1.5-V CMOS Current Multiplier/Divider

Jetsdaporn Satansup, Worapong Tangsrirat


A circuit technique for designing a compact low-voltage current-mode multiplier/divider circuit in CMOS technology is presented.  It is based on the use of a compact current quadratic cell able to operate at low supply voltage.  The proposed circuit is designed and simulated for implementing in TSMC 0.25-m CMOS technology with a single supply voltage of 1.5 V.  Simulation results using PSPICE, accurately agreement with theoretical ones, have been provided, and also demonstrate a maximum linearity error of 1.5%, a THD less than 2% at 100 MHz, a total power consumption of 508 W, and -3dB small-signal frequency of about 245 MHz.
