The discrete multitone modulation system (DMT) has been demonstrated to be a very useful technique for high speed transmission over frequency selective channels such as the digital subscriber loops. The DMT system can be realized using a filterbank transceiver, the synthesis bank as the transmitter and the analysis bank as the receiver. With proper time domain equalization, the channel can usually be modeled as an FIR filter with order L. It is known that if a redundancy of length L is introduced, FIR filterbank transceivers with zero ISI (Inter-Symbol Interference) property can be achieved. For example, in DFT based DMT system, redundancy is introduced by adding a cyclic prefix of length L. In this paper, we will derive the minimum length of redundancy required for FIR filterbank transceivers with ISI Free property. For a give channel, we will show that the minimum length is directly related to the Smith form of an appropriately defined channel matrix.
