Igor Filter Design Laboratory is included with Igor Pro® 8

The full version of IFDL 4 has been built into Igor Pro® 8.

Adding IFDL to Earlier Versions of Igor

IFDL can be added to earlier versions of Igor by purchasing IFDL separately. Contact sales@wavemetrics.com to purchase this additional software.


The IFDL Demo is version 3.1, which allows you to design your own Kaiser Low Pass filters and other Window Filters, and apply them to your data. It does not include IIR filter designs.

You can compare the responses of two filters, save the filter coefficients for use in other programs, and print a report showing a filter's response and coefficient values.

Pre-computed examples of McClellan-Parks-Rabiner (MPR) filters and Kaiser Maximal Flatness filters are provided.

The demo version ignores changes to the design parameters for these filter types.
