The course aims to provide a deeper understanding of the theory of digital filters and gives practical skills to implement digital filters using computer systems.

Course objectives

After completion of the course the student must demonstrate the ability to:
- Design a FIR- or IIR-filter using computer-aided design tools for calculating the filter parameters,
- Apply the principles for different ways of realising time-discrete digital filters,
- Apply the principles and limitations at sampling and re-construction of time-continous signals.


Time- and amplitude discrete filters, FIR-filters, IIR-filters, realisation, stability, computer-aided computation of filter parameters, and reconstruction of time-continuous signals that has been sampled.

Entry requirements

Electrical Engineering, 60 Credits (60 ECTS) including digital electronics and analogue electronics, and Mathematics 15 Credits (15 ECTS) including differential and integral calculus, transforms, and basic mathematical statistics.
