Join Barron Stone for an in-depth discussion in this video Filter signals, part of Electronics Foundations: Semiconductor Devices.
- Building a passive first-order low-pass…or high-pass RC filter…is as simple as connecting a single resistor…in series with a capacitor.…When the input signal is applied to the resistor…and the output is measured across the capacitor…it creates a low-pass filter.…And when the location of the resistor and the capacitor…are smocked with each other…so that the output is measured…across the resistor,…it produces a high-pass filter.…The advantage of these passive circuits…is that they're easy to build,…it only takes two components,…and they're easy to design.…
The equation for the cutoff frequency…is simply one over two Pi times the resistance…and the capacitance values.…Now, a major disadvantage of these passive RC circuits…is that since they only use passive components…the output signal can never be greater…than the input signal.…At the very best the input and output…can have the same power.…The attenuation can really start to add up…when we need to combine multiple filters together.…Additionally, the impedance of whatever load…
