High -Frequency Tunable Grounded and Floating Incremental-Decremental Meminductor Emulators and Application

Garima Shukla, Pratik Kumar, Sajal K Paul


This paper proposes new design for realizing grounded and floating meminductor emulators built with two operational transconductance amplifiers (OTAs) and two second-generation current conveyors. The proposed grounded and floating emulators claim that the circuits are much simpler in design and can be utilized in incremental and decremental topologies. The proposed circuits' performance has been verified with Cadence Virtuoso Spectre using standard CMOS 180nm technology. Furthermore, the layout of the proposed circuits has been designed, and post-layout simulations have been performed. The non-ideal and Monte Carlo analyses have been carried out in detail. This paper also proposes the application of a meminductor as an Amplitude Modulator (AM). Moreover, the experimental results are presented to verify the theoretical and simulation analyses of proposed meminductor emulator circuits.
