Master the most common analog and digital filter design and implementation methods with this hands-on new resource. The book explains in practical terms all the important derivations so you can apply them directly to your own filter design problems. Not only does it detail analog active and digital IIR and FIR filter design, the book also thoroughly treats implementation issues to steer you away from common design pitfalls. You learn how to design digital IIR filters using the bilinear transform and digital FIR filters utilizing both windowing and Parks-McClellan optimization techniques. This book even explains the application of the fast Fourier transform in filtering digital signals. The accompanying CD-ROM makes analog filter simulation easy through PSpice circuit description files that include R-C components calculated directly from the filter coefficients. CD-ROM Included! Contains Windows-base filter design, analysis, and implementation software so you can immediately apply filter theory to actual filter development. Also includes proven C code functions.
