2 hapter 16 Active Filter Design Techniques Thomas Kugelstadt 16.1 Introduction What is a filter? A filter is a device that passes electric signals at certain frequencies or frequency ranges while preventing the passage of others. Webster. Filter circuits are used in a wide variety of applications. In the field of telecommunication, bandpass filters are used in the audio frequency range (0 khz to 20 khz) for modems and speech processing. Highfrequency bandpass filters (several hundred MHz) are used for channel selection in telephone central offices. Data acquisition systems usually require antialiasing lowpass filters as well as lowpass noise filters in their preceding signal conditioning stages. System power supplies often use bandrejection filters to suppress the 60Hz line frequency and high frequency transients. In addition, there are filters that do not filter any frequencies of a complex input signal, but just add a linear phase shift to each frequency component, thus contributing to a constant time delay. These are called allpass filters. At high frequencies (> 1 MHz), all of these filters usually consist of passive components such as inductors (L), resistors (R), and capacitors (). They are then called LR filters. In the lower frequency range (1 Hz to 1 MHz), however, the inductor value becomes very large and the inductor itself gets quite bulky, making economical production difficult. In these cases, active filters become important. Active filters are circuits that use an operational amplifier (op amp) as the active device in combination with some resistors and capacitors to provide an LRlike filter performance at low frequencies (Figure 16 1).

3 Fundamentals of LowPass Filters This chapter covers active filters. It introduces the three main filter optimizations (Butterworth, Tschebyscheff, and Bessel), followed by five sections describing the most common active filter applications: lowpass, highpass, bandpass, bandrejection, and allpass filters. Rather than resembling just another filter book, the individual filter sections are written in a cookbook style, thus avoiding tedious mathematical derivations. Each section starts with the general transfer function of a filter, followed by the design equations to calculate the individual circuit components. The chapter closes with a section on practical design hints for singlesupply filter designs Fundamentals of LowPass Filters The most simple lowpass filter is the passive R lowpass network shown in Figure R V OUT Figure FirstOrder Passive R LowPass Its transfer function is: A(s) 1 R s sr R where the complex frequency variable, s = jω+σ, allows for any time variable signals. For pure sine waves, the damping constant, σ, becomes zero and s = jω. For a normalized presentation of the transfer function, s is referred to the filter s corner frequency, or 3 db frequency, ω, and has these relationships: s s j j f j f With the corner frequency of the lowpass in Figure 16 2 being f = 1/2πR, s becomes s = sr and the transfer function A(s) results in: A(s) 1 1 s The magnitude of the gain response is: A For frequencies Ω >> 1, the rolloff is 20 db/decade. For a steeper rolloff, n filter stages can be connected in series as shown in Figure To avoid loading effects, op amps, operating as impedance converters, separate the individual filter stages. 162

Figure 16 4 shows the results of a fourthorder R lowpass filter. The rolloff of each partial filter (urve 1) is 20 db/decade, increasing the rolloff of the overall filter (urve 2) to 80 db/decade. Note: Filter response graphs plot gain versus the normalized frequency axis Ω (Ω = f/f ). Active Filter Design Techniques 163

