficients. Only after both design and implementation have been performed can your data be filtered. This section includes a brief discussion of applying the completed filter design and filter implementation using MATLAB command line functions, such as filter. 4-2 Designing the Filter Designing the Filter This section is a step-by-step introduction to using the Filter Design and Analysis Tool (FDATool) to design an octave-band filter. An octave is the interval between two frequencies having a ratio of 2:1. An octave-band filter is a bandpass filter with high cutoff frequency approximately twice that of the low cutoff frequency. The class of an octave filter is determined by its allowable passband ripple and its stopband attenuation. Refer to the ANSI S1.11–2004 standard for more information. 1 Start FDATool from the MATLAB command line. fdatool The FDATool dialog opens with a default filter. Its filter information is summarized in the upper left (Current Filter Information) and its filter specifications are depicted in the upper right. In addition to displaying filter specification, this upper right pane displays filter responses and filter coefficients. The bottom half of FDATool shows the Filter Design panel, where you specify the filter parameters. Other panels, such as Import filter from workspace and Pole/Zero Editor, which you access with the buttons on the lower left, are also displayed in this area. If you have other products installed, you may see additional buttons. 4-3 4 Filter Design with the FDATool GUI Note that when you open FDATool, Design Filter is not enabled. You must make a change to the default filter design in order to enable Design Filter. This is true each time you want to change the filter design. Changes to radio button items or drop down menu items such as those under Response Type or Filter Order enable Design Filter immediately.

The data tip shows the frequency and magnitude at that point. 3 Close FVTool by selecting File > Close. 4-15 4 Filter Design with the FDATool GUI Exporting Filters from FDATool FDATool provides a simple way to create filter objects (dfilts) from your filter designs. This is particularly useful for saving your filter design to the MATLAB workspace for use with command line functions. You can also save your filters as MATLAB code by using File > Generate MATLAB code to run in scripts or batch files. 4-16 1 In FDATool, click Filter Manager and highlight only the Bandpass Butterworth-1 filter. 2 Select File > Export. 3 Set Export to to Workspace. Set Export as to Objects. In Discrete Filter type Hd1. Click Export to export the first filter in your filter bank to an Hd1 dfilt object in the workspace. 4 Repeat steps 1 through 3 for each of the remaining nine filters. Highlight each filter individually to make it the active filter and change the Discrete Filter name to match the filter number. When you finish you will have 10 dfilt objects in the workspace. 5 Close FDATool by selecting File > Close. 6 On the MATLAB command line, verify that your objects were exported by using the whos command. Exporting Filters from FDATool whos Name Hd1 Hd10 Hd2 Hd3 Hd4 Hd5 Hd6 Hd7 Hd8 Hd9 Size Bytes 1x1 1x1 1x1 1x1 1x1 1x1 1x1 1x1 1x1 1x1 Class Attributes dfilt.df2sos dfilt.df2sos dfilt.df2sos dfilt.df2sos dfilt.df2sos dfilt.df2sos dfilt.df2sos dfilt.df2sos dfilt.df2sos dfilt.df2sos Filtering with dfilt 1 Type the following on the MATLAB command line to concatenate your filter bank filter objects into a single dfilt object.

The use of fdesign and design provides a powerful and efficient way to specify and implement digital filters. With fdesign and design, digital filter design is a twostep process. In the first step, the user specifies the desired characteristics of the filter and saves those specifications in a Filter Specification Object. In the second step, the user implements the filter as a dfilt object, which can then be used to filter data. As an example of this two-step process, we will design a lowpass filter for data sampled at 20 kHz. The desired passband frequency is 1 kHz with a stopband frequency of 1.2 kHz. We will limit the passband ripple to 1 dB and require 60 dB of attenuation between the passband and stopband frequencies. 1 To specify the filter use fdesign.lowpass with the parameters given above. You can copy and paste the following code at the MATLAB command prompt. d=fdesign.lowpass('Fp,Fst,Ap,Ast',1000,1200,1,60,20000); 2 To design the filter use design with the appropriate design methods. In this example, we create FIR equiripple and IIR Butterworth designs and compare the filters' magnitude responses. Hd1=design(d,'equiripple'); %FIR equiripple design Hd2=design(d,'butter'); %Butterworth design Hd=[Hd1 Hd2];%filter object with both designs %compare filters fvtool(Hd,'legend','on'); axis([0 2 -70 10]) 4-20 Designing Filters Using Command Line Functions To determine which filter design methods are available for a given Filter Specification Object, use designmethods. For the lowpass filter example above, you have a choice of two FIR and four IIR digital filter designs: designmethods(d) Design Methods for class fdesign.lowpass (Fp,Fst,Ap,Ast): butter cheby1 cheby2 ellip equiripple kaiserwin 4-21
