Take a look at firpm() for an equiripple design, fir1() for a window method FIR design, fir2() uses frequency sampling, and firls() for least-squares error minimization as examples. Post back if you have difficulty, I'm not sure you really want the filter design you have above in fdesign.highpass (or I would have given you a comparable example) because you are basically just passing everthing. Your stopband frequency is only 0.03 Hz? (you have a sampling frequency of 10 kHz specified), your passband starts at 0.043 Hz...

Hi Alfredo, I am not sure what you mean by "period cycle" so I'll just give you an example of firpm() and hopefully you can make it meaningful.

firpm() works on a normalized frequency scale [0,1] with 1 being (1)pi radians per sample.

Let's assume you want a highpass filter for data sampled at 10 kHz where you pass everything above 2 kHz and cut everything off below 1.8 kHz.

In this case we have the passband frequency:
(2*2000)/10000=0.4
the stopband frequency is
(2*1800)/10000=0.36

So a simple call to design an equiripple FIR filter is:

h = firpm(150,[0 0.36 0.4 1],[0 0 1 1]);
% The impulse response of the filter is returned in h
% you can view the filter magnitude response
fvtool(h)

Hope that helps,
wayne
