A novel negative impedance converter (NIC) is proposed. This configuration is based on unity gain cells (a cascade of current and voltage followers with unity gains). The proposed circuit has wide band impedance scaling property, and it is suitable for practical implementation of realizing high-negative-valued passive components.
