In this paper a novel current-mode square-root circuit with reduced short-channel effect is proposed. It's suitable for standart CMOS fabrication and analog systems. The proposed circuit which has been simulated with SPICE simulator in 0.35 mu m CMOS technology, decreases the output current errors of the square-root circuit especially employing short-channel MOS transistors.
