Example Allpass Filters

- The simplest allpass filter is a unit-modulus gain
- A lossless FIR filter can consist only of a single nonzero tap:
- The transfer function of every finite-order, causal,
lossless IIR digital filter (recursive allpass filter) can be written as

where , , and . The polynomial can be obtained by reversing the order of the coefficients in and conjugating them. (The factor serves to restore negative powers of and hence causality.)
