Abstract : The patent describes a voltage-to-current converter circuit having a differential amplifier with one input coupled to receive voltage signals and an output coupled through transistors in Darlington configuration. The last transistor is coupled to a current source circuit to produce a current output from the collector and a negative feedback from the emitter to the other input of the differential amplifier. The current on the output is directly proportional to the input voltage with thermal stability.
