A second-order gm-C filter based on the Floating-Gate MOS (FGMOS) technique is presented. It uses a new fully differential transconductor and works at 2 V of voltage supply with a full differential input linear range and a THD below 1%. Programming and tuning are performed by means of a single voltage signal. The transconductor incorporates a novel Common-Mode Feedback Circuit (CMFB) based also on FGMOS transistors.
