News. Software. Field-programmable analog array. A field-programmable analog array (FPAA) is an integrated device containing configurable analog blocks (CAB) and interconnects between these blocks.

Field-programmable analog array

Unlike their digital cousin, the FPGA, the devices tend to be more application driven than general purpose as they may be current mode or voltage mode devices. For voltage mode devices, each block usually contains an operational amplifier in combination with programmable configuration of passive components. The blocks can, for example, act as summers or integrators. FPAAs usually operate in one of two modes: continuous time and discrete time. Discrete-time devices possess a system sample clock.

Field programmable analog arrays (FPAAs) from Anadigm® give you an analog equivalent to the FPGA, allowing you to design complex analog signal and processing functions into an integrated, drift-free, pre-tested device.

Anadigm FPAAs

By using AnadigmDesigner2 EDA software, the designer can construct complex analog functions using configurable analog modules (CAMs) as building blocks. With easy-to-use drag-and-drop interface, the design process can be measured in minutes allowing complete analog systems to be built rapidly, simulated immediately, and then downloaded to the FPAA chip for testing and validation. Anadigm FPAAs provide the following features: 3.3 volt and 5 volt statically reconfigurable devices that share the same input/output structure as our dpASP range. These devices require a reset before loading a new configuration bitstream. Since every application is different, we offer three Anadigm FPAA options, each with a distinct feature set. AnadigmDesigner2. Second-generation AnadigmDesigner®2 EDA software lets you design and implement dynamically reconfigurable analog circuits within a matter of minutes.


Build your circuit by dragging and dropping Configurable Analog Modules (CAMs), each of which can be used to implement a range of analog functions for which you set the parameters. AnadigmAssistant tools included with AnadigmDesigner®2 take the design process to an even higher level of abstraction, fully automating the construction of common filter types and "proportional, integral, derivative" controller circuits. AnadigmDesigner®2 includes a time domain functional simulator which provides a convenient way to assess your circuit's behavior without the need for a lab set-up. The simulator's user interface is intuitive and easily learned.Most of the steps are the same that you would take while bench testing.

This circuit uses the EVAL-CN0209-SDPZ circuit board and the EVAL-SDP-CB1Z System Demonstration Platform (SDP) evaluation board.

Fully Programmable Universal Analog Front End for Process Control Applications

The two boards have 120-pin mating connectors, allowing for the quick setup and evaluation of the circuit’s performance. The EVAL-CN0209-SDPZ board contains the circuit to be evaluated, as described in this note, and the SDP evaluation board is used with the CN0209 evaluation software to capture the data from the EVAL-CN0209-SDPZ circuit board.

Field Programmable Analog Arrays

By allowing more of the computation to be performed in low{ power analog circuits, cooperative analog-digital signal processing enables advanced signal processing functionality for very low-power systems and smart sensors. However, development and characterization of advanced analog VLSI systems is a lengthy process requiring a high level of expertise. This makes it difficult and time-consuming to perform research and develop applications of the technology. Field-Programmable Analog Arrays: A Floating-Gate Approach. Christopher M. Twigg.
