AbstractThe family of FIR digital filters with maximally flat magnitude and group delay response is considered. The filters were proposed by Baher, who furnished them with an analytic procedure for derivation of their transfer function. The contributions of this paper are the following. A simplified formula is presented for the transfer function of the filters. The equivalence of the novel formula with a formula that is derived from Baher's analytical procedure is proved using a modern method for automatic proof of identities involving binomial coefficients. The universality of Baher's filters is then established by proving that they include linear-phase filters, generalized half-band filters, and fractional delay systems. In this way, several classes of maximally flat filters are unified under a single formula. The generating function of the filters is also derived. This enables us to develop multiplierless cellular array structures for exact realization of a subset of the filters. The subset that enjoys such multiplierless realizations includes linear-phase filters, some nonsymmetric filters, and generalized halfband filters. A procedure for designing the cellular array structures is also presented.
