Analog Filters

  1. Compare analog filters with digital filters.
  2. Operating characteristics of simple analog filters, such as RC, LC, RL, RLC, Chebychev filters

In order to eliminate the unwanted interference that accompanies a signal, a filter is needed.

Classification of filters:
  • Low pass filters
  • High pass filters
  • Band-pass filters
  • Band-reject filters
Classification of filters:
  • Continuous time
  • Discrete time
Classification of filters:
  • Passive filters
  • Active filters
