PCDS : a new approach for the development of circuit generators in analog IC design

  • While digital IC design is highly automated, analog circuits are still handcrafted in a time-consuming, manual fashion today. This paper introduces a novel Parameterized Circuit Description Scheme (PCDS) for the development of procedural analog schematic generators as parameterized circuits. Circuit designers themselves can use PCDS to create circuit automatisms which capture valuable expert knowledge, offer full topological flexibility, and enhance the re-use of well-established topologies. The generic PCDS concept has been successfully implemented and employed to create parameterized circuits for a broad range of use cases. The achieved results demonstrate the efficiency of our PCDS approach and the potential of parameterized circuits to increase automation in circuit design, also to benefit physical design by promoting the common schematic-driven-layout flow, and to enhance the applicability of circuit synthesis approaches.
