    LPF2 minimum sampling frequency


      Estimated Cypress community and technical staff. I would like to ask you what's the minimum sampling frequency (analog clock frequency) admited by LPF2 low pass filters. I'm currently working on low frequency applications with these filters in 29466 PSoC1 devices.


      Thank you in advance.

          Kindly refer to LPF2 Datasheet. You can go to a minimum of 12kHz sampling frequency. You will need a column clock of 48kHz.

            Thank you for your answer Sampath @SampathS_11.


            I must say that this feature (the lowest clock frequency admited) is presented in a way that seems to be inconsistent in the datasheet (LPF2 V4.10) .

            Let me explain:

            1. On tables 3 and 4 it indicates that the minimum corner frequency (assuming a Butterworth filter as a case study) is 1KHz, with an oversamplign ratio (OSR) of 100 times. Therefore, the sampling frequency should be 1KHz x 100= 100KHz (and the corresponding column clock of 400KHz).
            2. In the section Features and Overview, it says that the corner frequency ranges from 20Hz to 180KHz. This contradicts what tables 3 and 4 state.
            3. The table (whithout nubmering) between tables 4 and 5 depicts a filter configuration having a sample frequency of 12KHz, which again conflicts with the content of tables 3 and 4.
            4. The section Operational Limits says that the corner frequency has been tested down to 10Hz with an OSR of 100 times. This implies a sampling frequency of 10Hz x 100=1000Hz. This contradicts what is stated in Features and Overview, and tables 3 and 4.


            I would like to ask you if you can kindly clarify these issues or indicate a correct way to interpret the documentation of this module.


            Thank you in advance
