Original Abstract

Nowadays the necessity of low-voltage operation and low-power consumption are essential demand for electronic devices, particularly for portable electronics. Therefore, this paper presents new ultra-low-voltage CMOS topology of differential difference current conveyor (DDCC) based on bulk-driven (BD) principle. Due to using the BD technique the proposed circuit is capable to work with low supply voltage of +-0.3 V and consumes about 18.6 uW with a wide input common-mode range. The proposed BD-DDCC is suitable for ultra-low-voltage low-power applications. As an example of application a voltage-mode multifunction biquadratic filter based on two BD-DDCCs and four grounded passive elements, also, a fourth-order band-pass filter are presented. All passive elements of both applications are grounded which is advantageous for monolithic integration, also the input voltage signals are applied directly to the high input impedance terminals which is desirable feature for voltage-mode operation. The simulations were preformed by Pspice using TSMC 0.18 um n-well CMOS technology to prove the functionality and attractive results of the proposed circuit.
