Discrete linear uniformly sampled digital filters are often employed in situations where there exists some preliminary linear analog continuous filtering operation. The latter continuous filter transfer function is usually a low-pass function that is required for such purposes as reducing the effects of aliasing, limiting the dynamic range of the signal prior to digitization, etc. The realization of is usually achieved quite independently of the realization of the subsequent discrete transfer function , where . In this contribution, it is shown that maximally flat solutions exist for the composite transfer function , so that it is possible to employ a simple baseband prefiliter which, combined with , results in an overall maximally flat low-pass response.
