Analog VLSI signal processing: Why, where, and how?

  title={Analog VLSI signal processing: Why, where, and how?},
  author={Eric A. Vittoz},
  journal={VLSI Signal Processing},
Analog VLSI signal processing is most effective when precision is not required, and is therefore an ideal solution for the implementation of perception systems. The possibility to choose the physical variable that represents each signal allows all the features of the transistor to be exploited opportunistically to implement very dense timeand amplitudecontinuous processing cells. This paper describes a simple model that captures all the essential features of the transistor. This symmetrical… CONTINUE READING
