### could anybody explains me why IIR filters do not have linear phase?

Please tell me. Also I dont know why phase is linear with FIR filters. I would like quantitative analysis. And why linear phase is not achieved by IIR filters ?

### Downsampling lowpass filter for audio: FIR or IIR?

I'm working on a real-time audio processing project in which I have to downsample a 44.1 kHz to a yet-to-be-determined lower sampling rate essentially for reducing computational complexity. I'm ...

### Why do linear phase filters have symmetric impulse responses?

It was given as a fact that linear phase filters have symmetric impulse responses, but I don't see why that has to be true. Can somebody please explain or prove this?

### Transform linear-phase FIR to minimum-phase FIR

Given a FIR filter (non-causal) with phase zero and real coefficients given by $$H(z) = \sum_{n=-M}^{M}h[n]z^{-n}$$ with ripple $\delta_2$. How can I obtain a filter $H_{{\rm min}}(z)$ of minimum ...

### Downsampling impact on complex phase

For my application, I have to downsample a bandpass complex signal which spectrum is located on the second Nyquist zone. Knowing that this processing will cause a spectrum inversion, what would be ...

### Transform minimum phase FIR into linear phase FIR

I've seen examples of transforming a linear phase FIR into a minimum phase FIR, but is there a simple process to transform a minimum phase FIR into a linear phase FIR? I would like to end up with a ...

### Causal and minimum phase

I have couple of questions? Is there a relationship between a FIR filter being minimum phase/mixed phase and being causal? Is there a relationship between a FIR filter being minimum phase/mixed phase ...

### What is the significance of the linear phase in the phase response of an M-point moving average filter?

I have plotted the magnitude and the phase responses of an M-point moving average filter, the following are the plots when M = 10: We can observe that corresponding to every lobe in the magnitude ...

### What is the phase response of SRRC/NRZ/RZ pulse shapping filters and does it matter?

So I would like to know if filters usually used for pulse shaping (like SRRC) have a linear phase response, and if not, what this response looks like and does it matters in any circumstances?

### If group delay is a constant for all $\omega$, Does this system have a linear phase response?

I want to know if a system has a linear phase response using frequency response of this system. So I got phase response of it and also group delay. and after that I got to know that if group delay ...

### Effect of zero padding an odd symmetric FIR filter in the time domain

I have a symmetric lowpass FIR filter with 1149 time domain taps (all real coefficients). For implementation purposes, it would be easier if the filter had 1200 taps. Since it has an odd number ...

### Phase is not linear in frequency domain after delay in time domain

When impulse response is symmetric around sample zero phase entirely zero. in = 0 , 0 , 0 , 0 , 1 , 1 , 1 , 1 , 0 , 0 , 0 -> This gives zero phase result As I know if I apply a delay in time ...

### Why does a simple delay system with $h[n]=\delta[n-n_0]$ have a linear phase?

Let's consider a simple delay system with impulse response $$h[n]=\delta[n-n_0]$$ We also know that it has linear phase with group delay of $n_0$ . In general, a FIR filter with symmetric (or anti-...

### linear phase and generalised linear phase filters

I know that for linear phase filters, all frequency components have equal delay times. That is, there is no distortion of signal due to the time delay of frequencies relative to one another. However,...

### How does one make a Zero Latency, Linear Phase, or Natural Phase filter?

Looking at FabFilter's ProQ3 plug-in, they have an option at the bottom of the window to switch between Zero Latency and Linear Phase modes (and I think a Natural Phase option too). I'm familiar with ...

### FIR Linear Phase Condition

This is the linear phase condition for FIR filters as expressed by my prof: I don't understand why $G(f)$ can be negative. Isn't the Fourier transform expressed in polar form ? So the magnitude is ...
