Your last statement is wrong. You have the counter-example. To be more specific: the BLT maps the left-half complex plane (excluding the imaginary line) into the unit circle. The pole of the continuous time differntiator at infinity gets mapped onto the Nyquist frequency. For analog designs, the pole at infinity is usually countered by some kind of (possibly system inherent) lowpass. Regards, Andor
