Finite Impulse Response Filters

The filtering of digitized data, if not the most fundamental, is certainly the oldest discipline in the field of digital signal processing. Digital filtering's origins go back 50 years. The growing availability of digital computers in the early 1950s led to efforts in the smoothing of discrete sampled data and the analysis of discrete data control systems. However it wasn't until the early to mid-1960s, around the time the Beatles came to America, that the analysis and development of digital equivalents of analog filters began in earnest. That's when digital signal processing experts realized that computers ...
