— This paper describes a novel technique for implementing ultra low-voltage/low-power digital circuits. The effective threshold voltage seen from a control gate is adjusted during a UV-light activated tuning procedure. The optimal effective threshold voltage matching the supply voltage and speed may be programmed by UV-light through an activated conductance(More)
In this paper we propose a novel technique for programming oating gate MOS transistors (FGMOS) in low-power design. By threshold-shifting low-power operation is possible with the cost of an extra polysilicon layer. Combining the FGMOS transistor with a UV-activated (UV) conduc-tance give rise to the UV-light programmable oating-gate MOS (FGUVMOS)(More)
In this paper we present a new proposal for implementing a voltage-mode Multiple-Valued (MV) maximum or minimum function. The circuit has been implemented using Recharged Semi Floating-Gate (SFG) transistors. The benefit with this design is, the proposed circuits can easily be fabricated using a conventional CMOS process. The circuit is suitable for a low(More)
— This article presents two new, reconfigurable multi-input floating-gate circuits able to produce either the INVERTED SUM / INVERTED CARRY functions for a FULL-ADDER, XNOR / NAND, or XOR / NOR. The circuits contain four MOSFETs and fourteen or nine capacitors, respectively. SPICE simulations are shown, demonstrating the principal operation, together with(More)
