  journal={International Journal of Electrical and Computer Engineering},
In this article we describe new model for determination of fault in circuit and also we provide detailed analysis of tolerance of circuit, which is considered one of the important parameter while designing the circuit. We have done mathematical analysis to provide strong base for our model and also done simulation for the same. This article describes detailed analysis of parametric fault in analog VLSI circuit. The model is tested for different frequencies for compactness and its flexibility… Expand

Minimizing production test time to detect faults in analog circuits
Algorithms for fault-driven test set selection are presented based on an analysis of the types of tests needed for different types of faults, and a major reduction in testing time should come from reducing the number of specification tests that need to be performed. Expand
Symbolic sensitivity analysis in the sizing of analog integrated circuits
A graph-based symbolic technique is presented for deriving analytical expressions for differential gain, common-mode gain and then common- mode rejection ratio (CMRR) of operational transconductance amplifiers (OTAs) and a comparison between the derived symbolic expressions and HSpice simulations is made to show that the circuit elements causing large sensitivities implies large performance variations.
