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

Course objectives

After completion of the course the student must demonstrate the ability to:
- Design and analyse a FIR- or IIR-filter using computer-aided design tools for calculating the filter parameters,
- apply and analyse principles for different ways of realising time-discrete digital filters,
- apply and analyse method for floating point to fixed point conversion of computations in digital filters,
- apply and analyse method for modelling, simulation and evaluation of impacts from quantization due to fixed point computations.


Time- and amplitude discrete filters, FIR-filters, IIR-filters, realisation, stability, computer-aided computation of filter parameters and computer aided modelling and simulation of impact from quantization in filters realized by fixed point computations.
