Chebyshev Type I analog lowpass filter prototype


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


[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


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.
