Moku:Lab’s FIR Filter Builder

Overview

With Moku:Lab’s FIR Filter Builder, you can design and implement lowpass, highpass, bandpass, and bandstop finite impulse response (FIR) filters with up to 14,819 coefficients at a sampling rate of 244.1 kHz. Moku:Lab’s iPad interface allows you to fine-tune your filter’s response in the frequency and time domains to suit your specific application. Select between four frequency response shapes, five common impulse responses, and up to eight window functions.

Software & APIs

Design and create advanced filters, all from intuitive Moku software for iPad, Windows, or with APIs for Python, MATLAB, and LabVIEW.

Freedom in the lab when you need it

Design, implement, and fine-tune your filters in real-time while you move freely through the lab with Moku software for iPad.

Try it in demo mode

Integrated oscilloscope

The on-board oscilloscope features sampling rates of up to 500 MSa/s. Monitor the signal at various points in the processing chain using probe points.

Create, adjust, and implement in real-time

Configure your filter by magnitude response, observe the resulting impulse/step response, and then apply the filter instantly.

Available on Moku:Lab hardware
