Gaussian Lowpass Filter Poles
(to 6 dB & to 12 dB)

Filter Gaussian to 12 dB (Analog Devices) - RF Cafe

Click here for the Analog Devices (Fig. 10) document containing the graph.

A Gaussian filter is a filter whose impulse response is a Gaussian function. Gaussian filters are designed to give no overshoot to a step function input while minimizing the rise and fall time. This behavior is closely connected to the fact that the Gaussian filter has the minimum possible group delay. Mathematically, a Gaussian filter modifies the input signal by convolution with a Gaussian function; this transformation is also known as the Weierstrass transform. - Wikipedia

See the online filter calculators and plotters here.

Here are the lowpass prototype poles for a Gaussian filter to 6 dB and to 12 dB. Lowpass prototype inductor and capacitor values are here.


Gaussian to 6 dB, Gaussian to 12 dB Copyright © 2006 The McGraw-Hill CompaniesNote*: The values given in the two tables below have been edited to agree with those in Table XI and Table XII in "AN-649: Using the Analog Devices Active Filter Design Tool." Even it contains an extraneous number in the 3rd-order Gaussian to 12 dB table. The values given in Chapter 8 of Analog Device's Design Handbook for both the Gaussian to 6 dB and Gaussian to 12 dB appear to be wrong (they are what I originally used). Always be sure to verify critical references.
