What is a lens?

Definition of a lens

Lenses

A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

What are tags? tag icon

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.

Definition of an open lens

Any member is allowed to add content to an open lens, even if the lens belongs to someone else. You can think of open lenses as lists of similar works related to the same subject, authored by various collaborating organizations or members. Content added to open lenses is reviewed for approval or deletion from the lens.

Notes on the Design of Optimal FIR Filters

Collection Properties

Summary: A recurring technical task development of digital signal processing products and systems is the design of FIR digital filters. Fortunately some excellent software packages exist for the automatic synthesis of impulse responses for such filters, many of them based on the now-famous Parks-McClellan algorithm. Unfortunately, there is still some mystery about how to use the software and, equally important, how to estimate impulse response lengths short of actually designing the filter itself. This technical note primarily addresses the second problem and indirectly discusses a bit the first. We examine here how to convert a typical filter specification in terms of cutoff frequency, passband ripple, etc., into a reasonably accurate estimate of the length of the impulse response. Not only does this estimate suffice for most design tradeoff exercises, it usually allows the Parks-McClellan routines to be employed only once or twice rather than the multiple times needed when the “cut-and-try" method is used.
