Suppose i have all my poles in unit circle center. What kind of information this gives me?

Can i determine if this filter is IIR or FIR?

enter image description here


If you have $N$ poles at $z=0$ this means that your transfer function has the form


where $P(z)$ is a polynomial. What does this tell you about the filter type? (Hint: write $H(z)$ as a sum of positive and negative powers of $z$).

  • $\begingroup$ If you put it that way, it must be FIR filter, because Z^-13 = 1. $\endgroup$
