A ninth-order symmetrical filter has been developed for use in two-dimensional (2-D) processing in TV video systems, especially in high-definition TV receivers. A 2-D filter that is composed of only two types of LSIs (one-dimensional (1-D) digital filter LSI and delay-line) is discussed. The architecture of the digital filter LSI and circuit techniques are presented to obtain high-speed operation, to save chip area, and to decrease power consumption. The order and the transfer function of the filter can be altered by means of the external terminals. The chip, achieved through 2-μm CMOS technology, contains about 52000 transistors and occupies an area of 50 mm/SUP 2/. It operates at a high clock frequency of over 33 MHz, and dissipates only 600 mW of power.
