Creation of Programmable Analog Standard Cell Libraries Enabling Reconfigurable Low Power Systems-on-Chip
MetadataShow full item record
A standard cell is a level of abstraction that creates logical circuit building blocks that can be assembled to build complex architectures. The concept of abstraction using standard cells is a well-established notion in digital architecture. In fact, productivity of digital designers has been greatly supported by these cells, yet there isn't any widespread equivalent in the analog domain. Generally, due to the large number of design parameters that tend to change across process nodes, it has not been viewed as a worthwhile endeavor to create analog standard cells without reconfigurability of those parameters. This work aims to show how leveraging floating gates can create abstractable analog circuits which build into standard cells that enable large-scale, low power, mixed signal sytems-on-chip.
