The analog calculating circuits perform with benefits on fewer transistors and interconnections, high speed, and low power for the approximate computing applications, but suffer from the poor programmability. This work explores an architecture of programmable analog circuitry to calculate arbitrary functions with acceptable accuracy. The support vector… CONTINUE READING
