Abstract : An improved programmable analog voltage multiplier circuit means (PAVMCM) including various embodiments thereof that are operable in linear/nonlinear fashion. The PAVMCM is generally made up of multiplier circuit means, at least one switch means and at least one capacitor means. The switch means is connected to a programmable analog voltage (PAV) input and the capacitor means. The circuit means is comprised of a high impedance analog voltage (HIAV) programming input, an analog voltage input and current source output means. The capacitor means is connected to the switch means and the HIAV programming input. The capacitor means receives and dynamically stores a PAV input when the switch is closed and then applies the dynamically stored PAV input to the HIAV programming input of the circuit means when the switch is opened. The product of the PAV input and the analog voltage input for a circuit means provides the multiplied current output of the output means thereof. Patent Applications. (RH)
