smoothing filter

Definitions

Electronics

  • In rectifiers or DC generators, a filter which reduces the AC component of the output, while passing the DC. Also known as ripple filter (1).
  • A filter which blocks all frequencies above a given cutoff frequency, before an analog to digital conversion. The filter insures that no input signals have a higher frequency than half the digital sampling rate. Also called low-pass filter (1), or anti-aliasing filter.
