Finite impulse response (FIR) filter is the key functional block in DSP (Digital Signal Processing) designs and nearly always form the starting point for analyzing an architecture. This paper contains a new filter architecture, along with FPGA- Virtex-4 (Xilinx) and XtremeDSP (DSP48) slice. The XtremeDSP slice is a high performance multiplier and arithmetic unit with great flexibility that can form the building block of DSP algorithms implemented in FPGAs. Traditional adder-tree approach limited the performance and extensibility of given filter implementation. By using adder-chain style of implementation these limitations are lifted. A novel approach in both design and implementation of digital FIR filter using the DSP system element of Virtex-4 (Xilinx) architecture – XtremeDSP (DSP48) slice is presented. Embedded nature of the XtremeDSP slice has a radical impact on reducing the power consumed by high-speed multiply and add function.
