Anadigm FPAA- an alternative to DSP?

Anadigm reported the shipments of AN220E04, the first field-programmable analog array (FPAA) chip, that can be dynamically configured for using in electronic control and management systems. The chip will be supplied with AnadigmDesigner 2 kit for AN220E04 software development.

FPAA abbreviation was chosen, as the chip is the some kind of FPGA analog equivalent, enabling to implement complex processing and control functions into a volume-produced chip. AN220E04 belongs to Anadigmvortex family, consisting of configurable analog modules (CAM) programmable logics, designed for speeding up analog module development.

AN220E04 is designed to replace discrete components of ASIC/ASSP devices in signal control, filtering, input signal processing of digital systems, autocorrection and other tasks, traditionally solved by analog modules in the industry car construction, medicine, communications, testing equipment and precision tools.

Coupled with a DSP processor, AN220E04 can considerably improve the performance of a digital-analog system, and even replace DSP in some cases.

Chips are packaged into 44-pib QFP, the price in over 10000 unit consignments is $15 per chip.
