The growing market of wireless communications is a significant reason that motivates the study of new low cost and highly integrated architectures. A novel tuning technique which improves the performances of an RF CMOS band pass filter based on simulated inductors is presented. Gain enhancement techniques are applied to reduce the inductor losses by using a novel negative resistance topology. The proposed method is sufficiently general to be applied to other active filters topologies based on active inductors as well and is intended to be used for CMOS multi-standard filters design.
