Signal Addition function in MATLAB

You can make a signal addition function in Matlab and can use it as a calling function in any operations, codes and files in Matlab. To do this simply open and create a new Script (.m file) in Matlab.

  1. Open MATLAB << Then on the top left corner click on the File option << Click New << Then click Script
  2. Now write the following Matlab code given below of signal addition function into the new script (.m file) and save the file in the Matlab directory with any name you want.



function [y n] = sigadd(x1,n1,x2,n2)
if n1(1)< n2(1)
a = n1(1)
x1 = [zeros(1,abs(n1(1)-n2(1))) x1]

a = n2(1)
x1 = [zeros(1,abs(n1(1)-n2(1))) x1]
if n1(end)>n2(end)
b = n1(end)
x2 = [x2 zeros(1,abs(n1(end)-n2(end)))]
b = n2(end)
x2 = [x2 zeros(1,abs(n1(end)-n2(end)))]
n = a:b;
y = x1+x2;



Now, here I’m gonna give you an example of how we can use our sigadd function which we created in any operations or files in Matlab. For this create a new file and write the following input code given below and run.



x1 = [1 2 3 4 5];
n1 = 1:5;
n2 = 1:5;
x2 = [2 4 6 8 10];
[y n] = sigadd(x1,n1,x2,n2)




a =


x1 =

     1     2     3     4     5

b =


x2 =

     2     4     6     8    10

g =

     3     6     9    12    15

n =

     1     2     3     4     5
