In the decade 1960–1970 high speed digital computers developed rapidly and they became widely available for processing the digital representation of electrical waveforms. Consequently it became possible to use the basic established theoretical concepts of Fourier analysis, waveform sampling, Z-transforms, etc., in digital filter design. Hence digital filtering of electrical signals became a practical reality as computer technology developed.
