A Simple and Versatile Fourier Domain Digital Filter

Volume 30, Number 1 (Feb. 1976) Page 23-27

Betty, Keith R.; Horlick, Gary

A number of signal processing operations can be carried out on spectra using a digital filter based on a simple trapezoid function. The filter is applied to the Fourier transform of the spectral signal. Several signal processing examples are presented to illustrate the capabilities of this filter. These examples include filtering and diagnosis of high frequency noise on a signal, removal of fixed frequency noise, minimization of quantization noise, and differentiation and approximate deconvolution for the purpose of resolution enhancement.
