In this paper, we discuss an IF image rejection system with variable bandwidth and center frequency. The system is consists of a pair of frequency mixers multiplied by the complex sinusoid and a complex analog filter. By employing the complex leapfrog structure using OTA-C configuration and the frequency transformation from the normalized LPF, the proposed system is capable of variable bandwidth and center frequency characteristics. SPICE simulations result more than 43 [dB] image rejection is achieved for 6 [kHz] and 12 [kHz] bandwidths at 50 [kHz] IF.
