dc.description.abstractWhile the development of reconfigurable analog platforms is a blossoming field, the tradeoff between usability and flexibility continues to be a major barrier. Field Programmable Analog Arrays (FPAAs) built with translinear elements offer a promising solution to this problem. These FPAAs can be built to use previously developed synthesis procedures for translinear circuits. Furthermore, large-scale translinear FPAAs can be built using floating-gate transistors as both the computational elements and the reconfigurable interconnect network. Two FPAAs, built using Multiple Input Translinear Elements (MITEs), have been designed, fabricated, and tested. These devices have been programmed to implement various circuits including multipliers, squaring circuits, current splitters, and filters. In addition, synthesis, place-and-route, and programming tools have been created in order to implement a reconfigurable system where the circuits implemented are described only by equations. Supporting circuitry for interfacing with current-mode, translinear FPAAs has also been developed. This circuitry included a voltage-to-current converter, a current-to-voltage converter, and a pipelined analog-to-digital converter. The continued development of translinear FPAAs will lead to a reconfigurable analog system that allows for a large portion of the design to be abstracted away from the user.en_US
