The actual trend of Integrated Circuits (IC) are both to scale down the dimensions of the transistors and to incorporate in a single chip as many building blocks as possible. In the design of high-performance electronic circuits the use of analog filters is unavoidable. The advance of the Very-Large Scale Integration (VLSI) techniques demands for high-frequency and high-performance active filtering. In Telecommunication applications, for instance, active filters ranging from a few kiloHertz (kHz) up to several MegaHertz (MHz) are required. Some other communication systems like radio and video frequency receivers demand high-frequency and high-selectivity analog filters as well.
