Adjustable high-frequency notch filter

Although you can obtain universal, resistor-programmable switched -capacitor filters that are configurable as notch filters, most cannot operate at bandwidths higher than 100 kHz. Further, the typically 16- to 20-pin packages do not include a continuous -time, antialiasing filter to prevent spurious signals from appearing at the output. By using an eight-pin, dual operational amplifier and an eight-pin, switched-capacitor bandpass filter, you can construct a notch filter (Figure 1). IC2, a TLC082 is a dual BiCMOS op amp, replacing the older JFET-input stage with lower noise CMOS but retaining the bipolar output for high drive capability.
