Melexis, IMMS, TU Dresden, TU Ilmenau & MunEDA present Paper at DATE2011 Grenoble

Grenoble, France - Monday, March 07th, 2011

Melexis, IMMS, TU Dresden, TU Ilmenau & MunEDA present a paper about Strategies for Initial Sizing and Operating Point Analysis of Analog Circuits at DATE2011 in Grenoble.
The paper will be presented as part of the DATE2011 HOT TOPIC Session – Synthesis Supported Increase of Efficiency in Analogue Design that will take place on Thursday March 17, 2011.
The session has been organised by Jacek Nowak from IMMS and moderated by Prof. Ralf Sommer from TU Ilmenau. Analogue design still is the bottleneck in the development of mixedsignal
ICs. This is due to the fact that the three steps in analogue circuit design – topology generation or modification, sizing and layout generation – are mainly carried out by hand. In this special session four methods will be presented which allow a semi-automated
design process. These approaches include a fully automated hierarchical topology generation for analogue circuits, a generation of a compensation network by automated topology modification, a methodology for sizing based on a combination of analytic and
numerical techniques and a method for modular layout generation. The methods and the resulting tools relieve the designer from routine tasks, allow more space for creativity and enable re-use.
