In this paper, we propose a novel method for the design of CSD (Canonic Signed Digit) coefficient FIR (Finite Impulse Response) filters based on ACO (Ant Colony Optimization). This design problem is formulated as a combinatorial optimization problem and requires high computation time to obtain the optimal solution. Therefore, we propose an ACO approach for the design of CSD coefficient FIR filters. ACO is one of the promising approaches and appropriate for solving a combinatorial optimization problem in reasonable computation time. Several design examples showed the effectiveness of our method.
