A single input and five outputs voltage mode universal biquadratic filter using two four terminal floating nullor (FTFNs), two operational transconductance amplifiers (OTAs), four resistors and two grounded capacitors is presented. The circuit is capable of realizing the entire standard filters viz-low pass, high pass, band pass notch and all pass simultaneously. The circuit offers the advantageous feature of having high input impedance and the use of grounded capacitors makes the circuit suitable for cascading of higher order filter. The filter performance parameter resonance frequency ω0 and quality factor Q can be control orthogonally.

The design of filters circuits employing active devices such as Four Terminal Floating Nullor (FTFNs) and operational transconductance amplifiers (OTAs) have been reported in the literature [1-4]. The FTFN is a versatile active circuit-building block, as it offers some potential advantages over conventional operational amplifiers (OA) and second-generation current conveyors (CCIIs). Also OTA is a differential voltage controlled current source. It offers highly linear electronic tenability and a wide tunable range of its transconductance gain gm. The transconductance gain is adjustable over several decades through its bias current. A review of the literature reveals that not much attention has been paid towards the development of such circuits, which realize the entire standard filter Received Date: 28.05.2009 Accepted Date: 05.11.2009

simultaneously, and offers the advantage of high input impedance based on FTFNs and OTAs. Also the filters with high input imedance make the circuit suitable for cascading some cells to implements higher order filter circuits. Thus there has been growing interest to develop such analog filter circuits which offers high input impedance and realize all the standard filters simultaneously i.e. low pass, high pass, band pass, notch and all pass. Based on FTFNS and OTAs. As a sequel, a number of voltage mode filter circuits using FTFNs and OTAs have been reported in the literature [110]. One of the reported circuit [6] based on two FTFNs and five passive components has the limited scope of applicability as it can be configured to implement only one filtering function depending on the selection of passive components. Further the proposed circuit [7] of voltage mode universal biquadratic filter with single input and

The positive FTFN can be characterized by the port relations with vx = vy. one OTA two resistors and two capacitors and realize three filtering functions simultaneously.
