Optimal Factoring of FIR Filters

New insights suggest that the most efficient FIR digital filters can be created by using a scaled sequence of stages, each representing a factor of the filter’s transfer function.

A crucial capability for building such filters concerns finding the best FIR filter factors, then carefully scaling and sequencing them. The efficiency of the resulting structure depends heavily upon obtaining such optimal factors. We offer an algorithm to find, scale and sequence optimally factored FIR filters.
