—This paper presents a realization of Gm-C floating capacitance multiplier. It employs MOS transistors as transconductors and only one grounded capacitor. The circuit offers the attractive features of simple configuration, electronically tunable capacitance multiplication factor, low sensitivities to variation of active and passive elements and suitability for integrated circuit implementation. The parasitic effects of the transconductors on the proposed floating capacitance multiplier are investigated. The performance of the proposed circuit is demonstrated on second-order band-pass filter. The PSPICE simulations using TSMC 0.18 µm CMOS process parameter are also given to confirm the theoretical analysis.
