Cast coefficients of digital filter to double precision



f2 = double(f1) casts coefficients in a digital filter, f1, to double precision and returns a new digital filter, f2, that contains these coefficients.

Use designfilt to design a 5th-order FIR lowpass filter. Specify a normalized passband frequency of 0.2π rad/sample and a normalized stopband frequency of 0.55π rad/sample.

Cast the filter to single precision and cast it back to double precision. Display the first coefficient of each filter.

Use double to analyze, in double precision, the effects of single-precision quantization of filter coefficients.

Input Arguments

collapse all

Single-precision digital filter, specified as a digitalFilter object. Use designfilt to generate a digital filter based on frequency-response specifications and single to cast it to single precision.

Example: f1= single(designfilt('lowpassfir','FilterOrder',3,'HalfPowerFrequency',0.5)) specifies a third-order Butterworth filter with normalized 3-dB frequency 0.5π rad/sample cast in single precision.

Output Arguments

collapse all

Double-precision digital filter, returned as a digitalFilter object.
