A novel voltage-tunable linear 3-input CMOS Operational Transconductance Amplifier (OTA) suitable for onchip integration of advanced monolithic systems is proposed. When a 3-input OTA is needed, a conventional 3-input OTA uses two 2-input OTA's and either grounds one of the 4 input terminals or ties two terminals. This paper presents a method to reduce the number of MOS transistors and to save chip area by designing a 3-input OTA directly. A CMOS pair technique is introduced s a solution to minimize a matching problem for control voltage sources. Simulation results show that the active chip area of the proposed 3-input OTA is reduced by 25% compared to that of a conventional one. The proposed 3-input OTA is applied to a realization of an OTA-C filter to verify the effectiveness.
