Transform IIR lowpass filter to complex bandpass filter

Description

example

[num,den,allpassNum,allpassDen] = iirlp2bpc(b,a,wo,wt) transforms an IIR lowpass filter to a complex bandpass filter.

The function transforms a real lowpass prototype filter, specified as the numerator and denominator coefficients b and a respectively, to a complex bandpass filter by applying a first-order real lowpass to complex bandpass frequency transformation.

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

For more details on the transformation, see IIR Lowpass to Complex Bandpass Transformation.

Transform a lowpass IIR filter to a complex bandpass filter using the iirlp2bpc function.

Input Lowpass IIR Filter

Design a prototype real IIR lowpass elliptic filter with 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 iirlp2bpc

Transform the prototype lowpass filter into a complex 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] = iirlp2bpc(b,a,0.5,[0.25 0.75]);

Compare the magnitude response of the filters using FVTool.

hvft = fvtool(b,a,num,den);
legend(hvft,"Prototype Filter (TF Form)",...
    "Transformed Filter")

{"String":"Figure Figure 2: 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 Filter.","Tex":"Magnitude Response (dB)","LaTex":[]}

Alternatively, you can also specify the input lowpass IIR filter as a matrix of coefficients. Pass the second order section coefficient matrices as inputs.

ss = tf2sos(b,a);
[num2,den2] = iirlp2bpc(ss(:,1:3),ss(:,4:6),0.5,[0.25 0.75]);

Compare the magnitude response of the filters using FVTool.

hvft = fvtool(ss,[num2 den2]);
legend(hvft,"Prototype Filter (Matrix Form)", ...
    "Transformed Filter")

IIR Lowpass to Complex Bandpass Transformation

IIR lowpass to complex 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.

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.

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 at any place around the unit circle, forming a pair of complex notches or resonators. You can use this transformation to design bandpass filters for radio receivers from the high-quality prototype lowpass filter.
