A persistent criticism of analog synthesis techniques is that they cannot cope with the complexity of realistic industrial designs, especially system-level designs. We show how recent advances in simulation-based synthesis can be augmented, via appropriate macromodeling, to attack complex analog blocks. To support this claim, we resynthesize from scratch, in several different styles, a complex equalizer/filter block from the frontend of a commercial ADSL CODEC, and verify by full simulation… CONTINUE READING
