scipy.signal.decimate¶

scipy.signal.
decimate
(x, q, n=None, ftype='iir', axis= 1, zero_phase=True)[source]¶ Downsample the signal after applying an antialiasing filter.
By default, an order 8 Chebyshev type I filter is used. A 30 point FIR filter with Hamming window is used if ftype is ‘fir’.
 Parameters
 xarray_like
The signal to be downsampled, as an Ndimensional array.
 qint
The downsampling factor. When using IIR downsampling, it is recommended to call
decimate
multiple times for downsampling factors higher than 13. nint, optional
The order of the filter (1 less than the length for ‘fir’). Defaults to 8 for ‘iir’ and 20 times the downsampling factor for ‘fir’.
 ftypestr {‘iir’, ‘fir’} or
dlti
instance, optional If ‘iir’ or ‘fir’, specifies the type of lowpass filter. If an instance of an
dlti
object, uses that object to filter before downsampling. axisint, optional
The axis along which to decimate.
 zero_phasebool, optional
Prevent phase shift by filtering with
filtfilt
instead oflfilter
when using an IIR filter, and shifting the outputs back by the filter’s group delay when using an FIR filter. The default value ofTrue
is recommended, since a phase shift is generally not desired.New in version 0.18.0.
 Returns
 yndarray
The downsampled signal.

resample
Resample up or down using the FFT method.
resample_poly
Resample using polyphase filtering and an FIR filter.
Notes
The
zero_phase
keyword was added in 0.18.0. The possibility to use instances ofdlti
asftype
was added in 0.18.0.
