Optional. An integer, the number of output samples, defaults to 2048. |

A complex series.

W1: mag(zfreq({1}, {1, -0.5, 0.6}))

setxlog(w1, 1);setylog(w1, 1);

gridsol;gridhv;scales(2)

W1 contains 2048 uniformly spaced samples of the magnitude of the frequency response of the

The frequency samples range from 0 to 0.5 Hz.

W1: zfreq( {1}, {1, -0.5, 0.6}, 0..1/200..0.5)

Same as the previous example, except the complex response is returned and explicit frequencies (in Hertz) are specified.

W2: zfreq( {1}, {0.5, -0.6} )

Since the leading pole coefficient is not 1.0, the coefficients are assumed to be in difference equation form, i.e. the coefficients represent the system:

The

W1: zfreq( {1}, {1, -0.5, 0.6}, 1024, 1.0, 1 )

Same as the first example, except the 1024 samples of the frequency response are evaluated over the entire unit circle, i.e. the frequency samples range from 0.0 to 1.0 Hz.

ZFREQ uses the FFT method to evaluate the specified number of uniformly spaced samples over the unit circle of a

N |

number of numerator terms |

M |

number of denominator terms |

This form represents the following difference equation:

If the leading term of the denominator is not 1.0,

or equivalently:

For zfreq(c, N, Fs, whole), the input c is assumed to be a single column of coefficients in cascaded

or equivalently:

where G is the system gain, b_{k} and a_{k} are the filter coefficients for the k^{th} stage.

If c contains 2 columns, the coefficients are assumed to be in direct form, where the first column is b and the second column is a.

ZFREQ returns a complex series. Use MAG or PHASE to obtain the magnitude and/or phase components separately.
