The experimental results from a fabricated integrated circuit of fractional-order capacitor emulators are reported. The chip contains emulators of capacitors of orders 0.3, 0.4, 0.5, 0.6 and 0.7 with nano-Farad pseudo-capacitances that can be adjusted through a bias current. Two off-chip capacitors are used to set the bandwidth of each emulator independently. The chip was designed in Austria microsystems (AMS) 0.35μ CMOS.
