In this chapter current-mode instrumentation amplifiers (CMIAs) implemented with different current-mode building blocks are discussed. Various structures are classified into four categories based on their input and output signals, i.e. current input current output (I-I) or pure CMIA, current input voltage output (I-V) or trans-impedance CMIA, voltage input current output (V-I) or trans-admittance CMIA and voltage input and voltage output (V-V) CMIA. Each section starts with a brief introduction on the used active building block and continues with the detailed description of the CMIA topology.
