Abstract

The ADSA system is integrated within the CADENCE DFII framework and provides a user-guided environment to support high-level analogue synthesis. Synthesis is based upon multi-level optimisation and the user has flexibility in either using sensitivity-based or knowledge-based guidance of the optimisation process. A key feature is the accommodation of interaction between analogue blocks; this process is based upon successive refinement of behavioural models and the transfer of modelling data both up and down the design hierarchy.
