1 CHAPTER 21 Filter Comparison Decisions, decisions, decisions! With all these filters to choose from, how do you know which to use? This chapter is a head-to-head competition between filters; we'll select champions from each side and let them fight it out. In the first match, digital filters are pitted against analog filters to see which technology is best. In the second round, the windowed-sinc is matched against the Chebyshev to find the king of the frequency domain filters. In the final battle, the moving average fights the single pole filter for the time domain championship. Enough talk; let the competition begin! Match #1: Analog vs. Digital Filters Most digital signals originate in analog electronics. If the signal needs to be filtered, is it better to use an analog filter before digitization, or a digital filter after? We will answer this question by letting two of the best contenders deliver their blows. The goal will be to provide a low-pass filter at 1 khz. Fighting for the analog side is a six pole Chebyshev filter with db (6%) ripple. As described in Chapter 3, this can be constructed with 3 op amps, 12 resistors, and 6 capacitors. In the digital corner, the windowed-sinc is warming up and ready to fight. The analog signal is digitized at a 1 khz sampling rate, making the cutoff frequency.1 on the digital frequency scale. The length of the windowed-sinc will be chosen to be 129 points, providing the same 9% to 1% roll-off as the analog filter. Fair is fair. Figure 21-1 shows the frequency and step responses for these two filters. Let's compare the two filters blow-by-blow. As shown in (a) and (b), the analog filter has a 6% ripple in the passband, while the digital filter is perfectly flat (within 2%). The analog designer might argue that the ripple can be selected in the design; however, this misses the point. The flatness achievable with analog filters is limited by the accuracy of their resistors and 343

Digital filters have better performance in many areas, such as: passband ripple, (a) vs. (b), roll-off and stopband attenuation, (c) vs. (d), and step response symmetry, (e) vs. (f). The digital filter in this example has a cutoff frequency of.1 of the 1 khz sampling rate. This provides a fair comparison to the 1 khz cutoff frequency of the analog filter. a linear scale to show their exceptional filter performance, while analog filters need the logarithmic scale to show their huge dynamic range.

4 346 The Scientist and Engineer's Guide to Digital Signal Processing Match #2: Windowed-Sinc vs. Chebyshev Both the windowed-sinc and the Chebyshev filters are designed to separate one band of frequencies from another. The windowed-sinc is an FIR filter implemented by convolution, while the Chebyshev is an IIR filter carried out by recursion. Which is the best digital filter in the frequency domain? We'll let them fight it out. The recursive filter contender will be a % ripple, 6 pole Chebyshev low-pass filter. A fair comparison is complicated by the fact that the Chebyshev's frequency response changes with the cutoff frequency. We will use a cutoff frequency of.2, and select the windowed-sinc's filter kernel to be 51 points. This makes both filters have the same 9% to 1% roll-off, as shown in Fig. 21-2(a). Now the pushing and shoving begins. The recursive filter has a % ripple in the passband, while the windowed-sinc is flat. However, we could easily set the recursive filter ripple to % if needed. No points. Figure 21-2b shows that the windowed-sinc has a much better stopband attenuation than the Chebyshev. One point for the windowed-sinc. Figure 21-3 shows the step response of the two filters. Both are bad, as you should expect for frequency domain filters. The recursive filter has a nonlinear phase, but this can be corrected with bidirectional filtering. Since both filters are so ugly in this parameter, we will call this a draw. So far, there isn't much difference between these two filters; either will work when moderate performance is needed. The heavy hitting comes over two critical issues: maximum performance and speed. The windowed-sinc is a powerhouse, while the Chebyshev is quick and agile. Suppose you have a really tough frequency separation problem, say, needing to isolate a 1 4 a. response 2 b. response (db) windowed-sinc Chebyshev recursive (db) windowed-sinc Chebyshev recursive -8-1 FIGURE 21-2 Windowed-sinc and Chebyshev frequency responses. responses are shown for a 51 point windowed-sinc filter and a 6 pole, % ripple Chebyshev recursive filter. The windowed-sinc has better stopband attenuation, but either will work in moderate performance applications. The cutoff frequency of both filters is.2, measured at an amplitude of for the windowed-sinc, and.77 for the recursive.

