ABSTRACT This article presents a basic current-mode building block for analog signal processing, namely current conveyor transconductance amplifier (CCTA) using the commercially available ICs. The performances are examined through PSPICE simulations and experiment, displaying usabilities of the new active element. The description includes some examples as a voltage-mode universal biquad filter, a grounded inductance, a current-mode multiplier and oscillator. They occupy only a single CCTA.

    ABSTRACT: A modified conception of adjustable current conveyor transconductance amplifier (CCTA) and its inter-esting application in simple quadrature oscillator expand-able for direct frequency modulation purposes, employing only four grounded passive elements is presented in this paper. It is quite simple solution for modern communica-tion subsystem components. An electronic adjusting of the oscillation frequency is easily possible and control of condition of the oscillation is realized via only one grounded resistor. The characteristic equation, condition of oscillation and major parasitic influences of real active part are discussed. The verification includes PSpice simulation and measurement with the CCTA block formed by commercially available active elements.

    ABSTRACT: This paper presents a multifunction voltage mode filter and a universal current mode filter based on recently proposed active building block namely differential voltage current conveyor transconductance amplifier (DVCCTA). Both the circuits employ single DVCCTA, two capacitors and single resistor. The filter enjoys low sensitivity performance and low component spread; and exhibits electronic tunability of Alter parameters via bias currents of DVCCTA. SPICE simulation using 0.25 μm TSMC CMOS technology parameters are included to show the workability of the proposed circuits.

    ABSTRACT: A novel single input five output voltage mode universal filter based on differential difference current conveyor transconductance amplifier (DDCCTA) is presented. It employs grounded passive components namely two capacitors and a resistor. The proposed filter offers the following advantageous features: high input impedance-a desirable property of voltage mode filters; simultaneous availability of low pass, band pass, high pass, notch, and all pass; no matching constraint; low sensitivity performance and use of grounded capacitors suitable for integration. The effect of DDCCTA non-idealities on filter behaviour has also been addressed. The functionality of the design is verified through SPICE simulations using 0.25 μm TSMC CMOS technology.
