## What is the difference between Butterworth Chebyshev I and Chebyshev II filters?

Butterworth filter has a poor roll-off rate. For the same filter order, the stopband attenuation is higher for the Chebyshev filter. Compared to a Butterworth filter, a Chebyshev-I filter can achieve a sharper transition between the passband and the stopband with a lower order filter.

## How do I know if my filter is FIR or IIR?

The easiest way to determine whether a filter is IIR or FIR is to identify its pole locations. For FIR filters, there is a rule for this that is based on the structure of the impulse response: If the system is causal (i.e. it is zero for all n<0), then it is FIR if all of its poles are located at the origin (z=0).

## Which is better IIR or FIR filter?

The advantage of IIR filters over FIR filters is that IIR filters usually require fewer coefficients to execute similar filtering operations, that IIR filters work faster, and require less memory space. FIR filters are better suited for applications that require a linear phase response.

## Why ideal filters are not realizable?

The Paley and Wiener criterion implies that ideal filters are not physically realizable because in a certain frequency range for each type of ideal filters. Therefore, approximations of ideal filters are desired.

## What is an ideal low-pass filter?

An ideal low-pass filter completely eliminates all frequencies above the cutoff frequency while passing those below unchanged; its frequency response is a rectangular function and is a brick-wall filter. The transition region present in practical filters does not exist in an ideal filter.

## When would you use a low pass filter?

A low-pass filter can be used very effectively to mimic the sensation that one signal is further away from the listener than another (unfiltered) signal. This technique can be used very quickly, and easily to establish spatial contrast between two signals, especially if they’re separated in the stereo field.

## What is the cut off frequency of a low pass filter?

The cutoff frequency for a low-pass filter is that frequency at which the output (load) voltage equals 70.7% of the input (source) voltage.

## How do I know if my filter is high-pass or low pass?

If a filter passes low frequencies and blocks high frequencies, it is called a low-pass filter. If it blocks low frequencies and passes high frequencies, it is a high-pass filter.

## What is 3db loss?

Every 1dB of loss in the system represent a full 20% -loss- of power. Just as in gain, 3dB of loss represents a loss of 50% of your power. LMR400 has 6.6dB per 100ft, so keep your runs as short as possible. All losses are cumulative, so every element of your system has to be accounted for…

## Is 3dB a big difference?

Physics tells us that for every doubling of acoustical energy, there is a 3dB increase. Conversely, a 3dB decrease means the sound is cut in half. Sound studies tell us time and again that a 3dBA increase in sound level is barely noticeable to the human ear.

## How do I find my 3dB bandwidth?

the -3 dB frequency is at the frequency which results in half of the power as in the center of the passband (in this case, at DC). solve for ω and you have your -3 dB bandwidth. A ballpark value can be obtained by looking at the magnitude plot.

## What is dB in filter?

Decibels (dB) – a logarithmic unit of attenuation, or gain, used to express the relative voltage or power between two signals. For filters we use decibels to indicate cutoff frequencies (-3 dB) and stopband signal levels (-20 dB) as illustrated in Figure F-3.
