The concept of "structurally bounded" or "structurally passive" FIR filter implementation is introduced, as a means of achieving very low passband sensitivities. The resulting filter structures, called FIRBR structures, can easily be transformed into very low-sensitivity "passive" two-dimensional FIR filter structures. From a layout point of view, the new structures are not any more complicated than the well-known cascade form. The FIRBR structures do not depend, for synthesis, upon continuous-time filter circuits.
