FIR vs IIR Filters – A Practical Comparison

When it comes to practical applications, digital filter design is one of the most important topics in digital signal processing. Today we discuss a critical question encountered in filter design: how to compare the Finite Impulse Response (FIR) and Infinite Impulse Response (IIR) filters. Since there is no clear winner, answering this question enables a designer to choose the right solution for their product. A brief comparison of FIR vs IIR filters is now explained below. Computational Complexity It is well known that most practical signals are simply sums of sinusoids. This implies that signals with sharp transition in time
