Electronically-Controlled Current-mode second order Sinusoidal Oscillators Using MO-OTAs and Grounded Capacitors
Five new electronically-controllable second order current-mode sinusoidal oscillators using three mul-ti-output operational transconductance amplifiers (MO-OTAs) and two grounded capacitors (GC) have been presented. Simulation results are included to confirm the theoretical analysis based upon CMOS OTAs implementable in 0.5 µm technology.
