.

Filters may be classified as either digital or analog.

. Digital filters are implemented using a digital computer or

special purpose digital hardware. EEE 309 Analog filters may be classified as either passive or active and

.

usually implemented with R, L, and C components and operational amplifiers.

are An active filter is one that, along with R, L, and C components, also

.

contains an energy source, such as that derived from an operational

amplifier. A passive filter is one that contains only R, L, and C components. It is

.

not necessary that all three be present at the same time. L is often omitted

(on purpose) from passive filter design because of the size and cost of inductors and they also carry along an R that must be included in the design.
