Keywords: low-output-impedance, high-input-impedance, non-inverting, inverting, first-order, all-pass filter, multiphase sinusoidal oscillator, frequency of oscillation, oscillation condition, difference amplifier


First-order all-pass filter circuits, both non-inverting and inverting, could be the focus of this article, which could include the design and implementation of first-order all-pass filter circuits. Using a standard integrated circuit (IC): AD830, as well as a single resistor and a single capacitor, the proposed first-order all-pass filters could well be built. The AD830 is an integrated circuit (IC) manufactured by Analog Devices Corporation that is available for purchase. The pole frequency and phase response of the proposed all-pass filters could well be directly modified by attuning the resistor in the circuit. Aside from that, the output voltage has a low impedance, making it appropriate for use in voltage-mode circuits. In addition, the proposed first-order all-pass filter is used to design the multiphase sinusoidal oscillator, which serves as an example of an application wherein the oscillation condition can be adjusted without impacting the frequency. The gain and phase responses of the proposed all-pass filters, as well as their phase response adjustment, time-domain response, and total harmonic distortion of signals, are all shown via computer simulation using the PSPICE software, as well as their experimental results. For the proposed circuits, a statistical analysis is coupled with a Monte Carlo simulation to estimate the performance of the circuits. In accordance with the results of this study, a theoretical design suitable for developing a worksheet for teaching and learning in electrical and electronic engineering laboratories has already been developed
