LC Butterworth Filter Calculator

This calculator calculates the capacitor and inductor values for an LC Butterworth filter for a given order up to 10.  The results are based on scaled prototype filters. 

LC filters are typically used for higher frequencies - the mega Hertz range.  For audio filters check out our active filter calculators

Prototype filters with cut off at 1rad/sec and resistor of 1 ohm:

 

Here are the prototype Buterworth filter elements -

Filter scaling equatiions:

C'=(R/R')(w/w')*C

L'= (R'*R)(w/w')*L

Where the ' designates the new desired filter characteristics.
