iirlp2bp

Transform IIR lowpass filter to IIR bandpass filter

Description

example

[num,den,allpassNum,allpassDen] = iirlp2bp(b,a,wo,wt) transforms an IIR lowpass filter to an IIR bandpass filter.

The iirlp2bp function returns the numerator and denominator coefficients of the transformed bandpass filter. The function transforms the real lowpass prototype filter, specified by the numerator coefficients b and denominator coefficients a, by applying a second-order real lowpass to real bandpass frequency mapping. For more information, see IIR Lowpass to IIR Bandpass Transformation.

The function also returns the numerator and the denominator coefficients of the allpass mapping filter, allpassNum and allpassDen respectively.

Frequencies must be normalized to be between 0 and 1, with 1 corresponding to half the sample rate.

Transform a lowpass IIR filter to a bandpass filter using the iirlp2bp function.

Input Lowpass IIR Filter

Design a prototype real IIR lowpass elliptic filter using the ellip function. The filter has a gain of about –3 dB at 0.5π rad/sample.

[b,a] = ellip(3,0.1,30,0.409);
fvtool(b,a)

Transform Filter Using iirlp2bp

Transform the prototype lowpass filter into a bandpass filter by placing the cutoff frequencies of the prototype filter at 0.25π and 0.75π.

Specify the prototype filter as a vector of numerator and denominator coefficients, b and a respectively.

[num,den] = iirlp2bp(b,a,0.5,[0.25 0.75]);

Compare the magnitude response of the filters using FVTool.

hvft = fvtool(b,a,num,den);

Figure Magnitude Response (dB) contains an axes object. The axes object with title Magnitude Response (dB) contains 2 objects of type line. These objects represent Prototype Filter (TF Form), Transformed Bandpass Filter.

You can also specify the input lowpass IIR filter as a matrix of coefficients. Pass the second-order section matrices as inputs. The transformed filter is a fourth-order section filter given by the numerator and the denominator coefficients num2 and den2.

ss = tf2sos(b,a);
[num2,den2] = iirlp2bp(ss(:,1:3),ss(:,4:6),0.5,[0.25 0.75]);

Compare the magnitude response of the filters using FVTool.

To visualize the magnitude response of the fourth-order section filter, first pass the filter coefficients to the dsp.FourthOrderSectionFilter object. Then, use this object as an input to the FVTool.

fos = dsp.FourthOrderSectionFilter(Numerator=num2,...
         Denominator=den2);       
hvft = fvtool(ss,fos);

IIR Lowpass to IIR Bandpass Transformation

IIR lowpass to IIR bandpass transformation effectively places one feature of the original filter, located at frequency −wo, at the required target frequency location wt1, and the second feature, originally at +wo, at the new location wt2. It is assumed that wt2 is greater than wt1. This transformation implements the “DC Mobility,” meaning that the Nyquist feature stays at Nyquist, but the DC feature moves to a location dependent on the selection of wts.

Relative positions of other features of the original filter do not change in the target filter. This means that it is possible to select two features of an original filter, F1 and F2, with F1 preceding F2. Feature F1 will still precede F2 after the transformation. However, the distance between F1 and F2 will not be the same before and after the transformation.

Choice of the feature subject to the lowpass to bandpass transformation is not restricted only to the cutoff frequency of an original lowpass filter. You can choose to transform any feature of the original filter like stopband edge, DC, deep minimum in the stopband, or others.

Real lowpass to bandpass transformation can also be used to transform other types of filters, for example, real notch filters or resonators can be doubled and positioned at two distinct desired frequencies.
