In this paper, using a minimum number of passive components, i.e., new grounded and floating inductance simulators, grounded capacitance multipliers, and frequency-dependent negative resistors (FDNRs) based on one/two modified current-feedback operational amplifiers (MCFOAs), are proposed. The type of the simulators depends on the passive element selection used in the structure of the circuit without requiring critical active and passive component-matching conditions and/or cancellation constraints. In order to show the flexibility of the proposed MCFOA, a single-input three-output (SITO) voltage-mode (VM) filter, two three-input single-output (TISO) VM filters, and an SITO current-mode (CM) filter employing a single MCFOA are reported. The layout of the proposed MCFOA is also given. A number of simulations using the SPICE program and some experimental tests are performed to exhibit the performance of the introduced structures.
