We describe ASTRX/OBLX, a synthesis system that can size high-performance analog circuit topologies to meet usersupplied linear performance specifications without designer-supplied equations. We present synthesis results for a large suite of circuit benchmarks and show that, when compared to prior approaches, ASTRX/OBLX can synthesize high-performance(More)
In the development of new FPGA architectures, a designer must balance speed, density and routing flexibility. In this paper, we discuss a new FPGA architecture based on a patented [1], novel, segmented routing fabric that is targeted to high performance and predictability but does not sacrifice routability or area efficiency. Current segmented architectures(More)
We present a new synthesis strategy that can automate fully the path from an analog circuit topology and performance specifications to a sized circuit schematic. This strategy relies on asymptotic waveform evaluation to predict circuit performance and simulated annealing to solve a novel unconstrained optimization formulation of the circuit synthesis(More)
Object Oriented Analysis and Design (OOAD) is increasingly popular as a set of techniques that can be used to initially analyze and design software. Unfortunately, OOAD is a relatively new concept and many large legacy systems predate it. This paper presents the approach one company followed in applying OOAD techniques to an existing 2.5 million line code(More)
