Traditionally, analog circuit design is a time consuming and difficult task due to the complex relations between performance measures and design parameters. Analog design is therefore sometimes looked upon as a black art in electronics where unstructured and vaguely defined design methodologies are used.
In this project the aim is to change this situation by introducing a structured path for analog design. The work involves the development of analog design automation tools to reduce design times, increase performance, and increase circuit robustness. In this way we aim at bridging the gap between analog and digital design efficiency that exist today.
Our focus is on the design and implementation of high-performance integrated analog circuits, filters, and filter banks for use in analog/digital interfaces, anti-aliasing and reconstruction filters in A/D and D/A converters, etc. However, the concepts developed within this project can be applied to virtually all analog and RF circuit designs.
A more detailed description of the project, design cases, and the current status of the design tool are given in the links below.
