Abstract : A four-quadrant analog multiplier circuit provides an output which is proportional to two voltage inputs. The circuit includes a pair of depletion mode transistors having gain constants equal in magnitude and threshold voltages equal in magnitude. The gates of the transistors are coupled in common. One input is applied to the common gates. The other input and its inverse are separately applied to source/drain terminals of the two transistors. Patents. (jhd)
