  • This audio noise filter circuit is a bandpass filter for audio frequency band. It filters unwanted signals that are lower or higher than the audio frequencies.
    It has 2 filters: a low pass filter and a high pass filter in a cascade configuration.
    Both filters are second-order filters with a 24 dB/octave fiter capability. The 3 dB cut-off freq. are 11.8 Hz and 10.7 kHz.

    The bandpass characteristic can be changed by changing the values of the capacitors and resistors. If you want to raise the bottom cut-off freq., you must reduce the values of C1 up to C4. For lowering the bottom cut-off freq. you must increase the values.

    If you want to reduce the top cut-off f you must raise the values of R5 up to R8 and decrease it in order to increase the top cut-off frequency.

      Não entendi nada.
      Poderiam me explicar algo mais simples por exemplo um filtro com elementos passivos.

      If you want use this filter in a DC voltage application and improve the IC ‘s used in the schematic use IC part number OPA2107G4 from Texas Instruments . Also use part# 987-1173-ND from DigiKey it is a trimmer resistor to replace R5-R8 in the schematic . If you do this improvement it will give you a better filter with even less noise and give you an adjustable upper cut off frequency. The trimmer is adjustable from 2 ohm – 2 Mohm.