6 Fundamentals of LowPass Filters A(s) In addition, Figure 16 4 shows the transfer function of an ideal fourthorder lowpass function (urve 3). In comparison to the ideal lowpass, the R lowpass lacks in the following characteristics: The passband gain varies long before the corner frequency, f, thus amplifying the upper passband frequencies less than the lower passband. The transition from the passband into the stopband is not sharp, but happens gradually, moving the actual 80dB roll off by 1.5 octaves above f. The phase response is not linear, thus increasing the amount of signal distortion significantly. The gain and phase response of a lowpass filter can be optimized to satisfy one of the following three criteria: 1) A maximum passband flatness, 2) An immediate passbandtostopband transition, 3) A linear phase response. For that purpose, the transfer function must allow for complex poles and needs to be of the following type: A 0 1 a1 s b 1 s 2 1 a2 s b 2 s 2 1 an s b n s 2 A 0 i 1 ai s b i s 2 where A 0 is the passband gain at dc, and a i and b i are the filter coefficients. Since the denominator is a product of quadratic terms, the transfer function represents a series of cascaded secondorder lowpass stages, with a i and b i being positive real coefficients. These coefficients define the complex pole locations for each secondorder filter stage, thus determining the behavior of its transfer function. The following three types of predetermined filter coefficients are available listed in table format in Section 16.9: The Butterworth coefficients, optimizing the passband for maximum flatness The Tschebyscheff coefficients, sharpening the transition from passband into the stopband The Bessel coefficients, linearizing the phase response up to f The transfer function of a passive R filter does not allow further optimization, due to the lack of complex poles. The only possibility to produce conjugate complex poles using pas Active Filter Design Techniques 165
7 Fundamentals of LowPass Filters sive components is the application of LR filters. However, these filters are mainly used at high frequencies. In the lower frequency range (< 10 MHz) the inductor values become very large and the filter becomes uneconomical to manufacture. In these cases active filters are used. Active filters are R networks that include an active device, such as an operational amplifier (op amp). Section 16.3 shows that the products of the R values and the corner frequency must yield the predetermined filter coefficients a i and b i, to generate the desired transfer function. The following paragraphs introduce the most commonly used filter optimizations Butterworth LowPass FIlters The Butterworth lowpass filter provides maximum passband flatness. Therefore, a Butterworth lowpass is often used as antialiasing filter in data converter applications where precise signal levels are required across the entire passband. Figure 16 5 plots the gain response of different orders of Butterworth lowpass filters versus the normalized frequency axis, Ω (Ω = f / f ); the higher the filter order, the longer the passband flatness A Gain db st Order 2nd Order 4th Order 10th Order Frequency Ω 100 Figure Amplitude Responses of Butterworth LowPass Filters 166
8 Fundamentals of LowPass Filters Tschebyscheff LowPass Filters The Tschebyscheff lowpass filters provide an even higher gain rolloff above f. However, as Figure 16 6 shows, the passband gain is not monotone, but contains ripples of constant magnitude instead. For a given filter order, the higher the passband ripples, the higher the filter s rolloff A Gain db th Order 2nd Order 4th Order Frequency Ω 100 Figure Gain Responses of Tschebyscheff LowPass Filters With increasing filter order, the influence of the ripple magnitude on the filter rolloff diminishes. Each ripple accounts for one secondorder filter stage. Filters with even order numbers generate ripples above the 0dB line, while filters with odd order numbers create ripples below 0 db. Tschebyscheff filters are often used in filter banks, where the frequency content of a signal is of more importance than a constant amplification Bessel LowPass Filters The Bessel lowpass filters have a linear phase response (Figure 16 7) over a wide frequency range, which results in a constant group delay (Figure 16 8) in that frequency range. Bessel lowpass filters, therefore, provide an optimum squarewave transmission behavior. However, the passband gain of a Bessel lowpass filter is not as flat as that of the Butterworth lowpass, and the transition from passband to stopband is by far not as sharp as that of a Tschebyscheff lowpass filter (Figure 16 9).

Instead of designing an n th order Tschebyscheff lowpass, the problem can be expressed as designing a Tschebyscheff lowpass filter with a certain Q. For bandpass filters, Q is defined as the ratio of the mid frequency, f m, to the bandwidth at the two 3 db points: Q f m (f 2 f 1 ) For lowpass and highpass filters, Q represents the pole quality and is defined as: Q b i a i High Qs can be graphically presented as the distance between the 0dB line and the peak point of the filter s gain response. An example is given in Figure 16 10, which shows a tenthorder Tschebyscheff lowpass filter and its five partial filters with their individual Qs. Active Filter Design Techniques 169

