FIELD PROGRAMMABLE ANALOG ARRAYS.
Edmund Pierzchala and Marek Perkowski invented first high-frequency, OTA-based, Field Programmable Analog Arrays.
Because they have digital control, they can work nicely with standard digital ICs.
1. Here , you have an example of an
elliptic high-frequency filter that can be easily mapped to our FPAA.
2. First, we create an abstract
flow-graph of this circuit .
3. Next, the flow-graph is mapped, using graph-isomorphism techniques,
to a regular array of identical cells, that have all short connections only to neighbors.
This is our realization in FPAA of the above filter.
As another example, please consider
a mapping of a tracking circuit for multiplying two matrices, realized with FPAA.

This paper presents some extensions and many
applications of high-frequency mixed-analog-digital FPAA.
Especially for Multiple-Valued Logic.

These slides are related to a more detailed problem: design of a Current Mode Amplifier-Integrator
for our high frequency FPAA.

PROJECTS AVAILABLE FOR STUDENTS:
If you are a student taking any of Marek Perkowski's
classes in Test and Design Automation, there are projects available related to
software and hardware aspects of FPAAs.
