Novel floating FDNR, inductor and capacitor simulator using CBTA
In this study novel floating frequency dependent negative resistor (FDNR), floating inductor (FI), floating capacitor and floating resistor simulator circuit employing two CBTAs and three passive components is proposed. The presented circuit can realize floating FDNR, inductor, capacitor or resistor depending on the passive component selection. Since the passive elements are all grounded, this circuit is suitable for fully integrated circuit design. The circuit does not require any component matching conditions, and it has a good sensitivity performance with respect to tracking errors. Moreover, the proposed FDNR, inductance, capacitor and resistor simulator can be tuned electronically by changing the biasing current of the CBTA or can be controlled through the grounded resistor or capacitor. The proposed floating FDNR simulator circuit is demonstrated by using a PSPICE simulation for 0.25 µm TSMC CMOS technology. © 2011 IEEE.
