This paper presents a Field-Programmable Digital Filter (FPDF) IC that employs carry-propagation-free redundant arithmetic algorithms for faster computation and multiple-valued current-mode circuit technology for high-density low-power implementation. The original contribution of this paper is to evaluate, through actual chip fabrication, the potential impact of multiple-valued current-mode circuit technology on the reduction of hardware complexity required for DSP-oriented programmable ICs. The prototype FPDF fabrication with 0.6 µm CMOS technology demonstrates that the chip area and power consumption can be reduced to 41% and 71%, respectively, compared with the standard binary logic implementation.
