UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering EEN 204 Name: ___________________ Section: ___________________ Date: ___________________ EXPERIMENT 5 LOWPASS AND HIGHPASS FILTERS Frequency Response of R-C circuits: Bode Diagrams PURPOSE: The purpose of this experiment is to introduce the student to two practical frequency discriminating circuits: the lowpass and the highpass filters. The lowpass filter lets pass frequencies below a certain cutoff ϖ c and rejects frequencies above it. The highpass filter performs the opposite task. The frequency band where signals pass through a filter is known as the passband and the region where they are attenuated or stopped is called the stopband . Since filters are not ideal, it takes a certain band for their gain to go from maximum to a level that can be considered negligible. This band is known as the transition band . Filters usually have relatively flat gains in the passband and decrease asymptotically at slopes of ±20 n dB/decade where n is the order of the filter. The frequency at which the gain is down by from the maximum value is called the 3 dB point. For a lowpass filter, the 3 dB point is the same as the bandwidth.

### What students are saying

• 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.
