Step Response of FieldDAQ Filters

    Last Modified: August 1, 2019

    The shape of the magnitude and phase responses of a filter impacts how signals look in the time domain. The step response of a filter is typically used to identify the behavior of a filter in the time domain.

    Three important factors of the filter step response are group delay, rise time, and overshoot/undershoot. The three filters differ instep response across signals in the transition band:

    • Brickwall—Has the longest group delay. The output signal shows overshoot and undershoot.
    • Butterworth—Has a shorter group delay and the longest rise time. The output signal shows overshoot.
    • Comb—Has the shortest group delay and good rise time. The output signal does not show overshoot or undershoot.

    Refer to the FD-116xx Specifications for details on the amount of variation in the response you can expect for different input frequency ranges.