The graphical approximation is good for Q > 3. For lower Qs, the graphical values differ from the theoretical value significantly. However, only higher Qs are of concern, since the higher the Q is, the more a filter inclines to instability Summary The general transfer function of a lowpass filter is : A(s) A 0 i 1 ai s b i s 2 (16 1) The filter coefficients a i and b i distinguish between Butterworth, Tschebyscheff, and Bessel filters. The coefficients for all three types of filters are tabulated down to the tenth order in Section 16.9, Tables 16 4 through
12 LowPass Filter Design The multiplication of the denominator terms with each other yields an n th order polynomial of S, with n being the filter order. While n determines the gain rolloff above f with n 20 dbdecade, a i and b i determine the gain behavior in the passband. In addition, the ratio bi a i more a filter inclines to instability. Q is defined as the pole quality. The higher the Q value, the 16.3 LowPass Filter Design Equation 16 1 represents a cascade of secondorder lowpass filters. The transfer function of a single stage is: A i (s) A 0 1 ai s b i s 2 (16 2) For a firstorder filter, the coefficient b is always zero (b 1 =0), thus yielding: A(s) A 0 1 a 1 s (16 3) The firstorder and secondorder filter stages are the building blocks for higherorder filters. Often the filters operate at unity gain (A 0 =1) to lessen the stringent demands on the op amp s openloop gain. Figure shows the cascading of filter stages up to the sixth order. A filter with an even order number consists of secondorder stages only, while filters with an odd order number include an additional firstorder stage at the beginning.

Therefore, to avoid the saturation of the individual stages, the filters need to be placed in the order of rising Q values. The Q values for each filter order are listed (in rising order) in Section 16 9, Tables 16 4 through FirstOrder LowPass Filter Figures and show a firstorder lowpass filter in the inverting and in the noninverting configuration.

In the case of the inverting amplifier, the accuracy of the unity gain depends on the tolerance of the two resistors, and.

For that purpose, firstorder and secondorder filter stages are connected in series, so that the product of the individual frequency responses results in the optimized frequency response of the overall filter. In order to simplify the design of the partial filters, the coefficients a i and b i for each filter type are listed in the coefficient tables (Tables 16 4 through in Section 16.9), with each table providing sets of coefficients for the first 10 filter orders. Example FifthOrder Filter The task is to design a fifthorder unitygain Butterworth lowpass filter with the corner frequency f = 50 khz.

Likewise, a bandpass characteristic is generated by replacing the S term with the transformation: 1 s 1 s (16 7) In this case, the passband characteristic of a lowpass filter is transformed into the upper passband half of a bandpass filter. The upper passband is then mirrored at the mid frequency, f m (Ω=1), into the lower passband half. Active Filter Design Techniques 1627

The difference between both frequencies is defined as the normalized bandwidth Ω: 2 1 The normalized mid frequency, where Q = 1, is: m In analogy to the resonant circuits, the quality factor Q is defined as the ratio of the mid frequency (f m ) to the bandwidth (B): Q f m B f m 1 1 f 2 f (16 8) The simplest design of a bandpass filter is the connection of a highpass filter and a lowpass filter in series, which is commonly done in wideband filter applications. Thus, a firstorder highpass and a firstorder lowpass provide a secondorder bandpass, while a secondorder highpass and a secondorder lowpass result in a fourthorder bandpass response. In comparison to wideband filters, narrowband filters of higher order consist of cascaded secondorder bandpass filters that use the SallenKey or the Multiple Feedback (MFB) topology
30 BandPass Filter Design SecondOrder BandPass Filter To develop the frequency response of a secondorder bandpass filter, apply the transformation in Equation 16 7 to a firstorder lowpass transfer function: Replacing s with A(s) A 0 1 s 1 s 1 s yields the general transfer function for a secondorder bandpass filter: A(s) A0 s 1 s s 2 (16 9) When designing bandpass filters, the parameters of interest are the gain at the mid frequency (A m ) and the quality factor (Q), which represents the selectivity of a bandpass filter. Therefore, replace A 0 with A m and Ω with 1/Q (Equation 16 7) and obtain: A(s) A m Q s 1 1 s s2 Q (16 10) Figure shows the normalized gain response of a secondorder bandpass filter for different Qs Q = 1 A Gain db Q = Frequency Ω Figure Gain Response of a SecondOrder BandPass Filter Active Filter Design Techniques 1629

