dc.description.abstractA field-programmable analog array (FPAA) using a standard-CMOS wide-dynamic-range translinear element (TE) is introduced. The FPAA configurable analog blocks (CABs) are based on a reconfigurable translinear cell (RTC), capable of implementing the basic circuit elements required by translinear and log-domain circuit design. The interfacing is provided by an I/O programmable cell, which allows for easier connectivity between the signal-processing core and the external circuitry. As a proof-of-concept, a 5 $times$ 5 RTC FPAA testchip was implemented in 0.35- $mu{hbox {m}}$ CMOS technology. A set of various circuit primitives, such as one- and four-quadrant multipliers, an Euclidean distance operator and a fourth-order log-domain filter, were mapped on the chip in order to demonstrate the versatility of the approach. FPAA bandwidth reaches 20 MHz with a power consumption of 30 $muhbox{W/TE}$ and precision errors below 3%.
