Kirk Poucher ECE 3041, L03 WA2 HW, Due 7/6/06 Filter Properties The purpose of an analog passive filter is to extract desired frequency responses from a given circuit. This is accomplished by creating the filter circuit in such a way that it has a high output gain for the desired frequencies, effectively cutting out the unwanted frequencies. There are several types of common filters, such as: Low Pass Filters (LPF) which allow lower frequencies to pass but reject higher ones; High Pass Filters (HPF) which allow higher frequencies to pass but reject lower ones; Band Pass Filters (BPF) which allow all frequencies within a desired band to pass; and All Pass Filters (APF) which are similar to BPFs except

Unformatted text preview: that there are no restrictions on the desired pass band frequencies. The types of filters that 3041 students are familiar with are described as passive filters, because these filters only cut out unwanted frequencies. On the contrary, an active filter would boost the desired signal to a higher level, through some sort of transistor network. The purpose of this experiment is to familiarize the student with analog passive filter design through hands on experimentation with circuit elements, so that they may utilize this knowledge to aid in their future course work....
