Abstract

In this paper we discuss circuits comprised of multiple differential pairs driven in parallel. We show that high linearity and linear with bias current tunability are intrinsic properties of any equidistant-offset multi-pair circuit. We argue that these two properties could potentially allow us to implement designs of analog filters, multipliers and other circuits that are (in first-order) technology independent. Simulations results are provided in support of presented simple intuitive explanation.
