    an ic? that's just way too complicated.

    the right approach depends on the requirement. it can be done with a lowly transistor, or a regulator, or an opamp + a transistor, etc.

    Use an op amp voltage to current converter, perhaps with a boots transistor. Google should find a lot of circuits.
