Elliptic Cauer Filter Formula, Equations, & Calculations

- the basic calculations formulae and equations for the Cauer / Elliptic filter

The calculations for the elliptic filter of Cauer filter are a little more complicated than those for many other forms of filter.

There are a number of Cauer / elliptic filter calculations and equations.

Elliptic filter gain equation

The equation for the gain of a low-pass elliptic or Cauer filter as a function of angular frequency ω is given by:

Elliptic Cauer filter equation

    Rn is the nth-order elliptic rational function
    ω is the frequency of the response in radians
    ωo is the cut-off frequency in radians
    ε is the ripple factor
    ξ is the selectivity factor

GaN’s Ground-Floor Opportunity
The electronics industry has a major role to play in helping to save energy, by enabling better equipment and new ways of working and living that that are more efficient and environmentally friendly. Maintaining the pace of technological progress is key, but improvements become both smaller and harder to achieve as each technology matures. We can see this trend in the development of power semiconductors, as device designers seek more complex and expensive ways to reduce switching energy and RDS(ON) against silicon’s natural limitations.
