This paper presents a new method to automatically generate posynomial symbolic expressions for the performance characteristics of analog integrated circuits. The coefficient set as well as the exponent set of the posynomial expression are determined based on SPICE simulation data with device-level accuracy. We will prove that this problem corresponds to solving a non-convex optimization problem without local minima. The presented method is capable of generating posynomial performance expressions for both line…
