# dsp.SOSFilter

## Description

The `dsp.SOSFilter`

System object™ implements an IIR filter structure using second-order sections (SOS).

To implement an IIR filter structure using SOS:

Create the

`dsp.SOSFilter`

object and set its properties.Call the object with arguments, as if it were a function.

To learn more about how System objects work, see What Are System Objects?

This object supports C/C++ code generation and SIMD code generation under certain
conditions. This object also supports code generation for ARM^{®}
Cortex^{®}-M and ARM
Cortex-A processors. For more information, see Code Generation.

## Creation

### Description

returns a biquadratic
IIR filter System object, `sos`

= dsp.SOSFilter`sos`

, which independently filters each channel (column)
of the input over time using a specified biquadratic structure.

returns a biquadratic filter object with the `sos`

= dsp.SOSFilter(`num`

,`den`

)`Numerator`

property set
to `num`

and the `Denominator`

property set to
`den`

.

returns a biquadratic filter object with each property set to the specified value. Enclose
each property name in single quotes.`sos`

= dsp.SOSFilter(`Name,Value`

)

**Example: **```
sos = dsp.SOSFilter('CoefficientSource','Input
port')
```

## Properties

Unless otherwise indicated, properties are *nontunable*, which means you cannot change their
values after calling the object. Objects lock when you call them, and the
`release`

function unlocks them.

If a property is *tunable*, you can change its value at
any time.

For more information on changing property values, see System Design in MATLAB Using System Objects.

## Examples

### Remove High-Frequency Noise Using Biquad SOS Filter

Lowpass filter a noisy sinusoidal signal using the `dsp.SOSFilter`

System object. Visualize the original and filtered signals using a spectrum analyzer.

**Input Signal**

The input signal is a sinusoidal signal with two tones, one at 1 kHz and the other at 3 kHz. The sampling frequency is 8 kHz.

f1 = 1000; f2 = 3000; Fs = 8000; sine = dsp.SineWave(Frequency=[f1,f2],... SampleRate=Fs,... SamplesPerFrame=1024);

**Create Biquad SOS Filter**

Design a 10th-order lowpass Butterworth IIR filter with a cutoff frequency of 2 kHz. The numerator and denominator coefficients are extracted from the designed SOS matrix.

