A novel electronically tunable high input impedance voltage-mode multifunction filter with single inputs and three outputs employing two single-output-operational transconductance amplifiers, one differential difference current conveyor and two capacitors is proposed. The presented filter can be realized the highpass, bandpass and lowpass functions, simultaneously. The input of the filter exhibits high input impedance so that the synthesized filter can be cascaded without additional buffers. The circuit needs no any external resistors and employs two grounded capacitors, which is suitable for integrated circuit implementation.
