A CMOS fourth-order linear phase low-pass filter used for high speed wireless/wireline system is realized in 0.18-m CMOS process. The high speed filter is designed based on operational transconductance amplifier (OTA) biquad sections. As well known, large transconductance is required for high speed applications, and thu. The conventional source degeneration topology, which operates wit. The trade-off of linearity and transconductance, is not suitable. In this paper. The proposed OTA us. The negative current feedback topology to maintain linearity for high speed application. By usin. The proposed OTA as a building block, a 4-th order low-pass filter is realized. Fabricating in 0.18-m CMOS technology. The -3dB filter frequency response at 250MHz is measured. The measured HD3 performance is about -40dB an. The group delay variation is less than 5ns at the filter -3dB cutoff frequency.
