Abstract
A voltage-current converter is described having a quasi-complementary class-AB architecture that is particularly suited to implementation using discrete power MOSFETs. High-voltage mirror designs are presented, enabling the construction of sources with kilovolt compliance range, tens of watts of output power and greater than 100 kHz bandwidth. V output impedance and distortion below 1% can be obtained with no trimming or transistor matching.

Keywords
Controlled current source, piezoelectric charge control
