Out of various methods of floating inductance simulation known so far GIC-based methods of floating inductance simulation appear to be more suitable from the point of view of microelectronic application. However, a drawback of such configurations is their noncanonic nature due to the requirement of two GICs and hence two capacitors for simulating a first order impedance. This paper reports new type of FI circuits which require only one GIC and thus employ only one capacitor together with a reduced number of resistors, while retaining the merits of the usual GIC-approach.
