Abstract: This paper proposes a simple technique to increase the time constant of a log-domain filter. By using the proposed technique, the capacitor value can be reduced considerably; hence, overall area of the circuit can be reduced. A second-order log-domain low-pass filter (LPF) is implemented in UMC 65-nm complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) technology to validate the proposed technique. It occupies an area as low as 0.005 mm2 and operates with a 0.5-V supply. For a cutoff frequency of 100 Hz, the filter consumes a power of 4 nW. By adjusting the bias current, the cutoff frequency can be linearly tuned from 10 to 500 Hz. The filter has the figure of merit (FoM) of 0.68 10?13 J, which is on par with many designs listed in the literature. The filter uses the lowest capacitance/pole (0.92 pF) among the similar designs given in the literature, which shows that the present design is area efficient. 2019 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
