In this paper, a new voltage-mode (VM) full-wave rectifier circuit employing two plus-type differential voltage-current conveyors, two grounded resistors, and two diodes is proposed. The proposed full-wave rectifier enjoys high input impedance and low output impedance; accordingly, it is suitable for direct cascading with other VM circuits without requiring additional buffers. It employs only two grounded resistors which are advantageous for integrated circuit implementations. However, it needs a single resistor-matching condition. It is simulated using SPICE program to verify the theoretical analysis.
