Description

example

[z,p,k] = cheb2ap(n,Rs) returns the zeros, poles, and gain of an order n Chebyshev Type II analog lowpass filter prototype with Rs dB of ripple down from the passband peak value in the stopband.

Design a 6th-order Chebyshev Type II analog lowpass filter with 70 dB of ripple in the stopband. Display its magnitude and phase responses.

[z,p,k] = cheb2ap(6,70);      % Lowpass filter prototype
[num,den] = zp2tf(z,p,k);     % Convert to transfer function form
freqs(num,den)                % Frequency response of analog filter

Figure contains 2 axes objects. Axes object 1 contains an object of type line. Axes object 2 contains an object of type line.

Zeros of the filter, returned as an n-length column vector. If n is odd, z has length n–1.

Poles of the filter, returned as an n-length column vector.

Gain of the filter, returned as a scalar.

Algorithms

Chebyshev Type II filters are monotonic in the passband and equiripple in the stopband. The pole locations are the inverse of the pole locations of the cheb1ap function, whose poles are evenly spaced about an ellipse in the left half plane. The Chebyshev Type II stopband edge angular frequency ω0 is set to 1 for a normalized result. This value is the frequency at which the stopband begins. The filter has a magnitude response of 10–Rs/20.

Chebyshev Type II filters are sometimes called inverse Chebyshev filters because of their relationship to Chebyshev Type I filters. The cheb2ap function is a modification of the Chebyshev Type I prototype algorithm:

  1. cheb2ap replaces the frequency variable ω with 1/ω, turning the lowpass filter into a highpass filter while preserving the performance at ω = 1.

  2. cheb2ap subtracts the filter transfer function from unity.

The transfer function is given by

H(s)=z(s)p(s)=k(sz(1))(sz(2))...(sz(n))(sp(1))(sp(2))...(sp(n)).
