This paper presents a scheme to accurately tune the quality factor of second-order LC bandpass filters. The information of the magnitude response at the center and one of the cutoff frequencies is used to tune both the amplitude and the quality factor of the filter using two independent yet interacting loops. Furthermore, the synergic interaction between the loops makes the proposed scheme stable and insensitive to the mismatch between the input amplitudes. A chip prototype was implemented in a 0.35-mum CMOS process and consumes 4.3 mA from a single 1.3-V supply. Measurement results show that at 1.97 GHz the quality factor is tunable from 60 to 220 while the amplitude is tunable between -15 and 0 dBm with worst case quality factor and amplitude tuning accuracies of 10% and 7%, respectively
