downsample

Decrease sampling rate by integer factor

Syntax

y = downsample(x,n)
y = downsample(x,n,phase)

Description

y = downsample(x,n) decreases the sampling rate of x by keeping every nth sample starting with the first sample. x can be a vector or a matrix. If x is a matrix, each column is considered a separate sequence.

y = downsample(x,n,phase) specifies the number of samples by which to offset the downsampled sequence. phase must be an integer from 0 to n – 1.

Examples

Decrease Sampling Rates

Decrease the sampling rate of a sequence by 3.

x = [1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10];
y = downsample(x,3)
y =

     1     4     7    10

Decrease the sampling rate of the sequence by 3 and add a phase offset of 2.

y = downsample(x,3,2)
y =

     3     6     9

Decrease the sampling rate of a matrix by 3.

x = [ 1  2  3;
      4  5  6;
      7  8  9;
     10 11 12];
y = downsample(x,3)
y =

     1     2     3
    10    11    12
