The explosive growth and development of the integrated circuit
market over the last few years have been mostly limited to the
digital VLSI domain. The difficulty of automating the design
process in the analog domain, the fact that a general analog design
methodology remained undefined, and the poor performance of earlier
tools have left the analog world with few, if any, options for
automated VLSI design.Analog VLSI Design Automation may well mark
the dawn of a new era. It describes a fully integrated, top-down
approach to analog VLSI design automation and presents a
methodology for each level of the design hierarchy. The authors
define an analog VLSI design automation flow in which every tool
has its predefined objectives and interfaces. They present working
examples for each tool, and demonstrate the validity of their
approach by running their design automation system from the top to
the bottom levels in three different case studies.Technologies like
systems-on-a-chip (SOCs) have created a pressing need for automated
design tools capable of handling analog circuit blocks. The ideas
presented in this book are fully adaptable to various design
classes.; Using these ideas, you will be able to develop new
methodologies and algorithms that will significantly reduce design
costs and time to market for many practical systems.
