ellipord calculates the minimum order of a digital or analog elliptic filter required to meet a set of filter design specifications. Digital Domain[n,Wp] = ellipord(Wp,Ws,Rp,Rs) returns the lowest order, n, of the elliptic filter that loses no more than Rp dB in the passband and has at least Rs dB of attenuation in the stopband. The scalar (or vector) of corresponding cutoff frequencies Wp, is also returned. Use the output arguments n and Wp in ellip.Choose the input arguments to specify the stopband and passband according to the following table.Description of Stopband and Passband Filter ParametersParameterDescription WpPassband corner frequency Wp, the cutoff frequency, is a scalar or a two-element vector with values between 0 and 1, with 1 corresponding to the normalized Nyquist frequency, π radians per sample. WsStopband corner frequency Ws, is a scalar or a two-element vector with values between 0 and 1, with 1 corresponding to the normalized Nyquist frequency. RpPassband ripple, in decibels. This value is the maximum permissible passband loss in decibels. RsStopband attenuation, in decibels. This value is the number of decibels the stopband is attenuated with respect to the passband response. Use the following guide to specify filters of different types.Filter Type Stopband and Passband SpecificationsFilter TypeStopband and Passband ConditionsStopbandPassband LowpassWp < Ws, both scalars(Ws,1)(0,Wp) HighpassWp > Ws, both scalars(0,Ws)(Wp,1) BandpassThe interval specified by Ws contains the one specified by Wp (Ws(1) < Wp(1) < Wp(2) < Ws(2)).(0,Ws(1)) and (Ws(2),1)(Wp(1),Wp(2)) BandstopThe interval specified by Wp contains the one specified by Ws (Wp(1) < Ws(1) < Ws(2) < Wp(2)).(0,Wp(1)) and (Wp(2),1)(Ws(1),Ws(2)) If your filter specifications call for a bandpass or bandstop filter with unequal ripple in each of the passbands or stopbands, design separate lowpass and highpass filters according to the specifications in this table, and cascade the two filters together.Analog Domain[n,Wp] = ellipord(Wp,Ws,Rp,Rs,'s') finds the minimum order n and cutoff frequencies Wp for an analog filter. You specify the frequencies Wp and Ws similar to those described in the Description of Stopband and Passband Filter Parameters table above, only in this case you specify the frequency in radians per second, and the passband or the stopband can be infinite.Use ellipord for lowpass, highpass, bandpass, and bandstop filters as described in the Filter Type Stopband and Passband Specifications table above.

[n,Wp] = ellipord(Wp,Ws,Rp,Rs)[n,Wp] = ellipord(Wp,Ws,Rp,Rs,'s')

Lowpass Elliptic Filter OrderOpen This Example For 1000 Hz data, design a lowpass filter with less than 3 dB of ripple in the passband, defined from 0 to 40 Hz, and at least 60 dB of ripple in the stopband, defined from 150 Hz to the Nyquist frequency, 500 Hz. Find the filter order and cutoff frequency. Wp = 40/500; Ws = 150/500; Rp = 3; Rs = 60; [n,Wp] = ellipord(Wp,Ws,Rp,Rs) n = 4 Wp = 0.0800 Specify the filter in terms of second-order sections and plot the frequency response.[z,p,k] = ellip(n,Rp,Rs,Wp); sos = zp2sos(z,p,k); freqz(sos,512,1000) title(sprintf('n = %d Elliptic Lowpass Filter',n)) Bandpass Elliptic Filter OrderOpen This Example Design a bandpass filter with a passband from 60 Hz to 200 Hz with at most 3 dB of ripple and at least 40 dB attenuation in the stopbands. Specify a sampling rate of 1 kHz. Have the stopbands be 50 Hz wide on both sides of the passband. Find the filter order and cutoff frequencies. Wp = [60 200]/500; Ws = [50 250]/500; Rp = 3; Rs = 40; [n,Wp] = ellipord(Wp,Ws,Rp,Rs) n = 5 Wp = 0.1200 0.4000 Specify the filter in terms of second-order sections and plot the frequency response.[z,p,k] = ellip(n,Rp,Rs,Wp); sos = zp2sos(z,p,k); freqz(sos,512,1000) title(sprintf('n = %d Elliptic Bandpass Filter',n))
