Design hairpin filter around specified frequency

Since R2021b


hpfilter = design(hpfilterobj,frequency) designs a hairpin filter around the specified frequency.


hpfilter = design(___,Name=Value) designs a hairpin filter with additional options specified by name-value arguments.


PCB components designed using the design function operate around the specified frequency with a 10-15% tolerance.

Design a Hairpin filter with a Chebyshev response at 1.8 GHz and a fractional bandwidth of 10 percent.

hpfilt = design(filterHairpin,1.8e9,FBW=10,FilterType='Chebyshev');

Design a 5th order tapped input hairpin filter with a Chebyshev response at 1.8 GHz and a fractional bandwidth of 10 percent.

hpfilt = filterHairpin(FeedType='Tapped')
hpfilt =

Input Arguments

collapse all

Hairpin filter, specified as a filterHairpin object.

Example: hpfilterobj = filterHairpin; design(hpfilterobj,2e9) designs a hairpin filter around a frequency of 2 GHz.

Design frequency of the hairpin filter, specified as a real positive scalar in hertz.

Example: 5e9

Data Types: double

Name-Value Arguments

Example: RippleFactor=0.02

Type of filter, specified as 'Butterworth', or 'Chebyshev'.

Data Types: char | string

Passband factor of the Chebyshev filter, specified as positive scalar in decibels. For Butterworth filter, the passband factor is not required.

Data Types: double

Output Arguments
