    A) FIGURE 2 shows the response of a first-order filter to a step input. Estimate the half-power cut-off frequency of the filter and sketch its frequency and phase response.

    B) Select (with justification) from the op-amps listed in TABLE A those which are NOT suitable for use as the active component in the filter of (a) above.

    PART A:

    The general Laplace transfer function for a first order low pass filter is given by (1).

    T(s) = 1 / (1 + s Tau) (1)

    Where Tau is the time constant of the filter (time taken for the time domain response to rise to 63.2%* of the value of the peak of a step input).

    We can define ...

    Solution Summary

    (a) The response of a first-order filter (as shown in a curcuit diagram) to a step input. Estimation of the half-power cut-off frequency of the filter and its frequency and phase responses are sketched.

    (b) Selection with appropriate justificationfrom the op-amps listed in TABLE A those which are NOT suitable for use as the active component in the filter of (a) above.
