Power line noise is one of critical problems in bio-sensing. Various approaches utilizing both analog and digital techniques has been proposed. However, these approaches need active circuits with a wide dynamic range. N-path notch filters which implementable using passive components can be a promising solution to this problem. However, the notch depth of a conventional N-path notch filter is limited by the number of path. A new N-path notch filter with additional S/H circuit is proposed. Simulation results show that the proposed topology improves the notch depth by 43 dB.
