As we saw earlier, real life does n ot p ermit such a world view. Things have t o b e g ray or shades of gray. I n p ractice, we c an realize a variety of filter c haracteristics which c an only approach ideal characteristics. A n i deal filter has a p assband ( unity gain) a nd a s topband (zero gain) w ith a s udden t ransition from t he p assband t o t he s topband. T here is no t ransition b and.

Moreover, for realizable filters, t he gain c annot b e zero over a finite b and ( Paley-Wiener condition). As a result, there c an n o t rue s topband for practical filters. We therefore define a s topband t o b e a b and over which t he g ain is below s ome s mall n umber G ., as illustrated in Fig. 7.19. Similarly, we define a p assband t o b e a b and over which t he g ain is between 1 a nd s ome n umber G p (G p < 1), as shown in Fig. 7.19. We have selected the p assband g ain of u nity for convenience. I t c ould b e a ny c onstant. Usually t he gains are specified in t erms o f decibels.
