Model RF Filter

**Library:**RF Blockset / Circuit Envelope / Elements

The Filter block models RF filters of three designs:

Butterworth: Butterworth filters have a magnitude response that is maximally flat in the passband and monotonic overall. This smoothness comes at the price of decreased roll-off steepness.

Chebyshev: Chebyshev Type I filters have ripples of equal magnitude in the passband and monotonic in the stopband.

Inverse Chebyshev: Chebyshev Type II filters have ripples of equal magnitude in the stopband and monotonic in the passband.

Ideal: Ideal filters perfectly allow frequencies in the passband and completely reject frequencies in the stopband.
