## Peaking and stop-band filter

In the same way, a peaking filter is obtained from a shelving filter by rotating the pole and the zero, and by providing a conjugate pole and zero, as shown in Figure 8.16. If the desired center frequency is , and the radii of the pole and zero (as for the shelving filter) are and , then we place the the upper pole and zero at

As a special case, placing the zero on the unit circle gives a stop-band filter; in this case the gain at the center frequency is zero. This is analogous to the one-pole, one-zero high-pass filter above.
