1 MEEN 260 Introduction to Engineering Experimentation Analog Filters Reza Langari* Department of Mechanical Engineering Texas A&M University [email protected] *Incorporates a number of slides from Brian Rasmussen, TAMU MEEN, Copyright 2008. Analog vs. Digital Filters Analog Filters Made of physical components (RC circuit, bike shock absorber, etc.) Operate continuously in time (at every instant in time) Advantage: cheap (RLC circuits are pennies) Disadvantage: semi permanent design Digital filters Mathematical algorithm implemented using a microprocessor or computer Operates at fixed instances in time (e.g. every 0.1 seconds) Advantage: flexible design, modular, easy to implement Disadvantage: \$\$\$ (DSP ~ \$20) Passive vs. Active Filters Passive Filters Do not add energy to the signal Examples RLC circuits Active Filters Add energy to the signal Examples Circuits with Op Amps
