This paper proposes to study the design of a novel high-Q fully integrated switched capacitor bandpass filter. This circuit, implemented in CMOS technology, allows a tunable high selectivity over a broad frequency band. The proposed architecture is intended to replace passive surface acoustic wave (SAW) filters in low-cost wireless radio-communication applications. To show the feasibility of the proposed filter a prototype has been fabricated and tested. Measurements show quality factors up to 300, and a tunable center frequency range of 290 MHz [240 - 530 MHz] with a bandwidth tuning.
