Design custom filter for Analog Devices AD936x RF chip



designCustomFilter(x) opens the ADI filter wizard application. Use the ADI filter wizard to change the default filter design applied to the filter chain in the receiver or transmitter System object™ specified by x. The wizard enables you to design a custom filter for the Analog Devices® AD936x RF chip based on the BasebandSampleRate property of the object. You can adjust and optimize the settings for calculating the analog filters, the interpolation and decimation filters, and the FIR coefficients.

If the gain or bandwidth characteristics of the default filter does not satisfy the requirements for your application, use the ADI filter wizard to design a custom filter that meets your specific requirements.
