iirlp2mbc

Transform IIR lowpass filter to IIR complex multiband filter

Description

example

[num,den,allpassNum,allpassDen] = iirlp2mbc(b,a,wo,wt) transform an IIR lowpass filter to an IIR complex multiband filter.

The iirlp2mbc returns the numerator and denominator coefficients of the transformed complex IIR multiband filter. The function also returns the numerator, allpassNum, and the denominator, allpassDen, of the Mth order allpass mapping filter. The prototype lowpass filter is specified with the numerator b and the denominator a.

The function transforms a real lowpass prototype filter to a multiband filter by applying an Mth-order real lowpass to complex multiple bandpass frequency mapping. Parameter M is the number of times an original feature is replicated in the transformed filter. For more details, see IIR Lowpass Filter to IIR Complex Multiband Filter Transformation.

Transform a real lowpass IIR filter to a complex multiband IIR filter using the iirlp2mbc 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)

Figure Magnitude Response (dB) contains an axes object. The axes object with title Magnitude Response (dB) contains an object of type line.

Transform Filter Using iirlp2mbc

Transform the real prototype lowpass filter into a complex multiband filter with two passbands.

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

[num,den] = iirlp2mbc(b,a,0.5,[-7 -5 6 8]/10);

Compare the magnitude response of the filters using FVTool. iirlp2mbc replicates the desired feature at 0.5 in the lowpass filter at four locations in the multiband filter.

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

    "Transformed Multiband Filter")

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 Multiband Filter.

Alternatively, 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] = iirlp2mbc(ss(:,1:3),ss(:,4:6),0.5,[-7 -5 6 8]/10);

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);
legend(hvft,"Prototype Filter (SOS Form)",...
    "Transformed Multiband Filter")

IIR Lowpass Filter to IIR Complex Multiband Filter Transformation

IIR lowpass filter to IIR complex multiband filter transformation effectively places one feature of the original filter, located at frequency wo, at the required target frequency locations, wt1, … ,wtM.

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 this transformation is not restricted 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.

The IIR lowpass filter to IIR complex multiband filter transformation can also be used for transforming other types of filters, for example, notch filters or resonators can be easily replicated at a number of required frequency locations. A good application would be an adaptive tone cancellation circuit reacting to the changing number and location of tones.
