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: In this paper, a resistorless realization of high order voltage mode wave active filter based on differential voltage current controlled conveyor transconductance amplifier (DVCCCTA) is presented. The wave method is used for simulating reflected and incident wave for basic building block i.e. series inductor and configuring it for other passive element realization by making appropriate connection. The proposed structure uses grounded capacitors and possesses electronic tunability of cutoff frequency. The proposed approach is verified for a 4 th order low pass filter through SPICE simulation using 0.25 μm TSMC CMOS technology parameters. Keywords Differential voltage current controlled conveyor transconductance amplifier, wave Active Filter.

    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.

    ABSTRACT: The paper presents a new linearized, of high performance, fully differential transconductor, based on class AB second generation current conveyor (CCII) in CMOS technology. The proposed circuit is composed by two positive CCII cells connected in series and a common mode feedback loop. Unlike other CMOS circuits on the basis of CCII reported in the literature, the proposed transconductor cell allows to obtain a higher transconductance value, an improved linearity and operates at high frequency for a 3.3 V supply voltage. As an application, the new transconductor cell in CMOS technology is used for designing a 4th order differential $\hbox {G}_\mathrm{m}$ G m -C low-pass filters in different approximations (Butterworth and Chebyshev) operating up to 300 MHz cut-off frequency. The simulations performed in 130 nm CMOS process confirm the theoretical results.
