2 Chapter 6 Active Filters Introduction An electronic circuit that modifies the frequency spectrum of an arbitrary signal is called filter A filter that modifies the spectrum producing amplification is said to be an active filter Vis à vis its definition, it is convenient to study the filter characteristics in terms of the frequency response of its associated two port network H(ω) = (ω) (ω), where and are respectively the input voltage and the output voltage of the network, and ω the angular frequency Depending on the design, active filters have some important advantages: they can provide gain, they can provide isolation because of the typical characteristic impedances of amplifiers, they can be cascaded because of the typical characteristic impedances of amplifiers, they can avoid the use of inductors greatly simplifying the design of the filters Here some disadvantages: 127

3 128 CHAPTER 6 ACTIVE FILTERS they are limited by the amplifiers band-with, and noise, they need power supplies, they dissipate more heat than a passive circuit Let s make some simple definitions useful to classify different types of filters 61 Classification of Ideal Filters Based on their magnitude response H(ω), Some basic ideal filters can be classified as follows: H(ω) H(ω) 1 1 ω Low-pass ω ω High-pass ω H(ω) 1 H(ω) 1 H(ω) 1 ω ω 1 ω ω ω 1 ω Band-pass Stop-band/band-reject ω ω Notch Practical filters approximate more or less the ideal definitions

5 13 CHAPTER 6 ACTIVE FILTERS Denominator roots p 1, p 2,, p n are called poles, and numerator roots z 1, z 2,, z m are called zeros The integers n 1, n 2,, n N, and m 1, m 2,, m N are therefore the multiplicity of poles and zeros Poles and zeros values determine the shape of the filter, and apart from zero frequency, one could say that poles provide attenuation and zeros amplification The transition from transmission to attenuation, and vice versa, in the filter magnitude H(ω) is characterized by an asymptote slope which determine the so called filter order For example, considering the RC low pass filter with ω = 1/RC, we have one pole p 1 = jω H(ω) = ω ω jω first oder low pass filter with cut-off freq ω For the RC high pass filter with ω = 1/RC, we have one pole p 1 = jω and one zero z 1 = H(ω) = ω ω jω first oder high pass filter with cut-off freq ω In the next sub-sections, we will analyze into more details filters with the following transfer function H(ω) = H ω 2 jω ω 1 Q 1 ω 2 1 ω 2 jω ω Q ω2

9 134 CHAPTER 6 ACTIVE FILTERS For example, depending on the output we consider, the already studied LRC series circuit is a low-pass, a band-pass, or a high-pass filter with the transfer function described above When we will study difference filters topologies we will reduce their transfer function into one of the standard form above 63 Common Circuit Filters Topologies This is a brief and not exhaustive at all list of filter topologies that use resistors, capacitors, and operational amplifiers to implement the filters types described above: Infinite gain, multiple feedback (IGMF) Generalized Sallen-Key (GSK) State Variable (SV) Switched Capacitor Filters (SC) Cascading these implementation allows to increase the filter order

18 65 GENERALIZED SALLEN-KEY FILTER TOPOLOGY (GSK) 143 To implement a band-pass filter as shown in Figure 69 one needs to choose the admittances as follows Y 1 = 1 R 1, Y 2 = jωc 2, Y 3 = 1 R 3 jωc 3, Y 4 = 1 R 4, Y 5 = 1 R 5, Y 6 = 1 R 6, and the transfer function of the circuit becomes ( = 1 R ) 6 R 5 R 1 C ( 3 C2 ω 2 C 3 jω ) R 6 C 2 C 3 R 1 C 3 R 3 C 2 R 4 C 3 R 4 R 5 Comparing the denominator of the previous equation with the denominator of the transfer function in section 623 we find that the frequency square ω 2, the quality factor Q, and the DC gain H are respectively jω R 1R 4 C 2 C 3 R 1 R 3 R 4 Q = ω C 2 C 3 R 1 R 3 R 4 R 5 (C 2 C 3 ) R 3 R 4 R 5 C 2 R 1 R 4 R 5 C 3 R 1 R 3 R 5 C 2 R 1 R 3 R 6, 656 Simple Case ω 2 = R 1R 4,H = 1 ( C 2 C 3 R 1 R 3 R 4 R 1 C 3 1 R 6 R 5 ) Q ω If R 1 = R 3 = R 4 = R, C 2 = C 3 = C, and R 5 = R 6 =, then = jω ω Q ω 2 jω ω Q ω2 2 2, ω = RC,, Q = 3, which is the transfer function of a second order high-pass filter with low quality factor

19 144 CHAPTER 6 ACTIVE FILTERS 66 State Variable Filter Topology (SV) The state variable filter provides a low pass, a band pass, and a high pass filter outputs At the same time, it allows to change the gain, the cut-off frequencies, and the quality factor independently, but it requires 4 Op- Amps R 1 R 2 R3 R 4 R 5 C 1 C 2 G V HP G V BP G V LP R 7 R 6 Figure 61: State variable filter circuit TBF 67 Practical Considerations 671 Component Values How do we select the values of capacitance and resistance? Here are some considerations that should help the filter design: reducing the resistance values reduces the thermal noise and therefore the filter noise, reducing resistance values minimizes the op-amp voltage offsets,

20 67 PRACTICAL CONSIDERATIONS 145 increasing the resistance reduce the current load on the op-amps, increasing the resistances usually allows to decrease the capacitance and therefore it make easier to find capacitors because of the small capacitance values needed, reducing the capacitance minimizes the capacitance fluctuations due to temperature, increasing the capacitance allows to reduce resistance values and therefore the thermal noise As we can clearly see, some of the consideration cannot be used at the same time Based on the design requirements one can decide which of the consideration above are more important to finally meet the design requirements Rules of Thumb Particularly critical design often overrule these following rules: Capacitor with capacitance less of ~1 pf should be avoided, Try to use resistor with resistance between few kilo-ohms to few hundreds of kilo-ohms 672 Components technology Capacitors The use of low loss dielectric is very important to obtain good results If possible one should use plastic film capacitors or CG/NPO ceramic capacitors, 1% tolerance for temperature stability Resistor Low thermal noise resistors such as metal film resistors 1% tolerance for temperature stability should be used
