Abstract

This paper proposes a linear voltage-to-cur-rent converter with current reuse technique to reduce circuit power consumption without deteriorating its linearity and bandwidth. The proposed circuit is designed using 0.18 μm CMOS process parameters from TSMC. Simulation results show that the total harmonic distortion (THD) of the proposed circuit with a 2.5-V input amplitude is less than 1% for input frequency up to 200 MHz under a 1.8-V supply voltage. The total current consumption is 10.8 mA.
