ABSTRACT A new electronically fine-tunable multi-input-single-output (MISO) universal filter is proposed. The filter circuit compared with active-device-based counterparts is very simple and fully integrable. Moreover, a few number of active transistors provide a reduction in power consumption, and the filter enjoys advantages such as no component matching and small size area. Postlayout simulation results using parameters of AMS CMOS 0.35-μm process technology show good agreement with theoretical expectations.

    ABSTRACT: In this study, a three-input single-output voltage-mode biquadratic filter employing voltage differencing differential input buffered amplifier (VD-DIBA) is presented. The proposed filter uses two VD-DIBAs and two grounded capacitors without any external resistors, which is well suited for integrated circuit implementation. The circuit provides five standard transfer functions, namely, low pass, high pass, band pass, notch and all pass filters with electronic control of quality factor and pole frequency. Each transfer function can be selected by suitably selecting input signals via digital method. The filter does not require inverting of the input voltage signal. Moreover, the circuit possesses high input and low output impedances and thus it enables simple voltage-mode cascading. The PSPICE simulation and also experimental results are included, verifying the workability of the proposed filter. The given results agree well with the theoretical anticipation.

    ABSTRACT: A universal voltage-mode filter configuration employing a voltage differencing inverting buffered amplifier (VDIBA), two capacitors and a resistor is proposed. The presented structure can realize all the five standard biquadratic filters: low-pass, high-pass, band-pass, band-reject and all-pass, without changing the circuit topology. The proposed filter circuit also provides the following advantageous features, not available simultaneously in any of the single active element/device based universal biquad realizing all the five filter responses known earlier so far: (i) independent electronic tuning of natural angular frequency (ω 0) and bandwidth (BW), (ii) no requirement of any element matching condition or inversion of input signal(s) (as needed in most of the earlier reported structures), and (iii) low active and passive sensitivities. Moreover, even the internal structure of the new building block is possibly the simplest among all recently introduced new building blocks. The workability of the proposed filter has been confirmed by SPICE simulations using 0.18 μm technology.
