A design approach for differential CMOS Active Inductor with a self-resonant frequency around 1.58GHz - 3.98GHz is presented. The architecture is based on a differential gyrator-C topology to transform intrinsic capacitance of a MOSFET to the emulated inductance. Due to high power consumption of Active Inductor, only a current source is used. This design has the capability to tune the inductor and Q-factor values from lOnH - 6OnH and 20 - 60 respectively. Furthermore, a new technique is proposed to ensure smaller inductance value can be achieved with smaller power consumption and die area.
