This paper proposes a synthesis method of all low-voltage CMOS instantaneous-companding log domain integrators. The method is based on the exhaustive search of all low-voltage CMOS instantaneous-companding log domain integrators. All the integrators are derived from a general block diagram. A function of each block can be realized by any of a family of circuits and elemental circuits chosen from such families are combined to build an integrator. It is clarified that each family contains a few circuit topologies. All topologies of integrators including new ones are obtained from combinational procedure. Comparing characteristics of all generated integrators, ones satisfying required performances are found out.
