Abstract
This paper presents a new design automation tool
based on a modified genetic algorithm kernel, in order to
increase efficiency on the analog circuit and system design cycle.
It combines a robust optimization with corners, machine
learning modeling and distributed processing capability able to
deal with multi-objective and highly constrained optimization
problems. The resulting optimization tool, simulation
capabilities, and extensible architecture are presented and the
improvement in design productivity is demonstrated for the
design of robust CMOS operational amplifiers.
