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)
A methodology is presented for obtaining explicit formulas for the solution of class-P piecewise linear (PL) networks and, inherently, for the linear complementary problem (LCP). The method uses the b c operator, which has been previously defined in the literature to extend the explicit PL model descriptions of Chua. An important consequence of the(More)
In this paper we compare three different methodologies for analog high-level synthesis. Two optimization-based methods-one with simulations in the loop, the other with equations-and a library-based approach are discussed and illustrated with experimental results. The comparison is made by means of a real life design example-a radiation detector interface(More)
