Based on a well-known property of FIR half-band filters, this correspondence shows how the design time for equiripple half-band filters can be reduced by a considerable amount. The observation which leads up to this improved procedure also places in evidence new implementation schemes, which simultaneously ensure low passband and stopband sensitivities. Extension of the method to Mth-band filter design is also outlined.
