Filter Basics Part 5: Lumped Element and Distributed Element Filter Construction


So far, in our Filter Basics Series, we have covered how to make filters out of individual resistors (Rs), inductors (Ls), and capacitors (Cs). Building on this, we also provided the basics of a lumped element filter construction in part 4. In this same post, we gave an overview of several different filter technologies that rely on what is known as a distributed element construction approach. Now in this post, we will expand on these two filter construction approaches and discuss their pros and cons to show when each approach should be used based on your application needs.
