The switched-current (SI) circuit is a circuit technique which is able to realize analog sampled-data circuits with a standard CMOS technology. Among all the basic SI circuits, the memory cell circuit is the most primitive element. In this work, a practical SI memory cell which employs negative feedback circuitry and glitch reduction technique is first presented. Based on this basic cell, a universal SI integrator is then developed. General first and second order building blocks are

To verify the accuracy of the SI circuits, test filters including a first order low-pass filter, a second order Chebyshev low-pass filter, and a fifth order Chebyshev low-pass filters have been designed and verified with HSPICE. The simulation results of the frequency response characteristics show good agreement with the theoretical results.
