ABSTRACTThis paper describes a novel approach to system level analog design. A new abstraction level -the platform-is introduced to separate circuit design from design space exploration. An Analog Platform encapsulates analog components concurrently modeling their behavior and their achievable performances. Performance models are obtained through statistical sampling of circuit configurations. The design configurations space is specified with Analog Constraint Graphs so that the sampling space is significantl…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
