Abstract
Many problems faced in the engineering world are computationally intensive. Filtering using FIR (Finite Impulse Response) filters is an example to that. This thesis discusses the implementation of a fast, reconfigurable, and scalable FIR (Finite Impulse Response) digital filter. Constant coefficient multipliers and a Fast FIFO implementation are also discussed in connection with the FIR filter. This filter is used in two of its structures: the direct-form and the lattice structure. The thesis describes several configurations that can be created with the different components available and reports the testing results of these configurations.
