1. A method for implementing multiple functions in a device, said method comprising:

  • a) receiving configuration information into a configuration register of said device, said device comprising a plurality of analog blocks interconnected in a single integrated circuit, wherein each analog block in said plurality of analog blocks is selectively and electrically couplable to and decouplable from other analog blocks in said plurality of analog blocks, wherein said configuration information is for selectively and electrically coupling a particular combination of said analog blocks in a particular configuration according to an analog function to be performed; and

    b) electrically coupling selected analog blocks according to said configuration information to achieve said analog function, wherein said configuration information is implemented by said analog blocks to accomplish said coupling.
