Chebyshev Type I analog lowpass filter prototype
Design a 6th-order Chebyshev Type I analog lowpass filter with 3 dB of ripple in the passband. Display its magnitude and phase responses.
[z,p,k] = cheb1ap(6,3); % Lowpass filter prototype [num,den] = zp2tf(z,p,k); % Convert to transfer function form freqs(num,den) % Frequency response of analog filter
n— Filter order
Filter order, specified as an integer.
Rp— Passband ripple
Passband ripple, specified as a scalar in decibels.
Chebyshev Type I filters are equiripple in the passband and monotonic in the stopband. The poles are evenly spaced about an ellipse in the left half plane. The Chebyshev Type I passband edge angular frequency ω0 is set to 1.0 for a normalized result. This value is the frequency at which the passband ends. The filter has a magnitude response of 10–Rp/20.

Usage notes and limitations:
All inputs must be constants. Expressions or variables are allowed if their values do not change.
