Analog Filter Design Toolbox

by

 

27 Dec 2005 (Updated )

GUI to design and simulate active (opamp) LP and HP Bessel, Butter, Cheby, and Elliptic filters.

Utility_EngOutput(num, arg1,arg2,low,high)
function [argOut1, argOut2] = Utility_EngOutput(num, arg1,arg2,low,high)
% Utility_EngOutput is a subfile of the AnalogFilter GUI collection
% Examples:
% EngOutput(123456) returns '123.4k' (by default uses 4 sig digits)
% EngOutput(123456,3) returns '123k' (sig digits specified)
% EngOutput(12343456,'Ohms') returns '123.4kOhms' 
% EngOutput(123456,3,'Ohms') returns '123kOhms' 
% EngOutput(1,'F',4,-12,-6) limits the response between pF and uF (i.e. '1.000e6uF')
% [sMan, nExp] = EngOutput(1e-6,'F',4,-12,-6) returns sMan='1' and nExp=-6
