Abstract

In this paper a novel current conveyor with high functionality is proposed. The current conveyor utilizes a four quadrant current multiplier which can be used as a programmable gain amplifier in addition to current multiplication, which enables the device to function in both linear and non-linear regions. The correlation of the ports was optimized so that all of them would perform as input and output ports that are suitable for programmable applications. The current conveyor was implemented in 0.18µm CMOS process with a ±0.9v voltage supply. The results were obtained by Hspice and with a high detailed transistor library.
