Abstract

Transconductance-C (g m -C) filters are suitable solutions to perform a variety of signal processing tasks. Operational Transconductance Amplifiers (OTAs) are main components of g m -C filters, and variable transconductance gain (g m ) has a detrimental effect on the performance of g m -C filters. One principal factor to cause such variations of the transconductance (g m ) values is the change in environment temperature. In this thesis, a new negative feedback technique is applied to stabilize changes in the transconductance of CMOS OTA with temperature variation over the industrial temperature range of -30{493}C to +85{493}C. Stabilized transconductance will bring stability in the frequency and quality factor of the filters built from these OTAs. To validate this notion, several types of second-order g m -C filters have been built with the temperature stabilized OTAs. Furthermore, a second-order g m -C band-pass filter with the negative feedback control system has been implemented using TSMC 0.18 om CMOS technology, and fabricated through the facilities of Canadian Microelectronics Corporation (CMC). The experimental results show good agreement with the theoretical expectation.
