This is in contrast to finite impulse response (FIR) filters. applied to the input signal samples. in designing IIR filters it is necessary to carefully consider "time zero" case in which the outputs of the filter have not yet been clearly defined.
. Butterworth filter. As a result. respectively. Chebyshev filter. when a digital IIR filter is going to be implemented. as IIR filters. Equation (1) describes an IIR filter:
y [ n ] = − ∑a k y [ n − k ] +
M −1 k =0
∑bk x[ n − k ]
Where: x and y represent the input and output data. an analog filter (e. Elliptic filter) is first designed and then is converted to a digital filter by applying discretization techniques such as Bilinear transform or Impulse invariance.
Example IIR filters include the Chebyshev filter. usually. and the Bessel filter. oppositely to FIR filters. which is explained because it has feedback.
An IIR (Infinite Impulse Response) filter. The simplest analog IIR filter is an RC filter made up of a single resistor (R) feeding into a node shared with a single capacitor (C).Infinite impulse response Infinite impulse response (IIR) is a property of signal processing systems. IIR filters may be implemented as either analog or digital filters. the output feedback is immediately apparent in the equations defining the output. Design of digital IIR filters is heavily dependent on that of their analog counterparts because there are plenty of resources. Butterworth filter.g.
bk is the set of the
M feedforward filter coefficients. has an infinite response to impulse signals. Note that unlike with FIR filters. In digital IIR filters. which have fixed-duration impulse responses. when dealing with filter systems. works and straightforward design methods concerning analog feedback filter design while there are hardly any for digital IIR filters. Systems with this property are known as IIR systems or. This filter has an exponential impulse response characterized by an RC time constant. IIR systems have an impulse response function that is non-zero over an infinite length of time.
N − 1 is the feedback filter order.
M − 1 is the feedforward filter order. IIR filters induce nonlinear phase. This leads to a significant reduction computational complexity and delay of the signal through the filter. In addition.
Infinite impulse response (IIR) filters are an alternative to finite impulse response (FIR) filters. That is because IIR filters require much lower order implementations than FIR filters for a similar performance.
. and transition-band properties typically require far fewer filter taps (coefficients) than an FIR filter meeting similar specifications. however. applied to the
previous output samples.a k is the set of the N feedback filter coefficients (if we include a 0 = 1 ). IIR filters have poles resulting in feedback. Some of these complications are explored in these lab exercises. IIR filters result in nonlinear phase distortion (delaying frequency components by different amounts especially those near the transition bands). can become unstable. Feedback can increase the sensitivity to errors introduced from finite arithmetic computations (especially for fixed-point processors). Like FIR filters. An IIR implementation typically can meet filter specifications with less computation than an FIR implementation. IIR filters are linear time-invariant (LTI) systems that can recreate a wide range of frequency responses. pass-band. which has potential for instability (if poles not placed inside the unit circle). and are more sensitive to numerical problems. However.
The transfer function H ( z ) of the IIR filter is expressed as follows:
H ( z) =
Y ( z ) B( z ) = = X ( z ) A( z )
k =0 N −1 k =1
∑bk z −k ∑a k z
IIR filters can be used in applications that require sharp cut-off or narrow band filters and where linear phase is not a requirement. IIR implementations with specified stop-band.
(1) is factored into an all-zero filter (FIR) followed by an all-pole filter. and the circles represent accumulators. and a0=1 for corresponding to the IIR filter of Eq. (1). Recall the product of transfer functions corresponds to series connections (cascade) in the time domain. where the output of one filter becomes the input to the next. the triangles represent multiplies. (1) suggests the direct form I implementation shown in Fig. Direct form I implementation of an IIR filter. The square blocks represent unit delays. using the transfer function in the following form:

we first take the Z-transform of each side of the above equation.
A more condensed form of the difference equation is:
To find the transfer function of the filter. where we use the time-shift property to obtain:
We define the transfer function to be:

Considering that in most IIR filter designs coefficient takes the more traditional form:

Description of block diagram
Simple IIR filter block diagram A typical block diagram of an IIR filter looks like the following. The coefficients and number of feedback/feedforward paths are implementationdependent.
boundedoutput (BIBO) stable. all poles must be located within a unit circle in the z-plane. The poles are defined as the values of z which make the denominator of H(z) equal to 0:
Clearly. FIR Filters
The primary advantage of IIR filters over FIR filters is that they typically meet a given set of specifications with a much lower filter order than a corresponding FIR filter. the BIBO stability criteria requires that the ROC of the system includes the unit circle. and is therefore always stable. data processing within MATLAB software is commonly
. all poles of the transfer function have to have an absolute value smaller than one. Although IIR filters have nonlinear phase. For example. IIR filters are sometimes preferred over FIR filters because an IIR filter can achieve a much sharper transition region roll-off than FIR filter of the same order. The time-domain impulse response is h(n) = anu(n) which is non-zero for n> = 0. This is in contrast to the FIR filter where all poles are located at the origin. if then the poles are not located at the origin of the z-plane. To be specific. In other words. for a causal system.

The transfer function allows us to judge whether or not a system is bounded-input. Example Let the transfer function of a filter H be

Butterworth. and in lowpass. and transition width(s). and bandstop configurations. for which only the analog case is supported). and Bessel. zero-phase filtering approach (via the filtfilt function). all approximate the ideal "brick wall" filter in different ways. This toolbox provides functions to create all these types of classical IIR filters in both the analog and digital domains (except Bessel.
G) Classical IIR Filters
The classical IIR filters. elliptic. the entire data sequence is available prior to filtering. you can also find the lowest filter order that fits a given filter specification in terms of passband and stopband attenuation.
Where: ΩLPc=cut off frequncy ΩLPs=stop band frequency
•Band Pass Filter:
•Stop Band Pass Filter:
These functions are discussed in Parametric Modeling.You can also use the parametric modeling or system identification functions to design IIR filters. This is one way to create a multiband bandpassfilter.
H) Advantages of IIR filters
•IIR filters are useful for high-speed designs because they typically require a lower number of multiplies compared to FIR filters.

The direct filter design function yulewalk finds a filter with magnitude response approximating a desired function. •IIR filters can be designed to have a frequency response that is a discrete version of the frequency response of an analog filter.
