Finite impulse response (FIR) filter design applet
Use the following applet to design finite impulse response filters for discrete digital signals. Instructions are provided below.
Instructions
 Use the first dropdown box to select the type of filter that you want to use: low pass, high pass, band pass, or band stop.
 Specify the sampling frequency of the signal. Any sampling frequency between 2 KHz and 100 KHz is allowed.
 Specify the filter length, which should usually be an odd number.
 Specify the cutoff / transition frequency of the filter, which could be as low as 20 Hz and as high as half of the sampling frequency.
 If the filter is a band pass filter or a band stop filter, specify the second transition frequency. The applet expects that the second transition frequency is larger than the first one.
 Specify the window function type in the last dropdown box (e.g., rectangular, Hann, Hamming, etc.). Note that some windows (e.g., flat top, BlackmanHarris) have large transition bands by design and that they may have other properties that make them useful (the flat top window, for example, has very small ripples in the pass band).
The applet will automatically redraw its graphs and will recompute the filter coefficients whenever a change to the filter data is made. The filter coefficients are printed at the bottom of the applet.

Notes
 Version 1.0.0 of this applet was posted on 2010 09 07.
 Version 1.0.1 of 2010 12 02 corrects for rounding errors in the computation of the BartlettHann window. The errors produced a window that was not properly normalized and introduced loss of amplitude along the whole frequency spectrum.
 Version 1.0.2 corrects errors in the computation of the zeroeth order modified Bessel function of the first kind for the Kaiser window. This version was posted on 2011 01 04.
