A simple CMOS second generation class AB Current conveyer topology based on differential pair with modified output stage is presented. The circuit has excellent characteristics and is suitable for low supply voltage operations; the result is verified through SPICE simulation on BISIM3 Level 3 parameters. Keywords: Current Conveyer, Current Mirrors, Differential Pair, Parasitic Impedance I. INTRODUCTION Development of VLSI technology, together with the request of a large number of elements on a single chip, has led to an improved interest in analog circuit design, especially for integrated circuits [1-4]. Recent trend towards miniaturized circuits has given a strong and decisive boost towards the design of low voltage low power analog integrated circuits, which are widely utilized in portable system applications. The more gates integrated, the more important it is to reduce the power consumption. Therefore a low supply voltage is required to decrease the power consumption of the digital portion of the chip enabling more functions to be integrated. Various Current conveyer topologies for low supply voltages have been proposed. These topologies require complicated input stages to guarantee a rail to rail input common mode operation while maintaining a constant transconductance, this is important to allow 68

The use of compensating capacitors results in a finite gainbandwidth product for the operational amplifiers; hence the bandwidth is not utilizedeffectively for higher gain values. Recently, current mode circuits have been receivingsignificant attention in analog signal processing. This has led to implement new circuit designstrategies for low cost CMOS technology [2-8]. The Current mode circuits are able toovercome the limitation of a constant gain-bandwidth product and the trade off betweenspeed and bandwidth, so that performance is improved in terms of slew rate and bandwidth.The current conveyer introduced by Sedra and Smith in 1968, is a basic current mode circuitthat can be implemented in analog circuit design which had characteristics similar tooperational amplifier. The first block was identified as “first generation current conveyers” orCCI, later its evolved topology was called “second generation current conveyers” or CCII in1970 [2, 5-8, 12-15]. Although CMOS realizations of the CCII are available, they usuallyoperate in a class A mode with a limited voltage swing capability [1-6]. In this paper we propose a high performance improved class AB CCII topology basedon differential pair with modified output stage. The proposed circuit has been simulated usingBISIM3 Level 3 parameters.II. CURRENT CONVEYER CCIIs are useful and flexible current-mode building blocks and many authors havedemonstrated their versatility in CMOS analog circuit design. An ideal CCII is a three-terminal device with two input nodes (X; Y) and an output node (Z). Fig 1a shows blockrepresentation of CCII. The resistance at the Y node is ideally infinite, while that at node X islow. The voltage in X is a replica of that applied at Y and the current at Z is equal to thatflowing at X. The well-known CCII behavior is summarized in the matrix form shown in Fig1b, where the signs + and - are used for positive (CCII+) and negative (CCII-) conveyors,respectively.

The output current Iz thus depends only onthe input current at terminal X, this current may be injected directly at X, or it may be produced by thecopy of the input voltage Vy from terminal Y acting across the impedance connected at X. In a classCCII conveyor input Y draws no current, whereas for the older CCI formulation the impedanceconnected at X is also reflected at Y. In contrast, a current convertor is represented completely by therelationship Iz = ±Ix; Vy is effectively shorted out by being grounded. Many different and usefulcircuit functions can be realized by different interconnections of one or more current conveyors;hence the interest in an effective circuit implementation [1-3, 5-8]. Earlier implementation of currentconveyors, however, has suffered from an excessive number of operational amplifiers, tightlymatched resistances and very low bandwidths. More recently, operational transconductance amplifiers(OTAs) have been employed, or an equivalent operational amplifier synthesis, but again with poorbandwidth and output capability. Since a current conveyor is intended as a controlled current outputso, it must be capable of driving a short-circuit or very low load resistances, in contrast to voltageamplifier behavior, and it also provides wide bandwidth and low-power characteristics.III. PROPOSED CURRENT CONVEYER The use of differential pair in the implementation of Current Conveyer II can be extended alsoto the basic topologies, Fig 2a shows a class AB CCII, here IBias1 and IBias2 have to be equal, in thiscircuit, current mirrors have been doubled, this circuit can be employed as a first stage, a differentialpair to give class AB CCII topology based on differential pair with modified output stage shown infig 2b.
