ISCAS'99. Proceedings of the 1999 IEEE International Symposium on Circuits and Systems VLSI (Cat. No.99CH36349)  
A general high-Q biquad lter architecture capable of operating in the GHz range is proposed and analyzed.  ...  This lter, which is usable in bandpass and lowpass applications, utilizes two e ective Q-enhancement techniques to circumvent the low-Q characteristics inherent in the circuit.  ...  In communication applications, gigahertz-band lters with high quality factor Q are demanded, but are di cult to produce in standard digital CMOS process.  ...
