Translinear circuits have been historically useful for neuromorphic/biomimetic circuit design. One such example is analog artificial neural networks, which have applicability to intelligent sensing and control. Technology scaling (reduction in the size and the maximum power of a transistor) has favored fabrication techniques that benefit digital designs as opposed to analog designs. However, this trend makes it more and more difficult to use the traditional translinear circuit approaches. Thus, we are researching new ways to realize translinear circuits using time-mode circuits, which are more immune to the pitfalls of technology scaling.
