Well also briefly discuss the advantages of fir filters over iir designs, e. The ability to have an exactly linear phase response is the one of the most important of fir filters. The following two plots show a fir filter with the same magnitude response but with a flat or linear phase. The result is that all frequency components of the input signal are shifted in time usually delayed by the same constant amount the slope of the linear function, which is referred to as the group delay. This way the filter degree can often be reduced considerably compared to exactly linear phase fir filters. Fir filters with generalized linear phase can have even or odd order and even or odd symmetry, resulting in four different types.
