The MAX7409 is a digital domain, switched capacitor filter,
not an analog filter.  As such it is subject to aliasing
problems as are all sampled data systems.

On the plus side, it is simple and, being clocked, highly
stable.  Passband frequency and phase responses should be
true Bessel function so group delay distortion should not be
a problem.

Also, Maxim are a great company to deal with, you should
have little trouble sampling a couple of these.

I recently searched for a 1-10 Hz cutoff filter to clean up
the output of a hydraulic pressure transducer in a hydraulic
servo system and came very close to using this part, but
finally settled on a two section R-C low pass filter with
good results.
