Used in applications where maximum pass band flatness is required.
Designed to have as flat a frequency response as possible in the passband. It is also referred to as a maximally flat (no ripples) magnitude filter.
One main disadvantage is that it achieves this pass band flatness at the expense of a wide transition band as the filter changes from the pass band to the stop band. It also has poor phase characteristics as well.
Type of analog linear filter with a maximally flat group/phase delay (maximally linear phase response), which preserves the wave shape of filtered signals in the passband. Bessel filters are often used in audio crossover systems.
Optimized to give a steeper roll off.
Have a steeper roll-off and more passband ripple (type I) or stopband ripple (type II) than Butterworth filters.
