a) 0≥ 20 log|H(jΩ)|

b) 20 log|H(jΩ)| ≥ KP

c) 20 log|H(jΩ)| ≤ KS

d) All of the mentioned

View Answer

Explanation: We are required to design a low pass Butterworth filter to meet the following frequency domain specifications.

KP ≤ 20 log|H(jΩ)| ≤ 0

and 20 log|H(jΩ)| ≤ KS

9. The cutoff frequency of the low pass Butterworth filter is the arithmetic mean of the two cutoff frequencies as found above.

a) True

b) False

View Answer

Explanation: The arithmetic mean of the two cutoff frequencies as found above is the final cutoff frequency of the low pass Butterworth filter.

10. What is the lowest order of the Butterworth filter with a pass band gain KP= -1 dB at ΩP= 4 rad/sec and stop band attenuation greater than or equal to 20dB at ΩS= 8 rad/sec?

a) 4

b) 5

c) 6

d) 3

View Answer

Explanation: We know that the equation for the order of the Butterworth filter is given as

From the given question,

KP= -1 dB, ΩP= 4 rad/sec, KS= -20 dB and ΩS= 8 rad/sec

Upon substituting the values in the above equation, we get

N=4.289

Rounding off to the next largest integer, we get N=5.
