Compensation Methodology for Error in SK Low-Pass Filter, Caused by Limited GBW


This application report provides a tutorial description of the error analysis for the Sallen-Key active low-pass filter. Additionally, the report introduces a new compensation method to reduce the errors caused by the limited gain-bandwidth of an op amp. Simulation and test data, which demonstrate the performance achieved with this compensation technique are presented.
