N-path filters exploiting switched-series-R-C networks can realize high-Q blocking-tolerant band-pass filters. Moreover, their center frequency is flexibly programmable by a digital clock. Unfortunately, the time variant nature of these circuits also results in unwanted signal folding. This paper proves analytically that folding can be reduced and band pass(More)
Due to the absence of internal nodes, inverter-based Gm-C filters [1,2] allow achieving bandwidths beyond what is possible with opamp-RC techniques. The inverter’s class-AB behavior, together with the high transconductance per quiescent current, results in a high dynamic range per power when optimally biased [3]. The major disadvantage of traditional(More)
This paper describes a combination of a Weaver mixer and an N-path filter for a superheterodyne receiver with a reconfigurable frequency plan. It uses an N-path topology driven with two different frequencies, effectively realizing a frequency shift together with band-pass filtering. To reduce transfers via harmonics other than the fundamental, a harmonic(More)
