Designing an FIR filter, or any other kind of filter.

Since creating a filter design would be a very smal portion of my job activities, I would need to find some source of the design, either published or for sale. So presentations like this do wind up being a very useful resource on many occasions.

DFT of coefficients

Jon,

I didn't know that performing an FFT on the filter coefficients would produce the same characteristic as the filter.  That is interesting.  I have always used software to produce the coefficients, and somewhat trusted the output.  I do usually verify the overall gain by summing the coefficients, however.

It seems that the FFT output produced by 65 coefficients of 0.015625 is skewed by the zero padding.  I would expect the FFT of a constant value to have all energy content to appear in the 0Hz bin, and absolutely nothing in the other frequency bins.  By padding it out to 128 points with zeroes, you have essentially created a square wave with approximately a 50% duty cycle, and the FFT result looks like it (the odd harmonic content).
