he proposed Metamutator configuration employs only one Fully Differential Current Conveyor (FDCCII) which has 9 terminals including ground. By properly interconnecting these terminals a 4-port Metamutator is obtained without use of any other external element. It maintains the following advantages: (i) use of only one active element: less is the number of active devices less is the amount of disparity, (ii) possibility of realizing Memristors, Capacitors, Inductors, Frequency Dependent Negative Resistor (FDNR), which can be used to make integrated circuit active filters, (iii) no need to impose component choice constraints. SPICE simulations' results using TSMC 0.18 mu m CMOS process parameters and +/- 0.9V supply voltages validate the theoretical predictions.
