Filter Design
9.4 2D FIR Filter Design Methods
A common method of obtaining 2D filters is to obtain them indirectly by transforming 1D prototypes. The simplest method imposes rectangular symmetry on the resulting 2D filter by taking the outer product of two 1D filters. Its impulse response is separable and may be written as a product of two 1D impulse responses.

In order to obtain a circularly symmetric 2D filter from a 1D prototype, the common approach is to use the McClellan transformation or simply the frequency transformation [
McC73a
]. The resulting filters have good performance, circular symmetry, and under a restricted set of conditions, have been shown to be optimal.

In[1]:=
Here we use the McClellan transformation to transform a 1D equiripple filter to a circularly symmetric 2D filter. The prototype filter is lowpass.
In[2]:=
This calculates the magnitude spectrum of the 2D lowpass filter using a 64-point DFT.
In[3]:=
This plots the magnitude spectrum.
In[4]:=
Out[4]=
A rectangularly supported 2D FIR filter based on the same 1D prototype has the following magnitude response.
In[5]:=
We can now view the magnitude spectrum of this filter by computing a 64-point DFT of the 2D sequence.

A direct method of designing 2D FIR filters is available by using windows. Design of 2D FIR filters using the window method is similar to its 1D counterpart. The infinite impulse response sequence is obtained from the ideal, desired frequency response by means of the inverse DTFT. Closed-form solutions exist for the 2D impulse response sequences of circularly symmetric filters [
Dud84
]. For example, the infinite impulse response sequence of the ideal, circularly symmetric lowpass filter is given by

For example, the infinite impulse response sequence of the ideal, circularly symmetric lowpass filter is given by
where J

(.) is the Bessel function of the first kind of order 1,
_{C}
is the cutoff frequency, and
. A circularly symmetric highpass filter has an impulse response given by
where J
_{1}
(.) is the Bessel function of the first kind of order 1,
_{C}
is the cutoff frequency, and
. Other types of piecewise constant bandpass filters may be constructed from combinations of lowpass and highpass impulse responses. The impulse response is next truncated and smoothed with an appropriate window sequence.
