Summary: 
This paper presents the implementation of a 31-tap FIR Hilbert transform digital filter chip used in the digital-IF receivers, to confirm the effectiveness of our new design method. Our design method that we previously reported is based on a computation sharing multiplier using a new horizontal and vertical common subexpression techniques. A 31-tap FIR Hilbert transform digital filter was implemented and fabricated in 0.35 µm CMOS standard cell library. The chip's core contains approximately 33k transistors and occupies 0.86 mm2. The chip also has an operating speed of 70 MHz over. The implementation results show that the proposed Hilbert transformer has a smallest cost factor and so that is a high performance filter.
