Analog inverter is one of the most useful building blocks in analog circuits. This paper proposes an analog inverter consisting of a p-channel MOS (PMOS) and an n-channel MOS (NMOS) inverter and presents an application to all-pass filter realizations. The proposed circuit has a wide dynamic range by combining PMOS and NMOS inverters. When the proposed analog inverter is applied to an all-pass filter, the circuit configuration becomes simpler and occupies less chip area and power consumption.
