A new MOS linear operational transconductance amplifier (OTA) for the up-to-4 MHz range OTA-C filters is proposed. The proposed OTA is designed using a new linearizing technique based on bias-current modulation, to compensate nonlinearities in the transfer characteristic of the conventional current-source-biased source-coupled pair. The design and SPICE simulation are presented in detail, assuming the implementation by the typical p-well CMOS process. The simulation of a 3.58 MHz OTA-C band-pass filter built with the proposed OTAs showed close agreement with the desired performance.
