An area efficient and parasitic insensitive technique for the implementation of a field programmable analogue array is proposed. The connections between configurable analogue blocks are realised using MOSFET transconductors. The conductance is controlled by varying the gate voltages defined by a multivalued memory system or external/internal signals.
