Francky Leyn, Georges Gielen , Willy Sansen Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium Abstract This paper describes a new DC modeling methodology applicable to CMOS integrated circuits. It is named operating point driven DC formulation because the operating point is specified directly, and the device dimensions W and L are determined out of it. With other(More)
This paper describes a new modeling methodology that allows to derive systematically behavioral signal path models of operational amplifiers. Combined with symbolic simulation, these models provide high qualitative insight in the small-signal functioning of a circuit. The behavioral signal path model provides compact interpretable expressions for the poles(More)
The task of a topology selector within an analog synthesis system is to find the best available analog circuit topology out of a library for a given set of input specification. The proposed selection method consists of a combination of two approaches: procedural filtering and rule-based filtering. The procedural filtering consists of two consecutive phases(More)
The complete application of a hierarchical top-down design methodology to analog sensor interface front-ends is presented: from system-level specifications down to implementation in silicon, including high-level synthesis, analog block generation and layout generation. A new approach for implementing accurate and fast power/area estimators for the different(More)
Modeling an analog circuit is a crucial step in analog circuit design because it gives insight in the operation of the circuit. Modeling a circuit is formalising the knowledge concerning that circuit. Abstractions are very important knowledge sources for a designer because they provide him qualitative understanding of the circuit. They provide the designer(More)
