Analog Filters VERIFIED

The following chapters will show some of the techniques involved in designing analog filters, and transforming analog filters from one type to another. The section will culminate on a chapter on the bilinear transform, which transforms the mathematical representation for an analog filter into the equations for an equivalent digital filter.

Analog Filters


There are many different types of spectral transformations and there are many mappings from analog to digital filters. the most famous mapping is known as the bilinear transform, and we will discuss that in a different chapter.

All the differences listed before are still present. Most notable among them is the fact that this time the corner frequency is too high. The reasons are the same as before.This brings us to the conclusion. You now know how to design low and high pass filters, are familiar with their idealized characteristics and have a basic understanding of how reality differs from idealizations. Or at least that was the intent:)

I was wondering if Access will ever consider implementing real analog filters. After repackaging their synths for quite some time and offering some admittedly good stuff, it seems the right thing to do. I am sure that would be a really good upgrade and lots of people would welcome it.

Just as soon as the technology improves - and I believe that the Virus is one of the few modern synths that can pull it off convincingly at the moment - mimicking analogue filters will be easy (and i mean mimicking in as much as one 'such and such' filter sounds like another of the same...).

There is no myth as to what true analog is. You could possibly consider the new school analog synths that have digital tuning to not be true analog, I guess. As for vinyl, it produces frequencies twice as high as what most digital mediums output today, so, no, that hasn't been faked. If you want to argue whether most humans can hear frequencies that high or whether it affects them is another story.

Fact is that human hearing has a finite bandwidth, and is in many ways discrete, and certainly has an SNR limit well beyond the SNR of the subtleties in an analogue filter that may be missed compared to the volume of a mix as a whole (if you treat the rest of the mix as noise). Esentially im saying in any produced track the subtleties would be drowned out - and, since nearly all music listened to is stored digitally, and as mp3, these subtleties are discarded by being rounded off anyway.

I think if you have a delve into the details of analogue vs digital + sample rates you will start to realise why analogue is 1. different and 2. defintately a higher standard of original sound source vs digital.

In fact, the ONLY realm of analogue left to be conquered by digital is in saturation/distortion, where the interactions become highly non-linear, and this is where vast amounts of MMACCs and bandwidth are needed to pull up the model for various different situations

There is no digital medium that sounds anything like listening to a phonographic record. As for not being able to hear an analog filter because you're playing back though a digital medium, that's nonsense. The difference in sound of an analog filter isn't subtle, it's drastic, and that difference gets recorded, it doesn't get rounded off because the difference in an analog filter isn't just in the higher frequencies.

The Butterworth and Chebyshev Type II filters have flat passbands and wide transition bands. The Chebyshev Type I and elliptic filters roll off faster but have passband ripple. The frequency input to the Chebyshev Type II design function sets the beginning of the stopband rather than the end of the passband.

State-space representation of the filter, returned as matrices.If m = n forlowpass and highpass designs and m = 2n for bandpass and bandstop filters,then A is m m, B is m 1, C is 1 m, and D is 1 1.

In general, use the [z,p,k] syntax to design IIR filters. To analyze or implement your filter, you can then use the [z,p,k] output with zp2sos. If you design the filter using the [b,a] syntax, you might encounter numerical problems. These problems are due to round-off errors and can occur for n as low as 4. The following example illustrates this limitation.

Butterworth filters have a magnitude response that is maximallyflat in the passband and monotonic overall. This smoothness comesat the price of decreased rolloff steepness. Elliptic and Chebyshevfilters generally provide steeper rolloff for a given filter order.

For digital filters, if fs is not specified, Wn units arenormalized from 0 to 1, where 1 is the Nyquist frequency (Wn isthus in half cycles / sample and defined as 2*critical frequencies/ fs). If fs is specified, Wn is in the same units as fs.

Filters are some of the most common components found in wireless system designs. They are typically used to block interference from various sources. As limited spectrum resources are allocated to ever increasing number of users, more conflicts between these users arise and more filters are constantly needed. Nowadays, interference is quite common between cellular base stations, satellite systems, radar installations, and other type of access and backhaul communications systems. In many cases, traditional filters are unable to cope with the requirements, typically due to insufficient guard band. For example, in some parts of the world, LTE base stations and satellite receivers share the L-Band frequencies. And at around 3.5GHz, 5G operators, CBRS radios, and military radars are trying to co-exist. To address this in-band interference, a new, tunable filtering technology is making its presence known in the market, uniquely blending the best of both analog and digital technologies.

However, analog RF filters, critical for combating interference and ensuring efficient use of radio spectrum resources, are still based on analog-era technology with significant performance, size/weight, and manufacturing limitations.

The biggest problem with conventional filters, however, is that they often fail to provide enough signal rejection. This can happen for a number of reasons: the interfering signal is too close in frequency to the desired signal, the source of the interfering signal is too close to the receiver, or the interfering signal is simply too powerful.

Digital filters, for example based on finite impulse response (FIR) or infinite impulse response (IIR) architectures, are widely available and are commonly used as part of practically any digital sub-system. They offer immense flexibility in their ability to shape the signal. By nature, these filters operate on digital samples of the original analog signal. In other words, before any digital manipulations can be applied to the signal, it must be sampled and converted to digital representation. This process is not only time consuming but it also degrades the resolution (the dynamic range) of the original signal since analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) have only finite number of bits of resolution. Once available in digital representation, the digital filter (that is essentially a set of mathematical manipulations of the samples) can be applied. This process, again, takes time since every addition or multiplication consumes CPU cycles. Inherently, digital processing introduces latency in the data path that must be accounted for in the application. This often represents a challenge to RF applications given the propagation speed of the native analog signal. Finally, if the desired output of the system needs to be an RF analog signal (like in any transmitter), the digital samples have to be converted yet again, this time back to analog representation using digital-to-analog Converters (DACs). This further contributes to undesirable latency.

It is truly the first software-controlled analog filter designed for wireless applications. The chip is essentially a multi-tap implementation, in which each tap packs an adder, multiplier, and delay element.

The software-defined analog filter was originally developed for Self-Interference Cancellation applications where the interferer is co-located next to the receiver. This is achieved by continuously modifying the response of the multi-tap analog filter to match the self-interference, using a tuning logic that estimates the self-interference channel. Traditional filter applications are obviously much simpler than that, and can be handled with static configuration of the filter for the desired response.

Digitally-controlled analog filter, like the KU1500, has tremendous potential in environments where guard bands are unavailable or where the cost of the spectrum calls for their elimination. Such filters could contribute dramatically to improved spectrum utilization. Furthermore, self-interference cancellation based on such filters offers the ultimate solution for packing multiple co-located radios into a small form-factor device, while maintaining complete frequency agility across the entire band. Using the technology, radios can communicate simultaneously using nearby, immediately adjacent, or even overlapping frequencies, a problem that actually occurs, for example, in mass-market devices supporting both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
