A gm-C bandpass biquad filter featuring two decades of centre frequency tuning capability and a wide range of quality factor tunability is presented. It uses a new linear operational transconductance amplifier (OTA) based on two crosscoupled class-AB pseudo-differential pairs, which exhibits a wide transconductance adjustability range with low power consumption. The filter has been fabricated in a standard 0.8 μm CMOS process. Experimental results show a frequency tuning range from 300 kHz to 32 MHz and a maximum quality factor of 501. The filter is operated at 2 V supply voltage with a power consumption ranging from 1.18 to 1.8 mW.
