Low-pass Sallen-Key filter circuit




The Butterworth Sallen-Key low-pass filter is a second-order active filter. Vref provides a DC offset to accommodate for single-supply applications. A Sallen-Key filter is usually preferred when small Q factor is desired, noise rejection is prioritized and when a non-inverting gain of the filter stage is required. The Butterworth topology provides a maximally flat gain in the pass band.
  • Input: Vi = -2.45V to 2.45 V
  • Output: Vo = 0.05 V to 4.95 V
  • Supply:
    • Vcc = 5 V
    • Vee = 0 V
  • Gain: 1 V/V
  • Cutoff frequency: 10 kHz
  • Vref = 2.5 V
