The difference between high-pass and low-pass filters | high low pass filter

It only needs one op amp. Multi-pass (channel) filters are often used as band-pass filters, and it only requires an op amp. Figures 2 and 3 show the topology of the biquad filter section. Each structure can realize a complete universal filter transfer function. The circuit shown in Figure 2 uses three operational amplifiers, and the purpose of using the central operational amplifier is only to make the overall feedback path negative feedback. Only two op amps are required for the same filter with switched capacitors. References 1 and 2 describe these filter structures.

The low-pass filter allows signals from DC to a certain cutoff frequency (fCUTOFF) to pass. Set the high-pass and band-pass coefficients of the second-order transfer function of the universal filter to zero, that is, a second-order low-pass filter transfer formula is obtained:
For frequencies higher than f0, the signal drops at the rate of the square of the frequency. At frequency f0, the damping value attenuates the output signal. You can cascade multiple such filter sections to get a higher order (steeper roll-off) filter. Suppose the design requires a fourth-order Bessel low-pass filter with a cut-off frequency of 10kHz. According to Reference 1, the roll-off frequencies of each part are 16.13 and 18.19 kHz, and the damping values ​​are 1.775 and 0.821, respectively, and the high-pass, band-pass and low-pass coefficients of these two filter zones are 0, 0, and 1, respectively. You can use these two filter parts with the above parameters to implement the required filter. The cut-off frequency is the frequency point at which the output signal attenuates 3 dB.
