@richgain thanks for noticing this, this was a typo and this should have said Hz not KHz. Appropriate changes have now been made.
3 weeks agoExcellent work.
3 weeks agoAt the end of the low-pass filter section, it says:
From looking at the frequency response graphs and the table for the low pass filter designed, we can see that frequencies of up to 200KHz are...