A drawback is, however, that Q and A m cannot be adjusted independently. are must be taken when G approaches the value of 3, because then A m becomes infinite and causes the circuit to oscillate. To set the mid frequency of the bandpass, specify f m and and then solve for R: R 1 2f m 1630
32 BandPass Filter Design Because of the dependency between Q and A m, there are two options to solve for : either to set the gain at mid frequency: 2A m 1 1 A m or to design for a specified Q: 2Q 1 Q Multiple Feedback Topology V OUT R 3 Figure MFB BandPass The MFB bandpass circuit in Figure has the following transfer function: A(s) R 3 R 3 m s 1 2 R 3 R 3 m s R 3 R 3 m2 s 2 The coefficient comparison with Equation 16 9, yields the following equations: midfrequency: f m 1 R 3 2 R1 R 3 gain at f m : filter quality: bandwidth: A m 2 Q f m B 1 The MFB bandpass allows to adjust Q, A m, and f m independently. Bandwidth and gain factor do not depend on R 3. Therefore, R 3 can be used to modify the mid frequency with Active Filter Design Techniques 1631
33 BandPass Filter Design out affecting bandwidth, B, or gain, A m. For low values of Q, the filter can work without R3, however, Q then depends on A m via: A m 2Q 2 Example SecondOrder MFB BandPass Filter with f m = 1 khz To design a secondorder MFB bandpass filter with a mid frequency of f m = 1 khz, a quality factor of Q = 10, and a gain of A m = 2, assume a capacitor value of = 100 nf, and solve the previous equations for through R 3 in the following sequence: Q f m k 1 khz 100 nf 31.8 k 7.96 k 2A m 4 R 3 A m 2Q k A m FourthOrder BandPass Filter (Staggered Tuning) Figure shows that the frequency response of secondorder bandpass filters gets steeper with rising Q. However, there are bandpass applications that require a flat gain response close to the mid frequency as well as a sharp passbandtostopband transition. These tasks can be accomplished by higherorder bandpass filters. Of particular interest is the application of the lowpass to bandpass transformation onto a secondorder lowpass filter, since it leads to a fourthorder bandpass filter. Replacing the S term in Equation 16 2 with Equation 16 7 gives the general transfer function of a fourthorder bandpass: A(s) s 2 A 0 () 2 b 1 1 a 1 b 1 s 2 ()2 b 1 s 2 a 1 b 1 s 3 s 4 (16 11) Similar to the lowpass filters, the fourthorder transfer function is split into two secondorder bandpass terms. Further mathematical modifications yield: A mi A s mi s Q A(s) i 1 s (s) 2 Q 1 Q i 1 1 s Q s2 i (16 12) Equation represents the connection of two secondorder bandpass filters in series, where 1632
34 BandPass Filter Design A mi is the gain at the mid frequency, f mi, of each partial filter Q i is the pole quality of each filter α and 1/α are the factors by which the mid frequencies of the individual filters, f m1 and f m2, derive from the mid frequency, f m, of the overall bandpass. In a fourthorder bandpass filter with high Q, the mid frequencies of the two partial filters differ only slightly from the overall mid frequency. This method is called staggered tuning. Factor α needs to be determined through successive approximation, using equation 16 13: 2 a 1 b () 2 b 1 0 (16 13) with a 1 and b 1 being the secondorder lowpass coefficients of the desired filter type. To simplify the filter design, Table 16 2 lists those coefficients, and provides the α values for three different quality factors, Q = 1, Q = 10, and Q = 100. Table Values of α For Different Filter Types and Different Qs Bessel Butterworth Tschebyscheff a a a b b b Q Q Q Ω Ω Ω α α α Active Filter Design Techniques 1633
35 BandPass Filter Design After α has been determined, all quantities of the partial filters can be calculated using the following equations: The mid frequency of filter 1 is: f m1 f m (16 14) the mid frequency of filter 2 is: f m2 f m (16 15) with f m being the mid frequency of the overall forthorder bandpass filter. The individual pole quality, Q i, is the same for both filters: Q i Q 1 2 b 1 a 1 (16 16) with Q being the quality factor of the overall filter. The individual gain (A mi ) at the partial mid frequencies, f m1 and f m2, is the same for both filters: A mi Q i Q A m B1 (16 17) with A m being the gain at mid frequency, f m, of the overall filter. Example FourthOrder Butterworth BandPass Filter The task is to design a fourthorder Butterworth bandpass with the following parameters: mid frequency, f m = 10 khz bandwidth, B = 1000 Hz and gain, A m = 1 From Table 16 2 the following values are obtained: a1 = b1 = 1 α =
36 BandPass Filter Design In accordance with Equations and 16 15, the mid frequencies for the partial filters are: f mi 10 khz khz and f m2 10 khz khz The overall Q is defined as Q f m B, and for this example results in Q = 10. Using Equation 16 16, the Q i of both filters is: Q i With Equation 16 17, the passband gain of the partial filters at f m1 and f m2 calculates to: A mi The Equations and show that Q i and A mi of the partial filters need to be independently adjusted. The only circuit that accomplishes this task is the MFB bandpass filter in Paragraph To design the individual secondorder bandpass filters, specify = 10 nf, and insert the previously determined quantities for the partial filters into the resistor equations of the MFB bandpass filter. The resistor values for both partial filters are calculated below.

