  author={Jo{\~a}o Portela and Eduardo Costa and Jos{\'e} C. Monteiro},
This paper addresses the optimization of FIR filters for low power. We propose a search algorithm to find the combination of the number of taps and coefficient bit-width that leads to the minimum number of total partial sums, and hence to the least power consumption. We show that the minimum number of taps does not necessarily lead to the least power consumption in fully parallel FIR filter architectures. This is particularly true if the reduction of the bit-width of the coefficients is taken… Expand
