Gaussian Lowpass Filter Prototype Element Values
(to 6 dB & to 12 dB)

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

Click here for the Analog Devices document containing the graph.

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.

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

See the online filter calculators and plotters here.

Complex Gaussian poles are here.

Denormalization of values is here.
