In this paper, a novel fully differential second-generation current conveyor (FDCCII) is presented. The proposed block is useful in mixed-mode applications where fully differential signal processing is required. Furthermore, the FDCCII can be used to realize MOSFET-C filters. The circuit has a bandwidth of about 10 MHz under heavy capacitive loads and can(More)
This paper proposes a modification for the symbolic synthesis method of analog circuits using admittance matrix expansion. The modification involves a generalization of the synthesis approach to employ mirror elements (voltage mirrors and current mirrors) in the admittance matrix expansion and ideal description of active elements, rather than using only(More)
Sinusoidal oscillators are known to be realized using dynamical systems of second-order or higher. Here we derive the Barhkausen condition for a linear noninteger-order (fractional-order) dynamical system to oscillate. We show that the oscillation condition and oscillation frequency of some famous integer-order sinusoidal oscillators can be obtained as(More)
Traditional continuous-time filters are of integer order. However, using fractional calculus, filters may also be represented by the more general fractional-order differential equations in which case integer-order filters are only a tight subset of fractional-order filters. In this work, we show that low-pass, high-pass, band-pass, and all-pass filters can(More)
Design and simulation of a digitally controlled CMOS fully differential current conveyor (DCFDCC) is presented. A novel current division network (CDN) is used to provide the digital control of the current gain between terminals X and Z of this DCFDCC. The proposed DCFDCC operates under low supply voltage of /spl plusmn/1.5 V. The realization of the DCFDCC(More)
A wide-range differential difference operational floating amplifier (DDOFA) is introduced. The DDOFA is a new block useful for continuous-time analog signal processing. The DDOFA is realized using a differential difference transconductor with large signal handling capability and a single input differential output current op-amp. The DDOFA forces two(More)
This paper presents a new CMOS current feedback operational amplifier (CFOA) with rail to rail swing capability at all terminals. The circuit operates as a class AB for lower power consumption. Besides operating at low supply voltages of 1.5 V, the proposed CFOA has a standby current of 200 A. The proposed CFOA circuit is thus a versatile building block for(More)

This paper presents novel CMOS realizations of the operational floating conveyor (OFC) based on novel block diagrams. It also introduces novel applications based on one of the proposed OFC realizations. The proposed OFC realization provides a wide bandwidth and a large gain bandwidth product. Hence, it exhibits wide bandwidth at higher gains. All the(More)
