Razor-sharp CW filter

Posted on Feb 20, 2013

The circuit consists of four stages of active bandpass filtering provided by two type-µ integrated-circuit dual op amps and includes a simple threshold detector (diodes Dl and D2) between stages 2 and 3 to reduce low-level background noise. Each of the four filter stages acts as a narrow bandpass filter with an audio bandpass centered at 750 Hz.
