Abstract

A new second generation BiCMOS Controlled Current Conveyor (CCCII) is introduced in this paper. The main advantages of the proposed circuit are high bandwidth and tunable resistance with a wide range. Compared with the corresponding existing CCCII, the proposed CCCII offers the advantages of low power dissipation and simple circuit structure. Also, due to the absence of PNP transistors in the designed circuit, its performance is reasonable in terms of the maximum frequency of operation.
