    Abstract

    Single-to-differential converter for generating two balanced output signals from one single ended input signal, comprising: first (3) and second (6) output terminals for providing the balanced output signals; a first transistor (M1) having a control electrode coupled to an input terminal (4) for receiving the input signal, a first main electrode coupled to a supply voltage terminal (1) for receiving a supply voltage and a second main electrode coupled to the first output terminal (3); a second transistor (M2) having a control electrode coupled to a bias voltage terminal (5), a first main electrode coupled to the control electrode of the first transistor (M1) and a second main electrode connected to the second output terminal (6); a diode connected third transistor (M3) having its main current path coupled to the first output terminal (3);; and a diode connected fourth transistor (M4) having a its main current path connected to the second output terminal (6)
