Analog Computer on a Chip – Compiling Solutions
The original room-sized analog computers were programmed using paper drawings and manual cable connections. The Apollo IC is the first digitally programmed analog computer, implemented in a 4x4 mm2 CMOS IC and capable of solving problems with high speed and extremely low power. The high level programming language of an analog computer are the differential equations describing the problem. The solution to each problem is realized by the proper interconnection and calibration of the analog computer elements in such a way as to produce the desired results. Deducing from the equations the right interconnections and implementing these in the analog computer circuitry is the role of an analog computer compiler. Such a compiler has been developed for the first time by MIT researchers for the Apollo IC analog computer. In this paper we will present the integration of the analog computer hardware and software and present examples of the steps to derive solutions for real life applications.
