A CMOS voltage-mode divider, which can operate for low supply voltage and low power dissipation, is presented in this paper. The proposed voltage-mode divider can be used to realize a pseudo-exponential function generator. The experimental results of the proposed voltage-mode divider show that, under the supply voltage VDD=2.5 V, the linearity error is less than 1.18% and the power consumption is only 102 µW. Also the proposed pseudo-exponential function generator exhibits a 15 dB output dynamic range and the linear error is less than1.54%. Both the proposed circuits have been fabricated in a 0.5 µm N-well CMOS 2P2M process. The proposed circuits are expected to be useful in analog signal processing applications.
