In this article, a new complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) high-performance fully differential second-generation current conveyor (FDCCII) implementation is proposed. The presented FDCCII provides high-output impedance at terminals Z+ and Z-, good linearity and excellent output-input current gain accuracy. Also, the proposed FDCCII circuit operates at a supply voltage of +/- 1.3 V. The applications of the FDCCII to realise voltage-mode multifunction filters are given. Simulations are performed using TSMC CMOS 0.35-mu m technology to verify theoretical results.
