Comparison of the Frequency Response of Chebyshev and Elliptic Filters.
The applet below shows a comparison of the frequency responses of low pass
Chebyshev and Elliptic filters. The Chebyshev has only poles in the passband
while the Elliptic has poles in the passband as well as zeros in the stopband.
The Elliptic gives a faster increase in the attenuation after the cutoff
frequency but has "rebounds" in the frequency response which the Chebyshev does
In the applet below, both the Chebyshev and Elliptic approximations
give an attenuation equal to the ripple at the cutoff frequency. n is
specified for the Elliptic and the attenuation is calculated.
magnitude response is shown as red-pink for the Elliptic and
green-cyan for the Chebyshev.
