This paper deals with the proposal of a new topology for a gm-C continuous time filter which allows the adjustment and tuning of its characteristic parameters (ωO and Q) in an independent way (without cross-tuning), thereby extending the Q range of the filter for a particular ωO value. Additionally a comparison of three different Q-tuning algorithms is presented. It is shown that an LMS-based Q-control strategy allows to overcome the intrinsic dependence between the Q and ωO tuning loops. The combination of both the proposed filter topology and the selected control loop algorithms results in an enhanced transient performance as well as an improvement in terms of cross-detuning.
