# cheb1ap

Chebyshev Type I analog lowpass filter prototype

## Syntax

``[z,p,k] = cheb1ap(n,Rp)``

## Description

example

````[z,p,k] = cheb1ap(n,Rp)` returns the poles and gain of an order `n` Chebyshev Type I analog lowpass filter prototype with `Rp` dB of ripple in the passband.```

## Examples

collapse all

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``` ## Input Arguments

collapse all

Filter order, specified as an integer.

Data Types: `single` | `double`

Passband ripple, specified as a scalar in decibels.

Data Types: `single` | `double`

## Output Arguments

collapse all

Zeros of the filter, returned as a matrix.

Poles of the filter, returned as an `n`-length column vector.

Gain of the filter, returned as a scalar. `z` is an empty matrix because no zeros exist for this filter design.

## Algorithms

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.

The transfer function is given by

`$H\left(s\right)=\frac{z\left(s\right)}{p\left(s\right)}=\frac{k}{\left(s-p\left(1\right)\right)\left(s-p\left(2\right)\right)\dots \left(s-p\left(n\right)\right)}.$`
