In this paper novel lossless and lossy grounded parallel inductance simulators are reported. All grounded inductor simulator circuits employing only a single DXCCII and three passive components are proposed. The proposed topologies realized all grounded parallel inductance variations. To demonstrate the performance of the presented DXCCII based parallel inductance simulators, we used one of the circuits to construct a third order high-pass filter, a voltage-mode band-pass filter and LC oscillator. Simulation results are given to confirm the theoretical analysis. The proposed DXCCII and its applications are simulated using CMOS 0.35 mu m technology. (C) 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
