I need to design a high pass FIR filter based on parameters given. However I'm stuck at which window i should select. How do I calculate the parameter M?

The guide I referred myself to was behind this link: https://www.allaboutcircuits.com/technical-articles/design-examples-of-fir-filters-using-window-method/

  • $\begingroup$ The window length. In the article you proposed, they select M by figuring the minimum window length necessary to have the desired precision. Since there is some benefits in using odd size window length they add 1 to get 41 while minimum size found was 40 $\endgroup$ – Pier-Yves Lessard Apr 9 '18 at 0:07
  • $\begingroup$ In the previous article you can see that the transition band ($\omega_s- \omega_p$) can be used as an estimate of the required main lobe width and therefore find the window length from the given table. e.g. Hann window with transition band of $0.2\pi$ $$\frac{8\pi}{M}=\omega_s- \omega_p$$ $$\frac{8\pi}{M}=0.2\pi$$ $$M=40$$ $\endgroup$ – Crypted_39 Apr 9 '18 at 14:15
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for the answers. They were really clear. Didn't figure out to solve that for M! $\endgroup$ – Tijam Moradi Apr 10 '18 at 12:09
