Field Programmable Analog Arrays are dynamically programmable analog arrays. The base unit comparable to an FPGA LUT or slice is called a CAM or configurable analog module. It is composed of op amps, comparators, resistors and capacitors. An FPAA device will have SRAM or flash ram configuration of interconnect of CAMs and CAM parameters to create a custom analog function.

Utility of Field Programmable Analog Arrays

The only FPAA-related question I can find is THIS, but it doesn't really introduce me to the area. The concept seems like a nifty thing to have as part of an analog toolkit. I can't necessarily ...
