TSEI10 Analog Filters, 6 ECTS credits.

For:   EL  


Prel. scheduled hours: 52
Rec. self-study hours: 108

  Area of Education: Technology

Main field of studies: Electrical Engineering

  Advancement level (G1, G2, A): G2

The aim of the course is to provide insight into principles and methods for design of analog filters. After the course, the student will be able to understand:
  • basic concepts and principles for design of analog filters
  • realization of filters using standard approximations and frequency transformations
  • realization of passive LC filters with optimal element sensitivity
  • sensitivity properties of second-order sections
  • realization of higher-order filters using coupled forms, immitance and topological simulation.

Prerequisites: (valid for students admitted to programmes within which the course is offered)
Circuit Theory

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshhold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Supplementary courses:
Analog Electronic Circuits, Analog and Discrete-Time Integrated Circuits

Lectures, lessons, and laboratory work.

Course contents:
The lectures, exercises, and laboratory work cover:
  • basic concepts and properties of analog filters
  • approximation theory and synthesis of transfer functions using MATLAB and Tables
  • equalization of the group delay
  • realization of passive filters with optimal element sensitivity
  • realization of doubly resistively terminated LC filters
  • realization of passive filters with distributed circuit elements
  • n-ports, immitance converters and inverters, gyrators, transformers, op-amps, transconductors, and current conveyors
  • realization of second-order sections using op-amps, transconductors, and current conveyors
