In electronics,nirali a digital filter is any electronic filter that works by performing digital mathematical operations on an intermediate form of a signal. This is in contrast to older analog filters which work entirely in the analog realm and must rely on physical networks of electronic components (such as resistors, capacitors, transistors, etc.) to achieve the desired filtering effect.

Digital filters can achieve virtually any filtering effect that can be expressed as a mathematical function or algorithm. The two primary limitations of digital filters are their speed (the filter can't operate any faster than the computer at the heart of the filter), and their cost. However as the cost of integrated circuits has continued to drop over time, digital filters have become increasingly commonplace and are now an essential element of many everyday objects such as radios, cellphones, and stereo receivers. In mathematics, computing, linguistics, and related disciplines, an algorithm is a procedure (a finite set of welldefined instructions) for accomplishing some task which, given an initial state, will terminate in a defined endstate. ...

Digital filter advantages
Digital filters can easily realize performance characteristics far beyond what are implementable with analog filters. It is not particularly difficult, for example, to create a 1000 Hz lowpass filter which can achieve nearperfect transmission of a 999 Hz input while entirely blocking a 1001 Hz signal. Analog filters cannot discriminate between such closely spaced signals. A lowpass filter is a filter that passes low frequencies well, but attenuates (or reduces) frequencies higher than the cutoff frequency. ...
Also, for complex multistage filtering operations, digital filters have the potential to attain much better signal to noise ratios than analog filters. This is because whereas at each intermediate stage the analog filter adds more noise to the signal, the digital filter performs noiseless mathematical operations at each intermediate step in the transform. The primary source of noise in a digital filter is to be found in the initial ADC  analog to digital conversion step, where in addition to any circuit noise introduced, the signal is subject to an unavoidable quantization error which is due to the finite resolution of the digital representation of the signal. The phrase signaltonoise ratio, often abbreviated SNR or S/N, is an engineering term for the ratio between the magnitude of a signal (meaningful information) and the magnitude of background noise. ...

It has been suggested that this article or section be merged with quantization noise. ...
Note also that frequency components exceeding half the sampling rate of the filter (cf. Nyquist sampling theorem) will be confounded (or aliased) by the filter. Thus a small antialiasing filter is always placed ahead of the analog to digital conversion circuitry to prevent these highfrequency components from aliasing. A sample refers to a value or set of values at a point in time and/or space. ...
The NyquistShannon sampling theorem is the fundamental theorem in the field of information theory, in particular telecommunications. ...
In digital signal processing, antialiasing is the technique of minimizing aliasing (jagged or blocky patterns) when representing a highresolution signal at a lower resolution. ...

Types of digital filters Many digital filters are based on the Fast Fourier transform, a mathematical algorithm that quickly extracts the frequency spectrum of a signal, allowing the spectrum to be manipulated (such as to create passband filters) before converting the modified spectrum back into a timeseries signal. A fast Fourier transform (FFT) is an efficient algorithm to compute the discrete Fourier transform (DFT) and its inverse. ...
Familiar concepts associated with a frequency are colors, musical notes, radio/TV channels, and even the regular rotation of the earth. ...
