## convolution in matlab without using conv

hi!

i am suppose to design a low pass filter(lpf) using any window methods without uisng built-in functions in matlab. and the output should be a frequency response of the filter.

i could find coefficients of window(simply by substituting the formula for one of the windows) but designing the lpf without using the built-in functions has been very irritating !!

if anyone could help me concerned with this i will be very thankful!!!

thank you!

## fir filter without matlab function

baladrg1987,

Any good book on digital signal processing or digital filters will show the technique. Also, see:

## matlab built filter from coeff

This is a typical project to give you some hands-on experience with digital FIR filters. If you have some feeling with the theory, you should be able to do this :

- Rectangular frequence response (store in an vector)

- inverse dft on it

- apply window

there the filter is.

The frequency response is the opposte :

- take the filter coeficients

- apply dft

How can i get that.

Or if u suggest any other method for me to design a BPF and apply it to my signal.

I've really got confused.

Thanks in advance.

## dft filter in matlab

For a FIR-filter : if you have your filter coeficients, you use concolution to apply it to your signal. (this is basically how the filter works).

Code:w = conv(u,v) convolves vectors u and v. Algebraically, convolution is the same operation as multiplying the polynomials whose coefficients are the elements of u and v.

## matlab programs of dft without builtin function

I've used the function

but i have no result.

The code that u've written of using conv(u,v)

I think it can't work coz my coefficients r 2 vectors, num & den

and i want to apply it on my signal x

but, the conv function have just 2 arguments.

Is there any other function that works for my num & den coefficients.

Please... help

And, sorry for interruption.

## matlab built in functions code

Num and den are the coeficients for the polynomials defining A and B in

H(Z) = B(Z)/A(Z)

When the coeficients of A are zero, except the first one, you made a FIR filter, and just divide all coeficient from B with a0. This is the impulse respone of the filter, and is finite (Finite Impluse Response filter). You can use these coeficients to do a convolution with your input signal.

When there are other coeficients than the first one of A are nonzero, you made an IIR filter (Infinite Impulse response filter). You can find the impulse respone by dividing the polynomials A and B, and you will see it never ends (but the results become smalleer and smaller, I hope). Because the impulse response never ends, it's inpractical to do with convolution.

If you look at how a digital filter works, it will be not to difficult to apply the filter to any input signal.

## matlab code without inbuilt functions

indeed it needs to be the discrete version of the transform, with DFT, I mean Discrete Fourrier Transform.
