Filtering Guassian noise with Matlab

  1. Dec 2, 2005 #1
    I’m generating a 1 kHz square wave and adding Guassian noise to obtain a SNR of 0 dB (using Matlab6.5). The task is to design a filter that will filter out as much noise as possible from the square wave plus noise signal.
    The sampling frequency is 100kHz.
    Noise signal: 100.0*randn(1, length(t))
    Square wave: 100*square(2*pi*1000*t)
    What else do I need to know in order to design this filter using Butterworth or Chebyshev I or any filter? How do I determine the cut-off frequency for my filter?
    The MATLAB function filter(B,A,x) will be used for the time-domain filtering operation.
    I've started out by considering the frequency characteristics of each signal, but don't know how that will help i the design process.
    Any help will be greatly appreciated.