```
Fcutoff = 2000;
[z,p,k] = butter(10,Fcutoff/(Fs/2));
[s, g] = zp2sos(z,p,k);
[num,den] = sos2ctf(s);
sosFilter = dsp.SOSFilter(num,den,...
ScaleValues=g)
```

sosFilter = dsp.SOSFilter with properties: Structure: 'Direct form II transposed' CoefficientSource: 'Property' Numerator: [5x3 double] Denominator: [5x3 double] HasScaleValues: true ScaleValues: [0.0029 1 1 1 1 1] Use get to show all properties

Visualize the frequency response of the designed SOS filter.

freqz(sosFilter,[],8000)

**Streaming**

Add zero-mean white Gaussian noise with a standard deviation of 0.1 to the sum of sine waves. Filter the noisy sinusoidal signal with the designed SOS filter.

While running the simulation, the spectrum analyzer shows that the high-frequency tone above 2 kHz in the source signal is attenuated. The resulting signal maintains the peak at 1 kHz because it falls in the passband of the lowpass filter.

SA = spectrumAnalyzer(... PlotAsTwoSidedSpectrum=false, ... SampleRate=Fs, ... ShowLegend=true,... YLimits=[-200 100],... ChannelNames={'Input signal','Filtered signal'}); % Stream processing loop for k = 1:100 input = sum(sine(),2) + 0.1.*randn(sine.SamplesPerFrame,1); filteredOutput = sosFilter(input); SA(input,filteredOutput); end

This is the structure of each section in the filter when you set the filter structure to
`Direct form I`

.

This is the structure of the filter with *P* sections when you specify scale
values [*g*_{1},
*g*_{2}, …,
*g*_{P+1}].

This is the structure of the filter when you do not specify scale values.

**Direct Form I Transposed**

This is the structure of each section in the filter when you set the filter structure to
`Direct form I transposed`

.

This is the structure of the filter with *P* sections when you
specify scale values [*g*_{1},
*g*_{2}, …,
*g*_{P+1}].

This is the structure of the filter when you do not specify scale values.

**Direct Form II**

This is the structure of each section in the filter when you set the filter structure to
`Direct form II`

.

specify scale values [*g*_{1},
*g*_{2}, …,
*g*_{P+1}].

This is the structure of the filter when you do not specify scale values.

**Direct Form II Transposed**

This is the structure of each section in the filter when you set the filter structure to
`Direct form II transposed`

.

*P* sections when you
specify scale values [*g*_{1},
*g*_{2}, …,
*g*_{P+1}].

This is the structure of the filter when you do not specify scale values.

### Filter Structures with Fixed-Point Settings

These diagrams show the data types used in the SOS filter when the input is fixed-point. For each structure the filter supports, the data types shown in the diagrams can be set through the respective fixed-point settings.

**Direct Form I**

Here is the structure of each section when you set the filter structure to
`Direct form I`

. This diagram shows the data types when you
input fixed-point signals. The gain operations
*b _{0}*,

*b*,

_{1}*b*,

_{2}*a*, and

_{1}*a*operate in full precision.

_{2}These diagrams show the fixed-point data types between filter sections.

When the data is not optimized:

When you specify scale values to 1:

**Direct Form I Transposed**

Here is the structure of each section when you set the filter structure to
`Direct form I transposed`

. This diagram shows the data types
when you input fixed-point signals. The dashed casts are omitted when you set
`HasScaleValues`

to `false`

. The gain operations
*b _{0}*,

*b*,

_{1}*b*,

_{2}*a*, and

_{1}*a*operate in full precision.

_{2}`HasScaleValues`

to `false`

, the data type at the
section output is automatically determined by the object algorithm and is not controlled
by the value of the `SectionOutputDataType`

property.These diagrams show the fixed-point data types between filter sections.

## Extended Capabilities

### C/C++ Code Generation

Generate C and C++ code using MATLAB® Coder™.

Usage notes and limitations:

See System Objects in MATLAB Code Generation (MATLAB Coder).

The `dsp.SOSFilter`

System object supports optimized C code generation on ARM
Cortex-M processors and SIMD code generation under these conditions:

Input is a single-channel real-valued signal.

Data type of the input is

`single`

.When you set

`Structure`

to`'Direct form I'`

or`'Direct form II transposed'`

.When you set

`HasScaleValues`

to`false`

.In the case of code generation for ARM Cortex-M processors, set

`HasScaleValues`

to`false`

after setting`CoefficientSource`

to`'Input port'`

.

The SIMD technology significantly improves the performance of the generated code. For more information, see SIMD Code Generation. To generate SIMD code from this object, see Use Intel AVX2 Code Replacement Library to Generate SIMD Code from MATLAB Algorithms.

## Version History

**Introduced in R2020a**

### R2023b: The `designfilt`

function and the Design Filter Live Editor task support `dsp.SOSFilter`

object

The `designfilt`

function generates a
`dsp.SOSFilter`

object when you specify `'lowpassiir'`

and `'highpassiir'`

filter responses and set the
`'SystemObject'`

flag to `'true'`

.

hpIIRFilter = designfilt('highpassiir', ... 'FilterOrder',20,'StopbandFrequency',3000, ... 'PassbandFrequency',8000,'SampleRate',44100, ... 'Norm',120,'SystemObject',true)

hpIIRFilter = dsp.SOSFilter with properties: Structure: 'Direct form II' CoefficientSource: 'Property' Numerator: [10×3 double] Denominator: [10×3 double] HasScaleValues: true ScaleValues: [0.4745 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1.6434]

The Design
Filter Live Editor task generates a `dsp.SOSFilter`

object
for lowpass IIR and highpass IIR filter responses when you select the **Use a System
object to implement filter** check box in the task UI and run the
`designfilt`

code the task generates.

### R2022b: Optimized C code generation for `dsp.SOSFilter`

object on ARM Cortex-M processors

In R2022b, you can generate optimized C code for the `dsp.SOSFilter`

object
on ARM
Cortex-M processors under certain conditions. For more details, see Code Generation.