Two of the most popular bandrejection filters are the active twint and the active Wien Robinson circuit, both of which are secondorder filters. To generate the transfer function of a secondorder bandrejection filter, replace the S term of a firstorder lowpass response with the transformation in 16 18: s 1 s (16 18) which gives: A(s) A 0 1 s 2 1 s s 2 (16 19) Thus the passband characteristic of the lowpass filter is transformed into the lower passband of the bandrejection filter. The lower passband is then mirrored at the mid frequency, f m (Ω=1), into the upper passband half (Figure 16 36)

The difference between both frequencies is the normalized bandwidth Ω: max min Identical to the selectivity of a bandpass filter, the quality of the filter rejection is defined as: Q f m B 1 Therefore, replacing Ω in Equation with 1/Q yields: A(s) A 0 1 s s s2 Q (16 20) Active TwinT Filter The original twint filter, shown in Figure 16 37, is a passive Rnetwork with a quality factor of Q = To increase Q, the passive filter is implemented into the feedback loop of an amplifier, thus turning into an active bandrejection filter, shown in Figure R/2 V OUT R R 2 Figure Passive TwinT Filter Active Filter Design Techniques 1637
39 BandRejection Filter Design R/2 R R 2 V OUT Figure Active TwinT Filter The transfer function of the active twint filter is: k1 s 2 A(s) 1 2(2 k) s s 2 (16 21) omparing the variables of Equation with Equation provides the equations that determine the filter parameters: midfrequency: inner gain: passband gain: f m 1 2R G 1 A 0 G rejection quality: Q 1 2(2 G) The twint circuit has the advantage that the quality factor (Q) can be varied via the inner gain (G) without modifying the mid frequency (f m ). However, Q and A m cannot be adjusted independently. To set the mid frequency of the bandpass, specify f m and, and then solve for R: R 1 2f m Because of the dependency between Q and A m, there are two options to solve for : either to set the gain at mid frequency: A0 1 R

The output voltage is the difference between the potential of a constant voltage divider and the output of a bandpass filter. Its Qfactor is close to that of the twint circuit. To achieve higher values of Q, the filter is connected into the feedback loop of an amplifier.

If f m is not completely suppressed due to component tolerances of R and, a finetuning of the resistor 2 is required.

Because of these properties, allpass filters are used in phase compensation and signal delay circuits. Similar to the lowpass filters, allpass circuits of higher order consist of cascaded firstorder and secondorder allpass stages. To develop the allpass transfer function from a lowpass response, replace A 0 with the conjugate complex denominator. The general transfer function of an allpass is then: i 1 ai s b i s 2 A(s) i 1 ai s b i s 2 (16 23) with a i and b i being the coefficients of a partial filter. The allpass coefficients are listed in Table of Section Expressing Equation in magnitude and phase yields: Active Filter Design Techniques 1641
43 AllPass Filter Design i 1 bi 2 2 a i 2 2 A(s) i 1 bi 2 2 a 2 i 2 e ja e ja (16 24) This gives a constant gain of 1, and a phase shift,φ, of: a 2 2 arctan i 1 b i 2 i (16 25) To transmit a signal with minimum phase distortion, the allpass filter must have a constant group delay across the specified frequency band. The group delay is the time by which the allpass filter delays each frequency within that band. The frequency at which the group delay drops to 1 2 times its initial value is the corner frequency, f. The group delay is defined through: t gr d d (16 26) To present the group delay in normalized form, refer t gr to the period of the corner frequency, T, of the allpass circuit: T gr t gr T c t gr f c t gr c 2 (16 27) Substituting t gr through Equation gives: T gr 1 2 d d (16 28) 1642
44 AllPass Filter Design Inserting the ϕ term in Equation into Equation and completing the derivation, results in: T gr 1 i a i 1 bi 2 1 a1 2 2b 1 2 b (16 29) Setting Ω = 0 in Equation gives the group delay for the low frequencies, 0 < Ω < 1, which is: T gr0 1 i a i (16 30) The values for T gr0 are listed in Table 16 10, Section 16.9, from the first to the tenth order. In addition, Figure shows the group delay response versus the frequency for the first ten orders of allpass filters.

