Iir filter design via the bilinear transformation

LabVIEW DSP allows the user to implement standard IIR digital filters designed using a filter designsupplemental program, called Digital Filter Design Toolkit. The DFD toolkit is an add-on module to LabVIEW (not LabVIEW Embedded). Thismodule allows the user to design complex filters, save them and implement them using LabVIEW DSP.

New Block Diagram with DFD Filter
  • Go to the Functions palette and add the DFD Filter Express VI to your existing Block Diagram: Functions»SignalProcessing»Filters»DFD Filter
  • Wire the Express VI as shown in Figure 6. The output of the Add function is the input “Signal” of the ExpressVI and the “Filtered Signal” goes into the Analog Output. Set the function generator’s signal to a frequency of 500 Hz.
  • Follow the steps below to implement alowpass filter that will be implemented on the DSP. Launch LabVIEW by going to Start»All Programs»National Instruments»LabVIEW7.1»LabVIEW. Let’s try to understand what is happening. We first launched LabVIEW Embedded Edition which allowed us to target theDSP hardware and run our program. Now, we are launching LabVIEW, not LabVIEW Embedded Edition. The program you built earlier shouldstill be open. We will use the Digital Filter Design Toolkit available in the LabVIEW environment to design the filter.
  • Create a blank VI (New»Blank VI).
  • Switch to the Block Diagram and drop a DFD Classical Filter Design on the Block Diagram: It is in Functions»AllFunctions»Digital Filter Design»Filter Design»DFD Classical Filter Design.
  • In the DFD Classical Filter Design Express VI, enter the following settings:
    • Filter Type: Lowpass
    • Sampling Frequency: 16000 Hz
    • Passband Edge Frequency: 1000 Hz
    • Passband ripple: 3 dB (standard for Butterworth filters)
    • Stopband Edge Frequency: 1500 Hz
    • Minimum stopband attenuation 20 dB
    • Design Method: Butterworth
    Leave the other settings to their default values.
    DFD Classical Filter Design Configuration Window
  • Check the graph to the left to make sure the filter response appears as expected and click “OK” to set theconfigurations.
  • Some filter parameters are described below:
    • Sampling Frequency – self-explanatory. Make sure to set it to the sampling frequency that you plan on using!
    • Center Frequency – (not used for lowpass filters). Set this to the middle frequency of the passband for Bandpass/Highpassfilters or the middle frequency of the stopband for Bandstop filters.
    • Bandwidth – Set this to the frequency width of the passband (stopband for Bandstop filters). Recall that Lowpass filters have alower passband frequency of 0 Hz and that Highpass filters has an upper passband frequency of Fs/2.
    • Stopband Attenuation – Set this to the desired attenuation in dB at the edge of the stopband. For Bandstop filters, thisparameter must be negative (because the stopband is really the passband). For all other filter types, this parameter must bepositive.
    • Passband Ripple – Set this to the desired attenuation (in dB) at the edge of the Passband. For Butterworth filters, the standard(but not required) value to use is 3 dB.
    • Filter Order N – Set this to the desired filter order. However, after you press the Apply button, the program calculateswhich filter order you need to meet the given specs. For most applications, then, you can put any number here and then change itto the necessary value when instructed. There may be some situations, however, when you want to force the filter order to besome set value. In this case, the desired specifications may not be met.
    Regarding calculation of filter order N: This program uses the same design equations that we use in EE 453. For IIR filters, the program automatically does prewarping.
  • Build the following Block Diagram to save the filter settings: Drop a “DFD Save to File” VI on the BlockDiagram. This VI is located at Functions»All Functions»Digital Filter Design»Utilities»DFD Save to File. Wire the Block Diagram asshown in Figure 6.
    Filter Design
  • Run the filter design VI you just built. When prompted to save your design, navigate to your folder and saveyour filter under any chosen name. Save and close this VI.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
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.
