Universal Current-Mode Active-C Filter Employing Minimum Number of Passive Elements
- 183 Downloads
A universal current-mode active-C filter simultaneously realizing low-pass, band-pass and high-pass responses is proposed. The filter can also realize notch and all-pass responses with interconnection of relevant output currents. The presented filter employs four second-generation current controlled conveyors (CCCIIs) as active elements and only two capacitors as passive elements. The proposed active-C filter can be tuned electronically, and has low element sensitivities.
