in Fig. 7.l4e). A zero on t he i maginary axis a t jwo will totally suppress t he gain
(zero gain) a t frequency woo R epeated zeros will further enhance t he effect. Also,
a closely-placed pair of a pole a nd a zero (dipole) t end t o cancel o ut each other's
influence on t he frequency response. Clearly, a proper placement of poles a nd zeros
can yield a variety of frequency-selective behavior. Using these observations, we
c an design lowpass, highpass, bandpass, a nd b andstop (or notch) filters.
P hase response can also be computed graphically. In Fig. 7.l4a, angles formed
by t he complex conjugate poles - 0 ± jwo a t w = 0 ( the origin) are equal a nd
opposite. As w increases from 0 up, t he angle /1 1 because of t he pole - 0 + jwo,
which has a negative value a t w = 0, is r educed in magnitude; t he angle /12 b ecause
of t he pole - 0 - jwo, which has a positive value a t w = 0, increases in magnitude.
As a r esult, /1 1+/12, t he s um of t he two angles, increases continuously, approaching a
value 7r as w - > 00. T he r esulting p hase response L H(jw) = - (/1 1 +/12) is i llustrated
in Fig. 7.l4c. Similar a rguments apply t o zeros a t - 0 ± jwo. T he r esulting phase
response L H(jw) = (<PI + <P2) is d epicted in Fig. 7.l4f. 7 F requency Response a nd A nalog Filters 500 We now focus o n simple filters, using t he i ntuitive insights gained in this discussion.
