Bilinear Approximation to nth order High Pass Chebychev Filter.

Cuthbert Nyack
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 quadratic factors.
Fn = 2 shows the pole locations for the continuous Chebychev filter and the discrete Bilinear approximation.

To design a filter which has a gain of ~ -3dB at 0.28ws, ~ -80dB at 0.2ws and a passband ripple of 0.1dB, proceed as follows:-

Set BL = 150, WL to 210 and R = 0.1 to locate the frequency markers and set the pass band ripple.
Adjust N, fc/fs until the conditions are met.
In this case N = 14 and fc/fs = 0.279.

The last entry in the first line of white text shows the gain at 0.28ws as -2.575dB and the second line shows the attenuation at 0.2ws is -84.78dB.
Changing Fn to 1 shows the quadratic factors needed to realize the filter and Fn = 2 show the poles.
