In this paper we describe the characterisation of a full custom analogue current drive chip usiong the Alcatel 2.4um CMOS process. The chip has been designed to drive currents in the micro-amp range through an array of six polymer micro-bridge devices. It exhibits good d.c. stability and a linear temperature coefficient of -0.0012/deg C. the chip can drive in a.c. as well as d.c. and gives a stable current pulse source at frequencies up to 10kHz.
