  Electronic filter - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The oldest forms of electronic filters are passive analog linear filters, constructed using only resistors and capacitors or resistors and inductors.
A filter in which the signal passes through an inductor, or in which a capacitor provides a path to earth, therefore presents less attenuation to low-frequency signals than high-frequency signals and is a low-pass filter.
Active filters are implemented using a combination of passive and active (amplifying) components.

 Voltage-controlled filter - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A voltage-controlled filter (VCF) is an electronic filter whose operating characteristics can be controlled by means of a control voltage applied to one or more inputs.
A VCF allows its cutoff frequency and Q factor to be continuously varied; it usually gives a lowpass response, but may also be switchable to allow highpass, bandpass or even notch responses.
A VCF is an example of an active non-linear filter: however, if its control voltage is kept constant, it will behave as a linear filter.

The output of the sampler 58 is passed, via a low-pass filter 60 and an A/D converter 62, to a Y memory 64.
Turning now to the position of the linear equalizer 28 along the path, it can be seen that because the output of the Nyquist filter 42 is 32 bit in a complex format, which is then converted to a 16 bit real format, the linear equalizer must have sufficient capacity to handle such a signal.
A linear equalizer (112) of a system (110) operates upon the signal to pre-distort the signal in a manner that compensated for subsequent linear distortion.

The Dolby filter, which varies the amplitude of the output signal as a function of the level and frequency of the input, is an example of a nonlinear filter system.
To improve the performance of the filter (43) for the first filtering problem, H (jw) is designed to be a fifth order low-pass type 1 Chebyshev filter with cut off frequency 0.5 rad/sec and 0.5 dB of ripple in the pass-band to ensure a satisfactory frequency response over the pass band.
When using linear structures for the attenuation of signal energy in a physical system, the attenuated energy is usually absorbed by devices such as dampers in mechanical systems and resistors in electronic circuits and transformed to other energy forms such as thermal energy.

 Linear Time-Invariant Filters   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
filter as linear or nonlinear, and time-invariant or time-varying.
Time-varying filters, on the other hand, can generate audible sideband images of the frequencies present in the input signal (when they vary at audio rates).
linearity and time-invariance will be formally introduced, together with some elementary mathematical aspects of signals.

 Finite Impulse Response FAQ: Properties
"Linear Phase" refers to the condition where the phase response of the filter is a linear (straight-line) function of frequency (excluding phase wraps at +/- 180 degrees).
Minimum-phase filters (which might better be called "minimum delay" filters) have less delay than linear-phase filters with the same amplitude response, at the cost of a non-linear phase characteristic, a.k.a.
Similarly, for interpolating filters (in which zeroes are inserted between the input samples to raise the sampling rate) you don't actually have to multiply the inserted zeroes with their corresponding FIR coefficients and sum the result; you just omit the multiplication-additions that are associated with the zeroes (because they don't change the result anyway.)

 Nonlinear Signal Processing   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
For example, it is well known that linear filters can remove additive high frequency noise as long as the signal and the noise do not overlap in the frequency domain.
It is well known that the median filter is optimal among the set of all stack filters for minimizing the output variance when the input distribution is symmetric and no constraints are imposed.
A filter is robust if outliers, or more generally, deviations from the statistical assumptions for which the filter is optimal in one way or another, do not greatly affect the performance of the filter.

 Polarizer
It's a very visual filter with which to work: As you rotate it in its mount, the effects are immediately noticeable.
A polarizing filter can deepen the color and contrast in a sky (the most intense effects are always 90° from the sun or light source), eliminate glare from wet or reflective surfaces and cut through atmospheric haze to increase clarity and contrast in a scene.
The linear element polarizes the light, and the wave retardant de-polarizes it, and then the beam-splitting meter polarizes the light again for proper exposure.

 Spatial Filters - Mean Filter   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
Mean filtering is usually thought of as a convolution filter.
Mean filtering is most commonly used as a simple method for reducing noise in an image.
In general the mean filter acts as a lowpass frequency filter and, therefore, reduces the spatial intensity derivatives present in the image.

