- Low Voltage Squarer Using Floating Gate MOSFETs. Pandey, Rishikesh; Gupta, Maneesha // International Journal of Electronics, Circuits & Systems;2009, Vol. 3 Issue 1, p53
A new low-voltage floating gate MOSFET (FGMOS) based squarer using square law characteristic of the FGMOS is proposed in this paper. The major advantages of the squarer are simplicity, rail-to-rail input dynamic range, low total harmonic distortion, and low power consumption. The proposed...
- Motivating two-port network analysis through elementary and advanced examples. Elwakil, A. S. // International Journal of Electrical Engineering Education;Oct2010, Vol. 47 Issue 4, p404
We seek to motivate the use of two-port network circuit analysis techniques by proposing two examples: one is elementary, the other is advanced. In particular, we start by deriving the transmission matrices for small-signal equivalent models of the BJT and MOS transistors. We then proceed to the...
