Abstract : Maximally flat magnitude driving point functions, in spite of easily visualized applications, appear to be less well known than the corresponding transfer functions of Butterworth and other types. This article describes a class of such maximally flat immittances of various order, demonstrates their positive real character, and discusses a particular form of realization, usable up to and including order 5, which makes use of parallel connections of resonant branches for admittances and series connections of dual resonators for impedances. An application is mentioned in which the maximally flat impedance is used as an interstage to achieve a flat amplifier transfer impedance. (Author)
