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.

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 ...
