Design of Recursive Digital Filters

  • Trevor J. Terrell


Recursive digital filters are commonly referred to as infinite impulse response (IIR) filters. The term recursive intrinsically means that the output of the digital filter, y(n)T, is computed using the present input, x(n)T, and previous inputs and outputs, namely, x(n − 1)T, x(n − 2)T,…,y(n − 1)T, y(n − 2)T,…, respectively.
