This is an interactive filter design package, for designing digital filters. Fill in the form and press the ``Submit'' button, and a filter will be designed for you. You can specify the following types of filter:
The ``C'' code generated by this package is the way it is for pedagogic reasons, and could easily be ``tightened up''.
The source code (in C++) for the programs that do the work (i.e. not the WWW front end) is available for browsing or down-loading, and PostScript documentation for these programs is available. If your browser uses GhostView to display PostScript, select ``magstep -1'' and ``paper A4'' for best effect.
The graphs are produced with the help of the excellent gd GIF manipulation library, originally from Quest Protein Database Center.
Here are some references to textbooks which will tell you about digital filters, the differences between the various types, the bilinear transform method, etc.
