Abstract

The classic problem of achieving high Q, band pass, inductorless filters has been traditionally attacked by applying active RC networks. This approach suffers from the faults of poor economy, lack of stability of performance with time and temperature, and high network performance sensitivity to component changes. The problem is reviewed from the aspect of applying techniques other than operational amplifier RC filters. The techniques presented are those of N-Path (switching) and Digital Filters. The underlying theory of both methods is explored and a design example for each of the techniques is presented. These designs are then compared on the basis of design complexity, parts cost (count) and ease of fabrication. On the basis of the comparison of designs, it is shown which technique is more economical for the problem under discussion.
