Transform IIR lowpass filter to IIR bandpass filter
[Num,Den,AllpassNum,AllpassDen] =
iirlp2bp(B,A,Wo,Wt)
[G,AllpassNum,AllpassDen] = iirlp2bp(Hd,Wo,Wt)
where Hd is a dfilt object
[Num,Den,AllpassNum,AllpassDen] = iirlp2bp(B,A,Wo,Wt) returns the numerator and denominator vectors, Num and Den respectively, of the target filter transformed from the real lowpass prototype by applying a second-order real lowpass to real bandpass frequency mapping.
It also returns the numerator, AllpassNum, and the denominator AllpassDen, of the allpass mapping filter. The prototype lowpass filter is given with a numerator specified by B and a denominator specified by A.
This transformation effectively places one feature of an original filter, located at frequency -W_{o}, at the required target frequency location, W_{t1}, and the second feature, originally at +W_{o}, at the new location, W_{t2}. It is assumed that W_{t2} is greater than W_{t1}. 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 W_{t}s.
Relative positions of other features of an original filter do not change in the target filter. This means that it is possible to select two features of an original filter, F_{1} and F_{2}, with F_{1} preceding F_{2}. Feature F_{1} will still precede F_{2} after the transformation. However, the distance between F_{1} and F_{2} 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. In general it is possible to select any feature: the stopband edge, the DC, the deep minimum in the stopband, or other ones.
Real lowpass to bandpass transformation can also be used for transforming other types of filters; e.g., real notch filters or resonators can be doubled and positioned at two distinct desired frequencies.
[G,AllpassNum,AllpassDen] = iirlp2bp(Hd,Wo,Wt) returns transformed dfilt object G with a real bandpass magnitude response. The coefficients AllpassNum and AllpassDen represent the allpass mapping filter for mapping the prototype filter frequency Wo and target frequencies vector Wt. Note that in this syntax Hd is a dfilt object with a lowpass magnitude response.
Design a prototype real IIR halfband filter using a standard elliptic approach:
[b,a] = ellip(3, 0.1, 30, 0.409);
Create the real bandpass filter by placing the cutoff frequencies of the prototype filter at the band edge frequencies W_{t1}=0.25 and W_{t2}=0.75:
[num,den] = iirlp2bp(b,a,0.5,[0.25,0.75]);
Verify the result by comparing the prototype filter with the target filter:
fvtool(b,a,num,den);
You can compare the results in this figure to verify the transformation.
Variable | Description |
---|---|
B | Numerator of the prototype lowpass filter |
A | Denominator of the prototype lowpass filter |
Wo | Frequency value to be transformed from the prototype filter |
Wt | Desired frequency locations in the transformed target filter |
Num | Numerator of the target filter |
Den | Denominator of the target filter |
AllpassNum | Numerator of the mapping filter |
AllpassDen | Denominator of the mapping filter |
Frequencies must be normalized to be between 0 and 1, with 1 corresponding to half the sample rate.