 Linear Filter Functions
This is a linear filtering function which is based on a kernel with gaussian weights.
This function is typical of using filters with nonnegative impulse responses to smooth noisy data.
All linear filter methods can be realized with this function and an appropriate kernel.

 Frequently asked questions about polarizers and UV filters
The idea is to use a linear polarizer up front to get rid of some linearly polarized light you don't want (glare off shiny surfaces, for example, will have a large linearly polarized component), and then it "stirs up" the result so you don't have linearly polarized light bouncing around in the camera.
Both of the filters filter out the UV light that can cause a blueish haze on your pictures, since normal film is not only sensitive to visible light, but also to UV.
Because the UV is filtered out, you may notice the sky in your pictures is not as deep blue as it used to be.

 ICMC'96: Experiments with Non-Linear Filters
Although the filter exhibits useful behaviour without it, we have found that the most striking effects are dependent on its inclusion, despite the concomitant need for a DC removal filter on the output.
However, unlike the response of a linear comb filter, in which the peaks are regular in spacing, width and amplitude, this filter exhibits marked irregularities in all those aspects.
Alternatively, the formula can be regarded as a non-linear comb filter with (typically) a low pass or low-frequency band-pass linear filter on the output, serving primarily to remove those extreme high-frequency components which will inevitably arise from the non-linear behaviour.

 ESS 265: Chapter 9/Linear Prediction Filters and Neural Networks
Linear prediction filters are used to describe the relation of one output, or system variable, to one or more inputs.
For autoregressive filters, exponential decay occurs as a single spike at the first lag; oscillations appear as adjacent spikes of opposite sign in the first two lags.
Coefficient versus lag for three moving average linear prediction filters: one in which the time series showed exponential decay; one in which the time series showed recurrence; and one in which the output was controlled by the derivative of the input.

To convert a normalized amplitude response curve to a curve representing a filter whose corner frequency is not at one Hertz, multiplying any number on the frequency axis by the intended corner or ripple frequency scales the frequency axis.
For active filters, the THD is usually specified in dBc (dB relative to the amplitude of the fundamental frequency component) and at a specific frequency and amplitude (ex.
In applications where linear phase is critical and long phase delay cannot be tolerated, a linear active Bessel or a constant delay filter may be a better selection.

“Linear phase” means the phase varies linearly with the frequency, which means (see eqn above) that the delay is independent of frequency.
Filters of a higher order are more complicated to implement, either electronically (for analog filters) or computationally (for digital filters), but they offer improved performance – up to a point.
Above examples of types of filters are all “classical” filters that have been around a long time andwhcih were first developed in analog form.

 Linear Kalman Filter Theory   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
where z is the vector of measurements as a linear function of the states x, and v is a vector of random Gaussian measurement error.
The Kalman Filter uses the assumptions that process and measurement may be inaccurate due to Gaussian distributions of noise to iteratively create a Least Squares Estimate of the true state from the states previously encountered.
The filter tends to function better with a rising signal to noise ratio and is easily applied to a multitude of dynamic systems due to its flexibility and ease of implementation.

 The Wiener filter
The Wiener filter is the MSE-optimal stationary linear filter for images degraded by additive noise and blurring.
Calculation of the Wiener filter requires the assumption that the signal and noise processes are second-order stationary (in the random process sense).
This illustrates an important point about using MSE as a criteria for global filtering: regions are given priority for restoration according to how large they are, rather than their visual importance.

 Sharing Digital Photography Worldwide :: View topic - The Circular Polarizing Filter
This filter is appears to be a single piece, and when screwed onto the lens, the top portion of the filter still turns to adjust the amount of effect.
Light reflected from the clouds is not polarized, so it passes through the filter in much greater proportion than the sky light (though the filter does remove a lot of the light from a non-polarized source, much like a neutral-density filter), so the contrast is increased and the cloud structure stands out.
Do make sure you are using the filters in circumstances where they have some polarized light to filter (like the display cabinet or at an angle to a window.) You should be able to rotate the filter until it blocks most of the glare that is being reflected from the glass.
