Adaptive usage of the butterworth digital filter

Erer, Koray S.
The Butterworth lowpass filter is a conventional tool that has been commonly used in gait analysis applications. Its operation mainly depends on the selection of the cut-off frequency, which must be done based on the condition of the raw signal assuming that it is stationary. This tool is unable to deal with nonstationary signals especially if impact is involved. In this paper, a modified version of the Butterworth filter that can handle nonstationary signals is presented. The new filter has a variable cut-off frequency distribution defined for each data point, which is determined by local signal characteristics. Because of its adaptive nature, it is possible for the filter to accommodate changes in the frequency content of the signal.


Waveguide filters with ridged and unequal width resonators
Yıldırım, Nevzat; Hizal, A (2005-06-17)
Analytical expressions are developed for characterization of ridged / finned waveguides for use in the design of direct coupled waveguide filters with ridged and / or unequal width resonators. The analytical expressions are used to control the harmonic passbands and higher order modes. A survey is made for comparison of responses of waveguide filters using unequal width resonators and unequal ridge resonators. it is found that ridged resonators are more effective in suppressing the spurious passbands in the...
Design of Selective Linear Phase Cross-Coupled Dielectric Resonator Filters
Ozturk, Onur Ozan; Oruc, Sacid; Alicioglu, Bulent; Yıldırım, Nevzat (2018-11-02)
In this paper, a highly selective linear phase filter is designed and implemented in cross-coupled form using dielectric resonators in Ku band to be used as a channel filter in IMUX of a satellite receiver. Extreme delay flatness is required: 1.5 nS delay ripple over 60 % of the passband and 12 nS near the band edges. The initial design is carried out as 10 resonator symmetric cross-coupled filter with all ideal inverter couplings realizing two finite transmission zeros (FTZ) satisfying also the delay flatn...
Dimensional Design of Dual Mode Waveguide Multiplexers
Boyacioglu, Gokhan; Alicioglu, Bulent; Yıldırım, Nevzat (2018-11-02)
In this paper, a systematic design procedure is described for manifold type multiplexers formed by the classical circular dual mode waveguide filters. The design procedure starts with cascade synthesis of lumped quadruplet version of the filters with inverter couplings. Then the LC resonators are converted into SC transmission line (SCTL) resonators. The whole circuit is then impedance scaled by inverters at ports for realization of resonators as waveguides with desired cross-sectional dimensions thus formi...
Non-linear filtering based on observations from Gaussian processes
Gustafsson, Fredrik; Saha, Saikat; Orguner, Umut (2011-03-12)
We consider a class of non-linear filtering problems, where the observation model is given by a Gaussian process rather than the common non-linear function of the state and measurement noise. The new observation model can be considered as a generalization of the standard one with correlated measurement noise in both time and space. We propose a particle filter based approach with a measurement update step that requires a memory of past observations which can be truncated using a moving window to obtain a fi...
Design of Microstrip Quadruplet Filters on Filpro
Oruc, Sacid; Yıldırım, Nevzat (2018-11-02)
In this paper, a simple dimensional design procedure is developed for microstrip/stripline quadruplet filters by starting with direct BP synthesis of a lumped quadruplet with inverter couplings, K14, K12, K23 and K34. K14 is the cross-coupling inverter which creates a symmetric pair of finite transmission zeros (FTZ's) if the sign of K14 is opposite of the other inverters while a complex TZ is created if K14 has the same sign as the other inverters leading to linear phase (flat delay) responses. The LC reso...
