Chebyshev Lowpass Filter Poles

Chebyshev poles lie along an ellipse, rather than a circle like the Butterworth and Bessel. Prototype value real and imaginary pole locations (ω=1 at the ripple attenuation cutoff point) for Chebyshev filters are presented in the table below.

See the online filter calculators and plotters here.

Pole locations are calculated as follows, where K=1,2,...,n. n is the filter order.
