DV-EXCCCII Based Resistor-Less Current-Mode Universal Biquadratic Filter
Keywords:biquad filter, DV-EXCCCII, electronically tunable, analog building block, current-mode filter
This study aims to present a new resistor-less current-mode multi-input single-output universal filter. The current-mode’s design approach is used to obtain the proposed circuit. This circuit employs a single differential voltage extra-X current controlled current conveyor (DV-EXCCCII) and two grounded capacitors. This multifunction filter circuit offers low-pass, high-pass, all-pass, band-pass, and band-reject filters at a single output terminal without passive component matching constraints. The same circuit topology can obtain all second-order filter functions with different input conditions. The proposed circuit design is electronically adjustable with the bias current of DV-EXCCCII. Because of its high output impedance, this arrangement is suitable for cascading other current-mode circuits. The proposed circuit is simulated by Cadence Spectre with 0.18 µm UMC CMOS technology process parameters at ± 0.9 V supply voltages. The simulation results agree well with the theoretical concept of the proposed circuit.
