Abstract

Low frequency continuous time filters are essential analog blocks for biomedical applications. Integrating such filters having large time constants is difficult as it requires large component values. A novel approach to scale down the pole frequency is presented. A 5-bit reduction in the cut off frequency is achieved. This is made possible through adding a passive resistor in the forward path of the op-amp based integrator introducing a difference term of the pole frequency. Also, the filter topology is modified to avoid changing the quality factor. As an example, a 2nd order low pass filter is designed and simulated. Simulation results show that the pole frequency is scaled down from 1.43 MHz to 4.97 kHz while maintaining tuning of 30% around the nominal value by controlling only one resistor.
