ABSTRACT A circuit which can function both as quadrature oscillator and as a universal biquad filter (low-pass, high-pass, band-pass, band-reject and all-pass functions) is introduced in this paper. Working as quadrature oscillator, the oscillation condition and oscillation frequency can be adjusted independently with the input bias currents. Functioning as a universal biquad filter, the quality factor and natural frequency can be tuned orthogonally via the input bias currents. The proposed circuit can work as either a quadrature oscillator or a universal biquad filter without changing circuit topology. The proposed circuit description is very simple, consisting of merely 2 current controlled current conveyor transconductance amplifiers (CCCCTAs) and 2 grounded capacitors. Without any external resistors and using only grounded elements, this circuit is thus suitable for IC architecture. The PSPICE simulation results are depicted, and the given results agree well with the theoretical anticipation. The maximum power consumption is approximately 3.78 mW at plusmn1.5 V power supplies.

    ABSTRACT: This article presents a novel current-mode universal biquadratic network providing both standard transfer functions. The principal element of proposed network is CC-CCTAs. The feature of this network is that the pole frequency quality factor can be orthogonally adjusted via input bias currents. Besides performing as a universal filter, with an appropriate condition, the proposed network can function as a quadrature oscillator without changing its circuit topology. The oscillation frequency and oscillation condition can be independently controlled via input bias currents. The PSPICE simulation results are depicted. The given results agree well with the theoretical anticipation, where the maximum power consumption is 6.65mW at ±1.5V supply voltages. In addition, the circuit description is very simple, consisting of merely 3 CC-CCTAs and 2 grounded capacitors. Without any external resistors and using only grounded elements, the proposed circuit is very easy to further develop into an IC form for operating in battery-powered portable wireless communication system equipment.

    ABSTRACT: The paper presents novel current-mode (CM) quadrature oscillators (QOs) created using the recently proposed active building block (ABB), namely the current controlled current differencing transconductance amplifier (CCCDTA). Two circuits have been proposed and both of them employ minimum components, namely one multiple output CCCDTA (MO-CCCDTA) and two grounded capacitors. One of the proposed circuits is suitable to be used as a very low frequency oscillator (VLFO) and the other circuit provides non-interactive CO and FO control and could be used as a variable frequency oscillator (VFO). Both the circuits provide explicit quadrature current outputs. Non-ideal analysis, sensitivity study are provided and PSPICE simulations have been included which verify the workability of the circuit.

    ABSTRACT: This article presents a novel circuit, which can function both a high-output impedance current-mode universal biquad filter and quadrature sinusoidal oscillator for the same topology. The features of the proposed circuit as a universal filter are that the pole frequency and the quality factor can be adjusted independently controlled via input bias current. Besides performing as a universal filter, with an appropriate condition, the proposed circuit can function as a quadrature oscillator without changing its circuit topology. The oscillation frequency and oscillation condition can be independently controlled via input bias currents. In addition, since the proposed circuit comprises only active elements, which are 3 CCCCTAs and 2 operational amplifiers (OAs), it is very suitable to further develop into an integrated circuit. The PSPICE simulation results are depicted.
