Abstract: We present a new methodology for fast analog circuit synthesis, based on the use of parameterized layout generators and symbolic performance models (SPMs) in the synthesis loop. Fast layout generation is achieved by using efficient parameterized procedural layout generators. Fast performance estimation is achieved by using pre-compiled SPMs, stored as efficient DDD-like structures called Element Coefficient Diagrams. Techniques have been developed to include layout geometry effects in the SPMs. The accuracy a…
