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 reference line in table) or an input inductor (bottom 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.
