A novel circuit configuration for the realization of low power single-input three-output (SITO) current mode (CM) filters employing only MOS transistors are presented. The proposed circuit can realize low-pass (LP), band-pass (BP) and high-pass (HP) filter functions simultaneously at three high impedance outputs without changing configuration. Despite the other previously reported works, the proposed circuit is free from resistors and passive capacitors. Instead of passive capacitors; the gate-source capacitor of MOS transistor is used making the proposed circuit ideally suitable for integration. Compared to other works, the proposed filter has also the lowest number of transistors and lowest power consumption. The proposed circuit exhibits low-input and high-output impedances, which is highly desirable for cascading in CM signal processing. Moreover, it is center frequency can be electronically adjusted using a control current without a significant effect on quality factor (Q) granting it the highly desirable capability of electronic tunability. Transfer functions of the LP, BP and HP outputs are derived and the performance of the proposed circuit is proved through pre layout and post layout simulations at supply voltage of 1.8 V and using 0.18 μm CMOS process parameters. The power consumption and the required chip area are only 0.5 mW and 77.4 μm × 70.2 μm, respectively.
