I am trying to use FFTW function for IFFT:
fftw_plan_dft_c2r_1d(size, out_cpx, out, FFTW_ESTIMATE).
My goal is to input desired frequency response data and obtain related coefficients using Inverse Fourier Transform. Since out_cpx is complex, I calculated magnitude (0,1) and phase, taking into account it is linear phase filter. Since I know the phase I calculated real and imaginary parts as Acos(w) and Asin(w) and with these pairs I populated out_cpx[i] and out_cpx[i]. When I perform Inverse Fourier Transform using fftw_plan_dft_c2r_1d() I assume I am right away getting FIR coefficients h[n] as the result. With these coefficients i go to MATLAB and get response using freqz(C,1) where C holds my coefficients. But I am getting a lot of ripples in my graph for response and for phase. Am I doing something wrong here? It is not clear to me how to specify phase of the desired frequency response.
