Chebyshev Filter Lowpass Prototype Element Values

Simulations of Normalized and Denormalized LP, HP, BP, and BS Filters

Bandpass and Bandstop Filters

The table below lists prototype element values for the normalized lowpass function, which assumes a cutoff frequency of 1 rad/sec and source and load impedances of 1 Ω. Either an input capacitor (top title line in table) or an input inductor (bottom title line in table) can be used. Note that for even order filters, the 0 Hz (DC) insertion loss is equal to the ripple value.

Convert values to other cutoff frequencies, impedances, and to highpass, bandpass or bandstop using denormalization equations. Complex poles are here.

 Capacitor Input Inductor Input

* Note: In the tables below of normalized Chebyshev filter components values, the right-most column is labeled "RLoad." This is necessary because even-order Chebyshev filters are not realizable when the source and termination impedances are exactly equal. A scaling factor is included for the termination impedance as shown.

 About RF Cafe Copyright: 1996 - 2024Webmaster:    Kirt Blattenberger,    BSEE - KB3UON RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
