This paper presents an electrical, fully integrated, high quality (Q) factor GmC bandpass filter (BPF) stage for a wireless 27 MHz direct conversion receiver for a bendable sensor system-in-foil (Briem et al., 2016). The core of the BPF with a Q factor of more than 200 is an operational transconductance amplifier (OTA) with a high linearity at an input range of up to 300 mVpp, diff. The OTA's signal-to-noise-and-distortion-ratio (SNDR) of more than 80 dB in the mentioned range is achieved by stabilizing its transconductance Gm with a respective feedback loop and a source degeneration resistors RDG.
The filter stage can be tuned and is tolerant to global and local process variations due to offset and common-mode feedback (CMFB) control circuits. The results are determined by periodic steady state (PSS) simulations at more than 200 global and local process variation parameter and temperature points and corner simulations. It is expected, that the parasitic elements of the layout have no significant influence on the filter behaviour. The current consumption of the whole filter stage is less than 600 µA.
