Chebyshev Filter Prototype Element Values

The table below lists prototype element values for the normalized lowpass function, which assumes a cutoff frequency of 1 rad/sec and source and load impedances of 1 Ω. Either an input capacitor (top title line in table) or an input inductor (bottom title line in table) can be used. Note that for even order filters, the 0 Hz (DC) insertion loss is equal to the ripple value.

Convert values to other cutoff frequencies, impedances, and to highpass, bandpass or bandstop using the equations here.

See the online filter calculators and plotters here.

Complex poles are here.

Denormalization of values is here.

* Note: In the tables below of normalized Chebyshev filter components values, the right-most column is labeled "RLoad." This is necessary because even-order Chebyshev filters are not realizable when the source and termination impedances are exactly equal. A scaling factor is included for the termination impedance as shown.
