Bilinear Approximation to nth order High Pass
Frequency Response, Transfer function and pole locations are shown by
the applet below.
Fn = 0 shows the frequency response.
Fn = 1 shows the transfer function represented as a product of
Fn = 2 shows the pole locations for the continuous Butterworth filter and the discrete Bilinear approximation.
To design a filter which has a gain of ~ -3dB at 0.36ws and ~ -50dB at
0.3ws, proceed as
Set BL = 225 and WL to 270 to locate the frequency markers.
fc/fs until the conditions are met.
In this case N = 14 and
fc/fs = 0.359.
The last entry in the first line of white text
shows the gain at 0.36ws as -2.76dB and the second line
shows the attenuation at 0.3ws is -52.15dB.
Changing Fn to 1 shows the quadratic factors needed to realize the filter and Fn = 2 show the poles.
