Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


A framework that automates the design of common analog integrated circuit modules has been developed. The framework, ACACIA, consists of three tools: OASYS, which transforms module specifications into sized schematics; ANAGRAM, which transforms sized schematics into mask geometry; and a graphics inter-face that facilitates automatic exploration of trade-offs between design specifications by providing 3-D display of attainable performance surfaces.
