Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper a new general method for approximation of arbitrary multiband filter loss specifications, including all classical, maximally flat and equiripple approximations as special cases, is proposed. It is possible to specify different magnitude behavior (flat or equiripple of given degree) and different maximal losses in the different passbands and to optimize all transmission and attenuation zeroes positions or to have some of them fixed. The optimization procedures for adjustment of the filter response are based on modified Remez algorithm and are performed in s-domain what is regarded since recently as an advantage in the case of design of parallel allpass structures based IIR digital filters. A powerful algorithm and appropriate software are developed following the method and their efficiency is verified through design examples.
