Problem One (25 Points): RC-filters and Ideal Filters
i) Obtain the impulse response of a discrete filter implementation of two first order
analog RC-filters in cascade; ii) provide its Z-transform, with a pole-zero diagram, and
associated region of convergence; and iii) provide its frequency response as well as a plot
of the magnitude of its frequency response. Use MATLAB to assist you in your
calculations and plots. Use also the following information about first order analog RCfilters to assist you in obtaining your answers:
The impulse response of a causal RC-filter is given by
1
h( t ) = T { ( t )} = ho e t u( t ); =
, h0 =
RC
The product RC is called the time-constant of the RC-filter since it can be shown that
when t = t r 10 RC , the impulse response h( t ) 0 due to the fact that ( e 10 0) . The
value t = t r 10 RC is called the rise time of the RC-filter since it is the elapsed time
from the minimum value y( t ) = 0 to the maximum value y ( t ) = 1 of the step response

y ( t ) = T {u( t )} =

h0

## (1 e ) u( t ) . The normalized magnitude of the frequency response of

t

the RC-filter is given in the plot below. The frequency response of this causal first order
RC-filter is given by
