Active band-reject filter

Posted on Oct 18, 2012

A filter with a band-reject characteristic is frequently referred to as a notch filter. A typical circuit using a µ 741 is the unity-gain configuration for this type of active filter shown. The filter response curve shown is a second-order band-reject filter with a notch frequency of 3 kHz. The resulting Q of this filter is about 23, with a notch depth of - 31 dB.

Although three passive networks are used in this application, the operational amplifier has become a sharply tuned low-frequency filter without the use of inductors or large-value capacitors.
