Design of high-frequency Gm-C wavelet filters
A high-frequency wavelet filter which employs Gm-C blocks based on leap-frog (LF) multiple-loop feedback (MLF) structure is presented. The proposed method is well suitable for high-quality high-frequency operation since the Gm-C based filter can achieve high frequency, whilst LF MLF configuration has the characteristics of lower magnitude sensitivity and capability of realizing arbitrary rational functions. The Marr wavelet is selected as an example in this paper, and the design for a 100 MHz frequency operation is elaborated. The wavelet filter is simulated using TSMC 1.8 V 0.18 mum CMOS technology. Simulation results indicate that the proposed method is feasible for high frequency operation with relatively low power consumption.