Therefore, the magnitude of the gain is 1, while the phase changes from 0 to 180.

Example ms Delay AllPass Filter A signal with the frequency spectrum, 0 < f < 1 khz, needs to be delayed by 2 ms.

48 Practical Design Hints 16.8 Practical Design Hints This section introduces dcbiasing techniques for filter designs in singlesupply applications, which are usually not required when operating with dual supplies. It also provides recommendations on selecting the type and value range of capacitors and resistors as well as the decision criteria for choosing the correct op amp Filter ircuit Biasing The filter diagrams in this chapter are drawn for dual supply applications. The op amp operates from a positive and a negative supply, while the input and the output voltage are referenced to ground (Figure 16 46). +V 1 VOUT V Figure DualSupply Filter ircuit For the single supply circuit in Figure 16 47, the lowest supply voltage is ground. For a symmetrical output signal, the potential of the noninverting input is levelshifted to midrail. +V R B IN R B VMID VOUT Figure SingleSupply Filter ircuit The coupling capacitor, IN in Figure 16 47, accouples the filter, blocking any unknown dc level in the signal source. The voltage divider, consisting of the two equalbias resistors R B, divides the supply voltage to V MID and applies it to the inverting op amp input. For simple filter input structures, passive R networks often provide a lowcost biasing solution. In the case of more complex input structures, such as the input of a secondorder Active Filter Design Techniques 1647
49 +V +V Practical Design Hints lowpass filter, the R network can affect the filter characteristic. Then it is necessary to either include the biasing network into the filter calculations, or to insert an input buffer between biasing network and the actual filter circuit, as shown in Figure R B IN VMID VMID V MID VMID R B 1 V OUT Figure Biasing a SallenKey LowPass IN accouples the filter, blocking any dc level in the signal source. V MID is derived from V via the voltage divider. The op amp operates as a voltage follower and as an impedance converter. V MID is applied via the dc path, and, to the noninverting input of the filter amplifier. Note that the parallel circuit of the resistors, R B, together with IN create a highpass filter. To avoid any effect on the lowpass characteristic, the corner frequency of the input highpass must be low versus the corner frequency of the actual lowpass. The use of an input buffer causes no loading effects on the lowpass filter, thus keeping the filter calculation simple. In the case of a higherorder filter, all following filter stages receive their bias level from the preceding filter amplifier. Figure shows the biasing of an multiple feedback (MFB) lowpass filter

The filter itself is biased via the noninverting amplifier input. For that purpose, the bias voltage is taken from the output of a V MID generator with low output impedance. The op amp operates as a difference amplifier and subtracts the bias voltage of the input buffer from the bias voltage of the V MID generator, thus yielding a dc potential of V MID at zero input signal. A lowcost alternative is to remove the op amp and to use a passive biasing network instead. However, to keep loading effects at a minimum, the values for R B must be significantly higher than without the op amp. The biasing of a SallenKey and an MFB highpass filter is shown in Figure The input capacitors of highpass filters already provide the accoupling between filter and signal source. Both circuits use the V MID generator from Figure for biasing. While the MFB circuit is biased at the noninverting amplifier input, the SallenKey highpass is biased via the only dc path available, which is. In the ac circuit, the input signals travel via the low output impedance of the op amp to ground. Active Filter Design Techniques 1649
