Multi-input floating gate differential amplifier (FGDA) is proposed which can perform any convolution operation with differential structure and feedback loop. All operations are in the voltage mode. Only one terminal is required for the negative feedback which can suppress distortions due to mismatches of active elements. Possible applications include intelligent image sensor, where fully parallel DCT operation can be performed. A prototype chip is fabricated which is functional. A preliminary test result is reported.
