Title: Variable bandwidth filter

Abstract

A variable bandwidth filter is described herein, wherein a bandwidth of a passband of the variable bandwidth filter is dynamically tunable. The variable bandwidth tuner is implemented on a CMOS chip, and acts to filter analog signals. The variable bandwidth filter comprises a plurality of finite impulse response (FIR) filters, wherein each FIR filter comprises a plurality of tunable transconductors. The tunable transconductors are tunable in their gain.
