1 Laboratory of the circuits and signals Laboratory work No. 4 ACTIVE FILTERS Objectives: to get acquainted with active filter circuits and parameters, design methods, build and investigate active LPF, HPF and BPF. Introduction Main Concepts A filter is a circuit that passes certain frequencies easily, and attenuates all other frequencies. An active filter is a circuit that includes an RC filter network followed by an op-amp to provide gain and impedance characteristics. A low-pass filter passes low frequencies from DC up to the cutoff frequency f c. At f c the response is down 3 db or from the response in the band-pass. The passband of a filter is that group of frequencies easily passed. The bandwidth of a low-pass filter is equal to f c. BW = f c A high-pass filter rejects all frequencies below f c, and passes all frequencies above f c. A roll-off rate of -6 db/octave or 20 db/decade occurs for a single-chain filter stage. A single chain stage consists of one resistor and one capacitor. A band-pass filter passes all frequencies between an upper and lower f c. All other frequencies above or below these frequencies are attenuated. The bandwidth is found by BW = f c2 f c1. The center frequency (f 0 ) is the mean of the two cutoff frequencies and is found by The bandwidth of a band-pass filter is BW = f 0 /Q. A band-stop filter rejects all frequencies between two cutoff frequencies and passes all others. Other popular names for a band-stop filter are notch filter, band-reject filter, and band-elimination filter. Filter Response Characteristics A very common active filter is the Butterworth. A Butterworth filter provides a very flat response in the passband and a roll-off rate of 20 db/decade. The Butterworth filter does have a phase shift, and for this reason it is not often used in pulse application. Overshoot will occur with pulses applied. Another filter, the Chebyshev, has the characteristic of a very rapid roll-off rate greater than 20 db/decade/chain. This filter will have ripples in the response within the passband. The Bessel filter is used for filtering pulse waveforms. There is little phase shift, so pulse waveforms are not distorted.

2 The Elliptical (Courer) filter will have ripples in the response in the passband and within passband The cutoff frequency f c of an active filter is determined by the values of R and C.A first-order (single-chain) filter has f c = 1/2π RC. The number of chains determines the roll-off rate. Each chain adds a roll-off rate of 6 db/octave or 20 db/decade. Active Low-Pass Filters An active low-pass filter consists of an RC filter network followed by an op-amp amplifier. Low-pass filters can be cascaded to obtain a greater roll-off rate. For example, a two-chains filter followed by another two-chains filter will produce a roll-off rate of 80 db/decade. Active High-Pass Filters A high-pass active filter follows the same theory as a low-pass filter. The positions of the resistors and capacitors are reversed. High-pass filters can be cascaded in a similar manner to low-pass filter. Active Band-Pass Filters An active band-pass filter can be made using cascaded high-pass and low-pass filters. Another band-pass filter is the multiple-feedback filter. This filter uses a high-pass and a low-pass section providing two feedback paths. A state-variable filter is often used as a band-pass filter. State-variable filters use a summing amplifier and two integrators to provide the band-pass output. Active Band-Stop Filters Band-stop filters can use a state-variable filter or a multiple-feedback filter. The order of the low pass filter is calculated from: log (10 n α min / 10 α max/10 [ 1) /(10 1) ] 2log( ω p / ω s ) here α min - attenuation is pass-band, in db; α max attenuation is stop-band, in db; ω s - stop-band boundary frequency, ω p pass-band boundary frequency. The order of the high pass filter is calculated from: log (10 n α min / 10 α max/10 [ 1) /(10 1) ] 2log( ω s / ω p )

3 2nd Order Opamp Filters and their diagrams The figures below illustrate using opamps as active 2nd order filters. Three 2nd order filters are shown, low pass, high pass, and bandpass. Each of these filters will attenuate frequencies outside their passband at a rate of 12dB per octave or 1/4 the voltage amplitude for each octave of frequency increase or decrease outside the passband. First order low or high pass cutoff frequency (-3dB point) = 1/(2π *R*C) 2nd order low or high pass cutoff frequency (-3dB point) = 1/2π (R1*R2*C1*C2)^.5 Linear network Magnitude scaling by scale factor K m : 1. Multiply all resistances and inductances by K m. 2. Divide all capacitances by K m. 3. For r m type controlled source (i.e, CCVS) multiply the parameter r m by K m. 4. For g m type controlled source (i.e, VCCS) divide the parameter g m by K m. 5. Parameters of VCVS and CCCS remain unchanged. 6. Ideal OpAmp remain unchanged.
