# Operational amplifier low pass filter circuit

Operational amplifiers lend themselves to being used for active filter circuits, including a low pass filter circuit. Using a few components they are able to provide high levels of performance.The simplest circuit low pass filter circuit using an operational amplifier simply places a capacitor across the feedback resistor. This has the effect as the frequency rises of increasing the level of feedback as the reactive impedance of the capacitor falls. The break point for this simple type of filter can be calculated very easily by working out the frequency at which the reactance of the capacitor equals the resistance of the resistor. This can be achieved using the formula:

**Xc = 1 / 2 pi f C**

where:

**Xc** is the capacitive reactance in ohms

**pi** is the greek letter and equal to 3.142

**f** is the frequency in Hertz

**C** is the capacitance in Farads

**Operational amplifier circuits with high frequency roll off**

While these operational amplifier circuits are useful to provide a reduction in gain at high frequencies, they only provide an ultimate rate of roll off of 6 dB per octave, i.e. the output voltage halves for every doubling in frequency. This type of filter is known as a one pole filter. Often a much grater rate of rejection is required, and to achieve this it is possible to incorporate a higher performance filter into the feedback circuitry.

### Two pole low pass filter

Although it is possible to design a wide variety of filters with different levels of gain and different roll off patterns using operational amplifiers, the filter described on this page will give a good sure-fire solution. It offers unity gain and a Butterworth response (the flattest response in band, but not the fastest to achieve ultimate roll off out of band).

**Operational amplifier two pole low pass filter**

*Simple sure fire design with Butterworth response and unity gain*

The calculations for the circuit values are very straightforward for the Butterworth response and unity gain scenario. Critical damping is required for the circuit and the ratio of the resistor and capacitor values determines this.

When choosing the values, ensure that the resistor values fall in the region between 10 k ohms and 100 k ohms. This is advisable because the output impedance of the circuit rises with increasing frequency and values outside this region may affect he performance.# Operational Amplifier / Op-Amp Band Pass Filter

The design of band pass filters can become very involved even when using operational amplifiers. However it is possible to simplify the design equations while still being able to retain an acceptable level of performance of the operational amplifier filter for many applications.

**Circuit of the operational amplifier active band pass filter**

As only one operational amplifier is used in the filter circuit, the gain should be limited to five or less, and the Q to less than ten. In order to improve the shape factor of the operational amplifier filter one or more stages can be cascaded. A final point to note is that high stability and tolerance components should be used for both the resistors and the capacitors. In this way the performance of the operational amplifier filter will be obtained.# Operational amplifier high pass filter

Operational amplifiers lend themselves to being used for active filter circuits, including a high pass filter circuit. Using a few components they are able to provide high levels of performance.The simplest circuit high pass filter circuit using an operational amplifier can be achieved by placing a capacitor in series with one of the resistors in the amplifier circuit as shown. The capacitor reactance increases as the frequency falls, and as a result this forms a CR low pass filter providing a roll off of 6 dB per octave. The cut off frequency or break point of the filter can be calculated very easily by working out the frequency at which the reactance of the capacitor equals the resistance of the resistor. This can be achieved using the formula:

**Xc = 1 / 2 pi f C**

**Xc** is the capacitive reactance in ohms
