Legacy Name: impz


Computes the impulse response of a filter. If you do not request an output, this function plots the impulse response in the current plot window.



Name Description
b Specifies the forward filter coefficients. b is a real vector.
a Specifies the backward filter coefficients. a is a real vector. The default is [1].
n Specifies the number of equidistant points for which to compute an impulse response. If you specify [] for n, LabVIEW determines the number of points automatically. If you do not specify n, LabVIEW determines the number of points according to a. n is a nonnegative integer or a vector of such numbers.
f Specifies the distance d between equidistant points, where d = 1/f. f is a positive real number.


Name Description
r Returns the impulse response of the filter defined by a and b. r is a real vector.
t Returns the time values of the impulse response. t is a real vector.


The following table lists the support characteristics of this function.

Supported in the LabVIEW Run-Time Engine Yes (if you request output)
Supported on RT targets Yes (if you request output)
Suitable for bounded execution times on RT Not characterized


b = [1];
a = [1, 0.2, -0.02, 1];
n = 10;
f = 2;
[R, T] = impzd(b, a, n, f)
