A low-voltage, low-power generalized power-law function generator
2005 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
In this paper a simple low voltage circuit topology able to generate any positive integer power-law function is presented. The proposed circuit exploits MOSFETs operating in the weak inversion regime and is based on piecewise linear approximation of the nonlinear function to be generated. An in-depth mathematical analysis is deployed. The instances of a squarer and a cube-law circuit are thoroughly examined through simulation and the results are presented.
