CFOA Based Low Pass and High Pass Ladder Filter—A New Configuration
Abstract: A new technique using signal flow graph for conversion of ladder based filter into CFOA based filter has been proposed. The proposed technique converts the existing LC ladder based filter into CFOA in low pass and high pass configuration. The design of low pass filter and high pass filter has been realized using the proposed technique. The proposed configuration is implemented using CFOA as an active device and all the capacitors are grounded. Simulation has been carried out using simulation software I-cap. The simulation results have been demonstrated and discussed.
