This paper presents the new OTA-C current-mode/ transimpedance second-order continuoustime filters based on passive R-L-C circuits using component substitution method. The resistor and inductor in these biquads are realized using OTA-C counterparts. The current through resistor/ inductor is used to implement useful current-mode transfer functions in addition to transimpedance filters. The current through resistor/ inductor is made available using a dual output OTA (DO-OTA) in place of single output OTA (SO-OTA). The proposed biquads are attractive due to their advantageous features like ease of design, good sensitivity and orthogonal tunability of pole-Q. The biquads have been simulated using practical OTAs as well as their behavioral macro-model and the results are given to verify the theoretical analysis.
