A new method for the realisation of parallel connection of inductance, capacitance and resistance using only positive type second-generation current conveyors is presented. All circuits obtained using the proposed method exhibit equivalent input admittance functions. For these circuits no element matching conditions are imposed, the simulated immittance values can orthogonally be adjusted both for positive and negative values. The circuits employ only grounded passive components. The functionality of some of the circuits is preserved at relatively high frequencies, illustrated bp simulation, a property which cannot be expected from classical voltage mode op-amps realisations.
