(Blank Abstract)

## Summary: amplitude formulas

Type $()$ $A()$
I $-(M)$ $h(M)+2\sum_{n=0}^{M-1} h(n)\cos ((M-n))$
II $-(M)$ $2\sum_{n=0}^{\frac{N}{2}-1} h(n)\cos ((M-n))$
III $-(M)+\frac{\pi }{2}$ $2\sum_{n=0}^{M-1} h(n)\sin ((M-n))$
IV $-(M)+\frac{\pi }{2}$ $2\sum_{n=0}^{\frac{N}{2}-1} h(n)\sin ((M-n))$

where $M=\frac{N-1}{2}$

## Amplitude response characteristics

To analyze or design linear-phase FIR filters, we need to know the characteristics of the amplitude response $A()$ .

Type Properties
I $A()$ is even about $=0$ $A()=A(-)$
$A()$ is even about $=\pi$ $A(\pi +)=A(\pi -)$
$A()$ is periodic with $2\pi$ $A(+2\pi )=A()$
II $A()$ is even about $=0$ $A()=A(-)$
$A()$ is odd about $=\pi$ $A(\pi +)=-A(\pi -)$
$A()$ is periodic with $4\pi$ $A(+4\pi )=A()$
III $A()$ is odd about $=0$ $A()=-A(-)$
$A()$ is odd about $=\pi$ $A(\pi +)=-A(\pi -)$
$A()$ is periodic with $2\pi$ $A(+2\pi )=A()$
IV $A()$ is odd about $=0$ $A()=-A(-)$
$A()$ is even about $=\pi$ $A(\pi +)=A(\pi -)$
$A()$ is periodic with $4\pi$ $A(+4\pi )=A()$

## Evaluating the amplitude response

The frequency response ${H}^{f}()$ of an FIR filter can be evaluated at $L$ equally spaced frequencies between 0 and $\pi$ using the DFT. Consider a causal FIR filter with an impulse response $h(n)$ of length- $N$ , with $N\le L$ . Samples of the frequency response of the filter can be written as $H(\frac{2\pi }{L}k)=\sum_{n=0}^{N-1} h(n)e^{-i\frac{2\pi }{L}nk}$ Define the $L$ -point signal $\{g(n)\colon 0\le n\le L-1\}$ as $g(n)=\begin{cases}h(n) & \text{if 0\le n\le N-1}\\ 0 & \text{if N\le n\le L-1}\end{cases}$ Then $H(\frac{2\pi }{L}k)=G(k)={\mathrm{DFT}}_{L}(g(n))$ where $G(k)$ is the $L$ -point DFT of $g(n)$ .

## Types i and ii

Suppose the FIR filter $h(n)$ is either a Type I or a Type II FIR filter. Then we have from above ${H}^{f}()=A()e^{-iM}$ or $A()={H}^{f}()e^{iM}$ Samples of the real-valued amplitude $A()$ can be obtained from samples of the function ${H}^{f}()$ as: $A(\frac{2\pi }{L}k)=H(\frac{2\pi }{L}k)e^{iM\frac{2\pi }{L}k}=G(k){W}_{L}^{Mk}$ Therefore, the samples of the real-valued amplitude function can be obtained by zero-padding $h(n)$ , taking the DFT, and multiplying by the complex exponential. This can be written as:

$A(\frac{2\pi }{L}k)={\mathrm{DFT}}_{L}()$
h n 0 L - N
W L M k

## Types iii and iv

For Type III and Type IV FIR filters, we have ${H}^{f}()=ie^{-iM}A()$ or $A()=-i{H}^{f}()e^{iM}$ Therefore, samples of the real-valued amplitude $A()$ can be obtained from samples of the function ${H}^{f}()$ as: $A(\frac{2\pi }{L}k)=-iH(\frac{2\pi }{L}k)e^{iM\frac{2\pi }{L}k}=-iG(k){W}_{L}^{Mk}$ Therefore, the samples of the real-valued amplitude function can be obtained by zero-padding $h(n)$ , taking the DFT, and multiplying by the complex exponential.

$A(\frac{2\pi }{L}k)=-i{\mathrm{DFT}}_{L}()$
h n 0 L - N
W L M k

## Evaluating the amp resp (type i)

In this example, the filter is a Type I FIR filter of length 7. An accurate plot of $A()$ can be obtained with zero padding.

The following Matlab code fragment for the plot of $A()$ for a Type I FIR filter.

h = [3 4 5 6 5 4 3]/30;N = 7; M = (N-1)/2;L = 512; H = fft([h zeros(1,L-N)]); k = 0:L-1;W = exp(j*2*pi/L); A = H .* W.^(M*k);A = real(A); figure(1)w = [0:L-1]*2*pi/(L-1);subplot(2,1,1) plot(w/pi,abs(H))ylabel('|H(\omega)| = |A(\omega)|') xlabel('\omega/\pi')subplot(2,1,2) plot(w/pi,A)ylabel('A(\omega)') xlabel('\omega/\pi')print -deps type1

The command A = real(A) removes the imaginary part which is equal to zero to within computerprecision. Without this command, Matlab takes A to be a complex vector and the following plot command will not be right.

Observe the symmetry of $A()$ due to $h(n)$ being real-valued. Because of this symmetry, $A()$ is usually plotted for $0\le \le \pi$ only.

## Evaluating the amp resp (type ii)

The following Matlab code fragment produces a plot of $A()$ for a Type II FIR filter.

h = [3 5 6 7 7 6 5 3]/42;N = 8; M = (N-1)/2;L = 512; H = fft([h zeros(1,L-N)]); k = 0:L-1;W = exp(j*2*pi/L); A = H .* W.^(M*k);A = real(A); figure(1)w = [0:L-1]*2*pi/(L-1);subplot(2,1,1) plot(w/pi,abs(H))ylabel('|H(\omega)| = |A(\omega)|') xlabel('\omega/\pi')subplot(2,1,2) plot(w/pi,A)ylabel('A(\omega)') xlabel('\omega/\pi')print -deps type2

The imaginary part of the amplitude is zero. Notice that $A(\pi )=0$ . In fact this will always be the case for a Type II FIR filter.

An exercise for the student: Describe how to obtain samples of $A()$ for Type III and Type IV FIR filters. Modify the Matlab code above for these types. Do you notice that $A()=0$ always for special values of  ?

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
