A brief update on the new features added to the filter design tool
--IIR Filter Design (Scipy Based)
--Pole-zero plot now supports addition, deletion of poles/zeros with conjugate support.
A small video showing some of the added features can be found here.
At first I started using Robert McGwier's existing code and added features to that as suggested by Tom and Martin. Later finding that Scipy's filter design functions are very much optimized and robust, I decided to use those. Martin also pointed out that it will
just be a duplication of work and suggested me to use scipy for IIR design.
I did a basic integration of the code to gr-filter component of GNU Radio. I haven't pushed icons yet to the branch. It would be really helpful if anyone can comment on the current integration, so that I can make suitable modifications.
In next few weeks I will be adding some special filters like half-band filter to the design tool, then will proceed with integration of gr_filter_design to GRC and will try to add QA tests for filter design routines wherever they are missing.
