Decimation/Down sampling MATLAB source code

This section of MATLAB source code covers decimation or down sampling matlab code. It covers basics of decimation/down sampling.

Decimation refers to removing samples in between the existing vector of values. By doing so sample rate of the signal or vector will decrease hence it is referred as down sampling the signal.

Setting up exponential vector to be down sampled

%Setting up exponential signal vector to be down sampled
clc;
clear all;
N=input('Enter length of the output sequence:');
M=input('Enter down sampling factor:');
a=input('Enter the value of base of exponent function:');
n=0:N-1;
m=0:N*M-1;
x=a.^m;

Downsampling the exponential vector

% Generate the downsampled signal
y=x([1:M:length(x)]);
figure,stem(n,x(1:N));xlabel({'Samples in time';'(a)'});ylabel('magnitude');title('Decimator input');
figure,stem(n,y);xlabel({'Samples in time';'(b)'});ylabel('magnitude');title('down sampled output');

Downsampling using decimate matlab function

% Generate the downsampled signal using decimate function
y=decimate(x,M,'fir');
m=0:N/M-1;
figure,stem(m,y(1:N/M));title('MATLAB decimate function output');xlabel('Time');ylabel('magnitude');
