On the Design of FIR Notch Filters

  • Suhash Chandra Dutta RoyEmail author


A novel approach for designing linear phase FIR notch filters has been proposed. Mathematical formulas for computing the weights required in the design have been derived. Exact notch frequency point, as specified, can be achieved through the proposed technique. Design examples have also been given.
