Hierarchical Modeling, Optimization, and Synthesis for System-Level Analog and RF Designs

  title={Hierarchical Modeling, Optimization, and Synthesis for System-Level Analog and RF Designs},
  author={Rob A. Rutenbar and Georges G. E. Gielen and Jaijeet S. Roychowdhury},
  journal={Proceedings of the IEEE},
The paper describes the recent state of the art in hierarchical analog synthesis, with a strong emphasis on associated techniques for computer-aided model generation and optimization. Over the past decade, analog design automation has progressed to the point where there are industrially useful and commercially available tools at the cell level-tools for analog components with 10-100 devices. Automated techniques for device sizing, for layout, and for basic statistical centering have been… CONTINUE READING
