A rather intuitive technique known as pole-zero placement is introduced to illustrate the frequency response of the special impacting filters (SIFs) with a pair of conjugate zero-poles and deduce the equation of the pole radii. Based on that, the paper proposes an iterative scheme to derive the parameters of the cascade notch filter. The cost function is determined by the cascading notch filter’s influence on impacting filters, converting the cost function’s least square problem to a filter parameters’ standard quadratic programming problem. Finally, a cascading notch SIF (CNSIF) designed to demodulate the ABPSK signals is realized.
