# cheb1ap

Chebyshev Type I analog lowpass filter prototype

## Syntax

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

## Description

`[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. The function returns the poles in the length `n` column vector `p` and the gain in scalar `k`. `z` is an empty matrix, because there are no zeros. The transfer function is

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

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 is the frequency at which the passband ends and the filter has magnitude response of 10–Rp/20.

## 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```
