  author={Manan Pathak and Sung Kyu Lim},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Components, Packaging and Manufacturing Technology},
In this paper, we present a methodology for the automatic generation of layout for radio frequency (RF) designs using embedded passives. Our methodology is divided into three steps: 1) pre-layout optimization; 2) placement and routing; and 3) post-layout optimization. We show that our methodology generates layouts with small area and good performance response within a fraction of design time compared with fully manual design effort. We make use of circuit models to represent and optimize the… CONTINUE READING
