data filter - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

I'm looking for an active filter for my 10kbps TTL data line.

Any ideas what the lowest possible Fc can be for the filter? Any suggestions for MFG's of such filters?

Thank you

The answer to your question probably comes from several other questions:
1. Why do you want a filter at all?
2. Where is the data going?
3. How much stop-band attenuation do you really need?
4. How much are you willing to pay for the very narrowest possible bandwidth?

The (unattainable!) limit would be 5 kHz. Any reasonably narrow filter will either require a phase equalizer to remove inter-symbol interference, or be many stages of (approximately) linear phase filtering, such as Bessel filters.

Most filters are either custom-made (read $$$) or do-it-yourself with building blocks from an IC company such as Linear Technology ( LTC offers free design software for their chips.

Good Luck!
