#### Finding the group delay of a filter

```Has anyone implemented a function to find the group delay (the time between=
the filter's initial response and its peak response)of the different digit=
al filters in LabVIEW?<br><br>I need to track the arrival of a certain part=
of a signal. I know approx. when it is to arrive, however locating it gets=
complicated due to the variable delay caused by the necessary filtering (d=
elay depends on the frequencies, filter order, type etc.) .<br><br>I see th=
at MatLAB / MatWorks has a group delay function, but perhaps someone has ma=
de a G equivalent? <br><br>The digital filter design toolkit is said to hav=
e analysis tools that can give you the group delay...but I'm not sure if th=
at could be used to find the delay in any case programmatically? Even if it=
can I'm a bit reluctant to buy the toolkit just for that functionality...<=
br><br>I though I had solved it when I found a description of how to calcul=
ate the delay of a Butterworth filter (at least) on: http://www.mathcad.com=
/Library/LibraryContent/MathML/group_b.htm<br><br>The results are in the ri=
ght ballpark...but sometimes it fails by more than 5 microseconds and that'=
s not good enough for my application (could be an incorrect implementation =
off course). <br><br>If I use correlation to find the delay I get extremely=
good results, however that will not be robust enough (there could be other=
strong features, e.g. due to reflections, that might mislead the correlati=
on.). <br><br>An alternative might be to let the application generate a nic=
e signal with the right frequencies internally, run it through the chosen f=
ilter setup and find the group delay by correlation on that signal...then a=
pply it on the real signal. The most elegant thing would be to be able to d=
o it mathematically though.

Filter Group Delay
The Matlab command 'grpdelay' is restricted to digital filters only. Does there exist some counterpart to 'grpdelay' that operates in the analog domain? Some Matlab commands have separate versions for the analog and digital domains, and I wonder why 'grpdelay' does not. For example, the 'butter' command to generate Butterworth filter coefficients has digital and analog versions. The analog version is useful for understanding the stand-alone characteristics of a proposed filter, i.e., the characteristics that are independent of a particular sampled data record. ...

group delay DC filter
Dear all, My task is to implement a very narrow high pass filter to remove a DC offset of a signal. So the cut off frequency of the filter is very low. The filter must be linear phase. A first implementation was made using a double cascaded moving average filter. The filter seems to do its job very well. Unfortunately the group delay of the filter is too large. I have read some articles on multi rate filtering. Although I the feeling I could use this to find a filter with a shorter group delay most articles point out that multi rate filtering is not used to lessen the group delay. Let...

Filter design with a desired group delay?
Hi, The fdatool in matlab usually designs a real equiripple filter with a group delay (N-1)/2 or N/2, where N is filter length. Given desired magnitude response, to design a linear phase filter with a prescribed group delay, will the optimum filter be real coefficient and symmetric? Thanks.

How can I calculate group delay of a FIR filter on PC?
I am trying to calculate group delay of a FIR filter on PC. I use Matlab but I am confused with its algorithm. Basically the Matlab algorithm says this, group_delay(f) = Fourier transform of {n * h[n]} where h[n] is impulse response of the filter. But the Fourier transform of h[n]*n is the differentiation of H(w) with respect to w and not differentiation of phase of H(w) with respect to w, i.e. h[n]*n <------> j * d(H(w))/dw Am I missing something? What would people normally do to calculate group delay of a FIR filter on a PC? Thanks. cykhung@hotmail.com wrote: > I am trying t...

Filter design, minimal group delay, maximal variance
Hi all, I want to design a filter (invertable if possible) that has the minimu amount of group delay and captures the maximum amount of variance given particular data set. I'm thinking something very similiar to the Karhunen&Loeve (KL) transform aka the 'singular spectrum' and also 500 other names... It's just principl coponent analysis of the trjacectory matrix and retaining the first fe significant eigenvectors.

Low (group) delay IIR filters for real time applications
Hi all I'm trying to find design methods or literature for low/minimum group delay IIR filters. I'm a bit unsure about what will be the correct term for this kind of filters. But a typically linear-phase FIR has a group delay of 1/2 the filter length. This kind of delay will often be too much since I'm working with motion capture (MoCap) sensors that typically have sampling rates around 100 Hz. I'm guessing that IIR filters can give me more powerful low group-delay filters than FIR. But the typcal filter design tool in MATLAB does not optimize for low group delay. So my que...

Filter a group

What is the delay of this filter,
Dear all this is my homework, I should determine the delay of this symmetric FIR filter whose length is 3. y[n]=x[n]+x[n-1]+x[n-2]. The answer in the manual solutions is 1. I am confused. In my view, clearly h[0]=1, h(1)=1, h(2)=0, otherwise =zero and it's delay must be two. I guess that the answer is 1 because the filter is symmetric so that h[k]=h[M-k-1] (M=3 is the length of the filter). So delay is only (M-1)/2 if M is odd. Using this thinking, I can find the same answers as in the solution manuals. But indeed I am not satisfied with this explaination and would like to ask you al...

phase to group delay
I designed an algorithm to compute signal delay through an RF channel. I first verified the algorithm using a known IIR model. I managed to get groupdelay of this IIR spot on compared to that given by Matlab function grpdelay(num,den). The algorithm is based on sending frequency sweep chirp signal followed by fft then conversion of phase to groupdelay using the derivative of negative angular phase with respect to angular frequency. The algorithm has been released and is working well. I am now asked if I could apply it to the case when the available test signal is only single tone instead of frequency sweep. I tested my same algorithm on single tone. All looks ok but with a mystery factor of 2 needed to get IIR model groupdelay match that of matlab. I mean if I multiply the computed groupdelay based on fft by 2 then it gets correct with a small margin of error. Any idea what this factor of 2 might be. In both cases I use real only chirp signal or real only single tone and the fft is complex. Processing is identical throughout the algorithm for both cases in every step.

Find proper group
Hi! I'm looking for a piece of free software to run on a LAMP set-up. The intent is to allow anyone to add some information into a database (a URL and short description - nothing very fancy at all!) and be able to query it later, all via a web page. Most importantly, it needs to be set up with a minimum of effort and without programming. There is neither time nor skill available for programming, though modifying a set-up file given some usable documentation is OK. I don't anticipate a large number of users, but the backend database might get pretty big. Since it's MySQL, I'm not too concerned about size, but performance may be an issue later. I've looked through google and haven't seen anything, but I'm betting that's because I can't find the right keywords. Can anyone tell me: 1) if you know of such a system already in existence (and where it is); or 2) what keywords you would use to find such a beast? I apologize for this being off topic, but I'm stumped. Thanks! -- Jonathan Allan Neither Mayo Clinic nor I speak for each other unless we explicitly say so.

CIC Group Delay
I would like to know if I can predict what the group delay of a CIC filter is. I have an agressive FIR BPF where the sample rate is 2000 x the filter bandwidth. The group delay is longer than I would like it to be. Could a CIC filter offer a lower group delay? I'll need to interpolate back to the original sample rate, so I need to take that into consideration as part of the answer. Thanks, in advance.
