This paper presents an analog checker whose error threshold can be adaptively adjusted according to its input signal levels. In addition, the proposed circuit can be programmed to implement different adaptive schemes. Factors that affect the stability and accuracy of the proposed design are investigated. Finally, simulation results are presented.
