A method of driving the effects caused by finite input impedance and nonzero output impedance of functional building blocks into a frequency shift of transfer characteristics is proposed. The method is quite simple and systematic. The input and output impedances can have arbitrary values under a simple condition which meets the monolithic integration of circuits. The effects of non ideal input and output impedances are converted to a change of integrator gain leading to a simple frequency shift of circuits. The frequency shift can easily be adjusted by conventional methods. A typical example shows a remarkable effect of the method.
