A new technique is presented for the design of digital FIR filters, with a prescribed degree of flatness in the passband, and a prescribed (equiripple) attenuation in the stopband. The design is based entirely on an appropriate use of the well-known Reméz-exchange algorithm for the design of weighted Chebyshev FIR filters. The extreme versatility of this algorithm is combined with certain "maximally flat" FIR filter building blocks, in order to generate a wide family of filters. The design technique directly leads to structures that have low passband sensitivity properties.
