I have created a simulink model which had two filters implemented with an FIR block cascaded in series.enter image description here The first filter in my case is a moving average filter and the second one a Gaussian filter(being a special case of an FIR filter), which would obviously generate a delay ,Now my confusion is for the amount of delay it will produce. For symmetric coefficients for a single FIR filter it is (number of co-effcients)/2 but for a cascaded form would it be the (number of coeffcients of filter1 + number of coeffcients of filter2) /2 or (number of coeffcients)/2 +1 as there is one sample delay between both the filters assuming that the number of coefficients of both the filters are the same

  • \$\begingroup\$ Delay your input signal by the hypothesised delay, and compare with (or subtract from) the output. \$\endgroup\$ – Brian Drummond Oct 24 '16 at 12:06
  • \$\begingroup\$ @BrianDrummond thanks for your input , I will try that but I also want to understand the reason behind it if its either of those \$\endgroup\$ – Novice_Developer Oct 24 '16 at 12:08
