Abstract : The steady-state and transient response characteristics of a new class of low-pass filters are investigated. The natural frequencies of the proposed filters all lie on catenary contours and the transmission zeros are all at infinity. This class of filters has some favorable transmission properties when both time and frequency domain considerations are important. The response characteristics of this class of filters are compared with those of Butterworth, Thomson and the recent one due to Mullick. It is shown that this class has some advantages when rise-time, overshoot, and 3db frequency of the magnitude response (with no frequency peaking) are all of importance. (Author)
