In this paper, five new lossless grounded inductance simulators are presented. All proposed inductor simulator circuits employ with only a single Fully Differential Second-Generation Current Conveyor (FDCCII), two resistors and a capacitor are proposed. Moreover, all passive components are grounded therefore the proposed inductance simulator circuits offer ease of integration and tuning advantages with low sensitivities. To demonstrate the performance of the proposed FDCCII-based inductance simulators, we use one of the circuits to construct a current-mode multifunction filter. The proposed inductance simulator circuits and current-mode multifunction filter are simulated with SPICE program. Simulation results are given to verify the theoretical analysis.
