The FDSZ program

The FDSZ program designs continuous-time and discrete-time filters (IIR), using several classical approximations. It also allows a generalized design procedure that can generate filters in a continuous range from the Butterworth to the Cauer approximations.

Discrete-time (digital) filters can be obtained from continuous-time approximations by the bilinear or LDI transformations. The program can also design a biquad cascade filter from the approximations. For digital filters, it computes also the multiplier values for a particular low-sensitivity structure.

The program was developed as a tool for the study of approximations for filters, and to generate digital filters to be used for the off-line processing of signal samples (the filtering program AnaWave is available below).

The use of the FDSZ program is free for academic or educational purposes.
