A voltage-mode (VM) multifunction configuration for the realization of conventional and inverse active filters (IAF) using two current differencing buffered amplifiers and six passive elements is presented. The proposed structure can realize all the basic filters from the same circuit topology by appropriate choice of the branch impedances.
