Filter (Highpass » Windowed FIR) (G Dataflow)

    Last Modified: January 9, 2017

    Filters a signal using a highpass windowed FIR filter. Highpass filters pass high frequencies and attenuate low frequencies.


    window parameter

    A value that affects the output coefficients when window type is Kaiser, Gaussian, or Dolph-Chebyshev.

    If window type is any other type of window, this node ignores this input.

    This input represents the following information for each type of window:

    • Kaiser—Beta parameter
    • Gaussian—Standard deviation
    • Dolph-Chebyshev—The ratio, s, of the main lobe to the side lobe

    Default: NaN—Causes this node to set beta to 0 for a Kaiser window, the standard deviation to 0.2 for a Gaussian window, and s to 60 for a Dolph-Chebyshev window


    window type

    Type of the smoothing window.

    Smoothing windows decrease ripple in the filter passband and improve the ability of the filter to attenuate frequency components in the filter stopband.

    Default: Rectangle



    A Boolean that specifies the initialization of the internal state of the node.

    True Initializes the internal state to zero.
    False Initializes the internal state to the final state from the previous call of this node.

    This node automatically initializes the internal state to zero on the first call and runs continuously until this input is True.

    Default: False



    The input signal.

    This input supports the following data types:

    • Waveform
    • 1D array of waveforms
    • 1D array of double-precision, floating-point numbers
    • 1D array of complex double-precision, floating-point numbers
    • 2D array of double-precision, floating-point numbers

    cutoff frequency

    Cutoff frequency of the filter.

    Default: 0.125


    number of taps

    Number of taps in the FIR filter.

    Default: 25



    Order of the filter.

    Default: 2


    error in

    Error conditions that occur before this node runs. The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

    Default: No error


    sampling frequency

    The sampling frequency in Hz.

    sampling frequency is available only if you wire a 1D or 2D array of double-precision, floating-point numbers to signal. The value must be greater than zero.

    Default: 1, which is the normalized sampling frequency


    filtered signal

    Result of filtering the input signal.


    error out

    Error information. The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

    Where This Node Can Run:

    Desktop OS: Windows

    FPGA: Not supported