The step responses are shown for a 51 point windowed-sinc filter and a 6 pole, % ripple Chebyshev recursive filter. Each of these filters has a cutoff frequency of.2. The windowed-sinc has a slightly better step response because it has less overshoot and a zero phase. millivolt signal at 61 hertz that is riding on a 12 volt power line at 6 hertz. Figure 21-4 shows how these two filters compare when you need maximum performance. The recursive filter is a 6 pole Chebyshev with % ripple. This is the maximum number of poles that can be used at a 5 cutoff frequency with single precision. The windowed-sinc uses a 11 point filter kernel, formed by convolving a 51 point windowed-sinc filter kernel with itself. As shown in Chapter 16, this provides greater stopband attenuation. How do these two filters compare when maximum performance is needed? The windowed-sinc crushes the Chebyshev! Even if the recursive filter were improved (more poles, multistage implementation, double precision, etc.), it is still no match for the FIR performance. This is especially impressive when you consider that the windowed-sinc has only begun to fight. There are strong limits on the maximum performance that recursive filters can provide. The windowed-sinc, in contrast, can be pushed to incredible levels. This is, of course, provided you are willing to wait for the result. Which brings up the second critical issue: speed. 2 FIGURE 21-4 Maximum performance of FIR and IIR filters. The frequency response of the windowed-sinc can be virtually any shape needed, while the Chebyshev recursive filter is very limited. This graph compares the frequency response of a six pole Chebyshev recursive filter with a 11 point windowed-sinc filter. (db) Chebyshev (IIR) Windowed-sinc (FIR) -1

6 348 The Scientist and Engineer's Guide to Digital Signal Processing 5 FIGURE 21-5 Comparing FIR and IIR execution speeds. These curves shows the relative execution times for a windowed-sinc filter compared with an equivalent six pole Chebyshev recursive filter. Curves are shown for implementing the FIR filter by both the standard and the FFT convolution algorithms. The windowed-sinc execution time rises at low and high frequencies because the filter kernel must be made longer to keep up with the greater performance of the recursive filter at these frequencies. In general, IIR filters are an order of magnitude faster than FIR filters of comparable performance. Relative execution time standard convolution FFT convolution Recursive Comparing these filters for speed is like racing a Ferrari against a go-cart. Figure 21-5 shows how much longer the windowed-sinc takes to execute, compared to a six pole recursive filter. Since the recursive filter has a faster roll-off at low and high frequencies, the length of the windowed-sinc kernel must be made longer to match the performance (i.e., to keep the comparison fair). This accounts for the increased execution time for the windowed-sinc near frequencies and. The important point is that FIR filters can be expected to be about an order of magnitude slower than comparable IIR filters (go-cart: 15 mph, Ferrari: 15 mph). Match #3: Moving Average vs. Single Pole Our third competition will be a battle of the time domain filters. The first fighter will be a nine point moving average filter. Its opponent for today's match will be a single pole recursive filter using the bidirectional technique. To achieve a comparable frequency response, the single pole filter will use a sample-to-sample decay of x '.7. The battle begins in Fig where the frequency response of each filter is shown. Neither one is very impressive, but of course, frequency separation isn't what these filters are used for. No points for either side. Figure 21-7 shows the step responses of the filters. In (a), the moving average step response is a straight line, the most rapid way of moving from one level to another. In (b), the recursive filter's step response is smoother, which may be better for some applications. One point for each side. These filters are quite equally matched in terms of performance and often the choice between the two is made on personal preference. However, there are

7 Chapter 21- Filter Comparison FIGURE 21-6 Moving average and single pole frequency responses. Both of these filters have a poor frequency response, as you should expect for time domain filters Single pole recursive Moving average two cases where one filter has a slight edge over the other. These are based on the trade-off between development time and execution time. In the first instance, you want to reduce development time and are willing to accept a slower filter. For example, you might have a one time need to filter a few thousand points. Since the entire program runs in only a few seconds, it is pointless to spend time optimizing the algorithm. Floating point will almost certainly be used. The choice is to use the moving average filter carried out by convolution, or a single pole recursive filter. The winner here is the recursive filter. It will be slightly easier to program and modify, and will execute much faster. The second case is just the opposite; your filter must operate as fast as possible and you are willing to spend the extra development time to get it. For instance, this filter might be a part of a commercial product, with the potential to be run millions of times. You will probably use integers for the highest possible speed. Your choice of filters will be the moving average a. Moving average b. Bidirectional recursive FIGURE 21-7 Step responses of the moving average and the bidirectional single pole filter. The moving average step response occurs over a smaller number of samples, while the single pole filter's step response is smoother.

8 35 The Scientist and Engineer's Guide to Digital Signal Processing carried out by recursion, or the single pole recursive filter implemented with look-up tables or integer math. The winner is the moving average filter. It will execute faster and not be susceptible to the development and execution problems of integer arithmetic.
