Abstract

A promising new approach to shorten the design trajectory of analog integrated circuits without giving up functionality is formed by the class of dynamic translinear circuits. This paper presents a structured design method for this young, yet rapidly developing, circuit paradigm. As a design example, a 1-V 1.6-μA class-AB translinear sinh integrator for audio filter applications, is presented.
