Current Conveyor: A New Building Block


Department of Physics, Doranda College, Ranchi – 834 002, INDIA.


Sedra and Smith first introduced the current conveyor in 1968. It is an abstraction for a three-terminal analog electronic device. It is a form of electronic amplifier with unity gain. When configured with other circuit elements, real current conveyors can perform many analog signal processing functions, in a manner operational amplifiers do. This paper presents the basics of current conveyors with some of its applications in a very simple way.
