Hello!
FPAAs from Anadigm or Zetex are now available for to implement analog circuits. I'm wondering wether they meet the expectations: precision, noise, etc. Has anybody tried those devices and compared the results with the same circuit implemented with discrete components? Conclusions?
Thx.

Hello tdo48,
I didn't try but you are right,for example anadigm's FPAA is not well in terms of frequency and i think is usefull for low frequency application.

In the early 90's there were lot of people developing "seas of transistors" to simplify analog design. There were some that worked well from the point of view of time to market and configurability but they were expensive and always lacked from performance
