I. Frequency Response Review Phasor Analysis of the Low-Pass Filter Example: C R V in V out + + Replacing the capacitor by its impedance, 1 / (j ω C), we can solve for the ratio of the phasors Phasor notation V out V in = 1 1 + j ω RC V out V in = 1/ j ω C R + 1/ j ω C V out V out V in 6.012 Spring 2009 2
Magnitude Plot of LPF V out / V in --> 1 for “low” frequencies --> 0 for “high” frequencies V out / V in V out V in Break point log scale 0 1 3dB 0.1 20 1 = 0.707 2 40 0.01 1 dB 20 decade 0.001 60 V out V in dB± scale The “break point” is when the frequency is equal to ω o = 1 / RC The break frequency defines “low” and “high” frequencies.
