Anti-Alias Filtering: Remove aliases from your results

Stand-Alone Board - Eurocard Exposed
Sample System

Include one of these signal interface boards to add filtering – and other features – to your data acquisition hardware system.

Digitizing a signal destroys all evidence of any frequencies higher than half the sampling rate. Samples of these higher frequencies map exactly into their lower frequency aliases. You cannot detect any one of the higher frequencies in your sampled data. But you do detect each alias. And this corrupts your results.

A suitable analog filter, placed between a sensor and any analog-to-digital converter, effectively takes out unwanted higher frequencies.
