I need a digital filter or sequence of digital filters with the following response: Amplitude flat across all frequencies up to the Nyquist (folding) frequency. Phase starts at 0 degrees at low fregs linearly increases with frequency until it is 180 at the Nyquist (folding) frequency. I was thinking about do this with FFT e.g. multiply the spectrum by exp(j*phi*omega). Are there other ways of doing this? Thank you

It doesn't exist. If you change the requirements in certain ways, like only requiring the response you give up to a small fraction of the Nyquist frequency, then it may be possible to find a reasonable approximation to the spec, but that's probably not what you really want. You would be better off telling us about your application and the practical difficulty.

A lead of the same amount requires that the output appear one sample time before it has been input. Very hard!

Are there other ways of doing this?This is a trick question, think simple. I shouldnt even be telling you that, since it is obviously homework ... but hell, I needed to read it a couple of times before I saw through it so I feel for you. Marco

This is not a homework problem, nor am I in school. I posted because I had a need.

One sample time is 180 degrees at Fs/2, 90 degrees at Fs/4, and so on*. Delay is doable. Constant delay is easy. Prediction is impossible. So what problem are you trying to address?.

Who the hell do we think we are making judgements like that? As far as I'm concerned a question is a question. Even if a student wants to use this resource on a problem that has him stumped or is just being lazy that's on him and he'll pay the price. Or not. None of my goddamn business.

None of my goddamn business. > > > BobPlease note that I made no judgment of any kind. My aim was pointing out that Marco wasn't completely unjustified. We have a collective problem. Most of us agree that handing out homework answers doesn't help the student or the profession in the long run. When a question seems like homework (as did this one with its sophisticated statement and an elementary solution) we can ignore it, ask the OP, take it at face value (as I did), or answer with a sneer (viz. Marco). Most of agree that obfuscation and hazing are inappropriate. The other options all have lesser faults.
