A CMOS-based Analog Function Generator: HSPICE Modeling and Simulation

Madina Hamiane

Abstract


In many Engineering applications, analog circuits present many advantages
over their digital counterparts and have recently been particularly used in a
wide range of signal processor circuits. In this paper, an analog non-linear
function synthesizer is presented based on a polynomial expansion model.
The proposed function synthesizer model is based on a 10th order
polynomial approximation of any of the required non-linear functions. The
polynomial approximations of these functions can then be implemented using
basic CMOS circuit blocks. The proposed circuit model can simultaneously
synthesize and generate many different mathematical functions. The circuit
model is designed and simulated with HSPICE and its performance is
demonstrated through the simulation of a number of non-linear functions.
