First –Order Filter Objective: The main purpose of this experiment is to introduce the first- order filter analysis and its design. Procedure: 1. Low pass filter: After building the low-pass filter circuit on the protoboard, we created a data table with four columns labeled by the frequency, input voltage, output voltage, and the gain. The function generator was set to produce a 10 Hz and 2Vpp sine wave. By maintaining the same input voltage, we started varying the signal frequency logarithmically. And for each value of frequency, we recorded the input, and output voltages and we computed the gain. We noticed that the gain kept approximately constant (=G) then it began to decrease. At 0.707*G we found the corresponded value of frequency; this is "the cut- off frequency". 2. High pass filter design: After building the high pass filter designed in the prelab, we re-measured as for the low pass filter, and at different frequencies, the values of input and output voltages and the gain beginning at 10 Hz and reaching 1 MHz.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
