(54)Transconductor and filter circuit


(57) A transconductor and filter circuit (101) is described in one embodiment, a front end module (102) within the transconductor and filter circuit converts a differential input voltage signal (111) into a differential output current (112) and supplies the output current at a differential output. A filter module (103) coupled to the differential output of the front end module receives the differential output current, converts the output current into an intermediary differential voltage, and filters the differential voltage to obtain a filtered differential output voltage signal having low output impedance
