Analog and Digital Filters

This  chapter  provides  an  overview of the subject of analog  and  digital  filters describing the basic types, their primary characteristics, some key design criteria, practical considerations in component selection, and modern design tools. Although the subject of filters is quite broad and widely discussed in the literature, fortunately for designers much of the work required to design filters for modern applications has been greatly facilitated by advances in hardware and software.
