Gaussian Lowpass Filter Prototype Element Values
(to 6 dB & to 12 dB)

Filter Gaussian to 12 dB (Analog Devices) - RF Cafe

Click here for the Analog Devices document containing the graph.

The table below lists prototype element values for the normalized lowpass function, which assumes a cutoff frequency of 1 rad/sec and source and load impedances of 1 Ω. Either an input capacitor (top reference line in table) or an input inductor (bottom line in table) can be used.

Convert values to other cutoff frequencies, impedances, and to highpass, bandpass or bandstop using the denormalizing equations here.

See the online filter calculators and plotters here.

Complex Gaussian poles are here.

Denormalization of values is here.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
