Abstract: As analog-circuit technology approaches maturity, the performance demands continue t o increase with each new generation of design. New applications continue t o emerge where the precision (i.e., accuracy, resolution and stability) of the existing designs is no longer sufficient. Thus, with each new generation of circuit functions, the limits of precision either need to be extended, or be maintained, while the other performance features such as bandwidth, response time or the noise characteristics are improve…
