**m Derived High Pass Filter:**

The m Derived High Pass Filter T and π sections are as shown in the Fig. 9.32 (a) and (b).

Consider that the shunt arm of the T section resonates at a frequency of infinite attenuation i.e. f_{∞} which is selected just below cut-off frequency f_{c}. The frequency of resonance is given by,

But for high pass filter, cut-off frequency is given by

Substituting value of f_{c} in the equation for f_{∞},

Simplifying equation (1) further,

**Variations of Characteristic Impedance (Z**_{0}), Attenuation Constant (α) and Phase Shift (β) with Frequency:

_{0}), Attenuation Constant (α) and Phase Shift (β) with Frequency:

The variations of characteristic impedance (Z_{0}), attenuation constant (α) and phase shift (β) with frequency are as shown in the Fig. 9.33 (a), (b) and (c) respectively.

As the characteristic impedance for both the sections i.e. prototype section and m Derived High Pass Filter section, the variation of Z_{0} in m-derived section is similar to that in the prototype filter section.

The attenuation constant α in the attenuation band is given by,

The phase shift β in the pass band is given by
