Band pass filtering techniques have been a challenging task due to requirement of keeping Quality factor, gain and mid-frequency of the filter independent of each other. Other most important aspect is keeping the filter stable, keeping mid-frequency immune to circuit component tolerances and to achieve the mid-frequency at the accurate value. The Biquad family of topologies are typically used for a stabilized filtering application, however the design requirements on Biquad topology for low frequency application is still a challenge. The requirements become more stringent for bandwidth curve, roll-off curve and preciseness of frequency filtering as we move down to low frequency applications where the shift in few Hz would cause great frequency errors.. This paper evaluate the performance and design improvements for the Biquad filter topologies for designing a extremely stable and precise narrow band-pass filter at low frequency.
