Filter Specification : We use the low-pass response in figure to illustrate the information that must be available to the designer of a filter. At a minimum, the designer requires the following specifications: 1.The cutoff frequency f H (or f C ), that is, the range of passband frequencies. 2.The stopband attenuation H H 2 . 3.The stopband frequency range. That is, f S is specified. 4.The allowable passband ripple = H H 1 . If no ripple is permitted, = 0 and H 1 = H . Butterworth and Chebyshev Filter Functions : The general form of the transfer function H(s) can be expressed as ) ( ) ( ) ( s B s A s H = Where A(s) and B(s) are polynomials in the frequency variables. Type of characteristic Form of transfer function H(s) = A(s)/B(s) Low-pass 2 2 ) / ( o o s Q s K + + 2 2 ) / ( ) ( o o s Q s z s K + + + High-pass 2 2 2 ) / ( o o s Q s Ks + + 2 2 ) / ( ) ( o o s Q s z s Ks + + + Band-pass 2 2 ) / ( o o s Q s Ks + + Band-elimination 2 2 2 2 ) / ( ) ( o o r s Q s s K + + + Biquadratic Transfer Functions The Biquadratic Function : Consider H(s) to be of the form 1 2 1 2 2 ) ( b s b s a s a s a s H + + + + = The expression for H(s) in the above equation is called a biquadratic function or simply a biquad because both numerator and denominator are quadratics in s. The low-pass function in the left-hand column in Table 5-1 can be written as 1 ) / )( / 1 ( ) / ( ) ( 2 2 + + = s Q s H s H 2 / ) ( K s H = where Butterworth Polynomials : The use of Butterworth polynomials is a common all-pole approximation of the low-pass characteristic. Hence H(s) = H /B(s), where B(s) is a Butterworth polynomial whose magnitude is given by n B 2 2 1 ) ( + = Filters that use Butterworth polynomials are called Butterworth filters.

Solution : The normalized magnitude of the filter transfer function is n H j H 2 2 ) / ( 1 1 ) ( + = An attention of 40 dB corresponds to H(j )/H = 0.01 , and hence ( 29 ( 29 n 2 2 2 1 / 1 010 . + = 1 10 2 4 2- = n or Solving for n by taking the logarithm of both sides gives 2 log ) 1 10 log( 2 4- = n and n = 6.64 Since the order of the filter must be an integer, n = 7. Chebyshev Filters : When specifications permit a small amount of passband ripple, a frequently used all-pole approximation is the Chebyshev filter. The transfer function is of the formChebyshev filter....
