Performance comparison of high-order IFLF and LF linear phase lowpass OTA-C filters with and without gain boost
Design and performance comparison of high-order operational transconductance amplifier and capacitor (OTA-C) filters using leapfrog (LF) and inverse-follow-the-leader-feedback (IFLF) structures are investigated. The filters are designed for a 125 MHz seventh-order equiripple group delay lowpass characteristic with and without gain boost and simulated in 0.25 μm 2-V CMOS. A fully differential highly linear OTA with cross-coupled input pairs and regulated cascode output is used for the simulation. Simulated results show that while the IFLF OTA-C filter can achieve a higher gain boost, the LF OTA-C filter has better other performances.

Explicit design formulas for current-mode leap-frog OTA-C filters and 300 MHz CMOS seventh-order linear phase filter Sun, Y.; Zhu, X.; Moritz, J. (2010)The leap-frog (LF) configuration is an important structure in analogue filter design. Voltage-mode LF OTA-C filters have recently been studied in the literature; however, general explicit formulas do not exist for current-mode ...
Sun, Y.; Fidler, K. (1998)This paper presents general fully balanced structures of continuous-time OTA-C filters based on multiple loop feedback (MLF) configurations. Both simple all pole and complex arbitrary zero fully balanced implementations ...
High Frequency CMOS Integrated Filters for Computer Hard Disk Drive and Wireless Communication Systems Zhu, X. (2008-06-05)Operational transconductance amplifier and capacitor (OTA-C) filters have outstood among different types of filter due to high frequency and low power capabilities in the main stream digital CMOS technology. They have ...
